The prestigious German Design Award, which has been conferred since 1953 by the German Design Council, the leading centre of German brand and design, recognises innovative products and projects, as well as their manufacturers and designers, every year. The prize goes to products that combine exceptional design trends, optimal user friendliness and design oriented to the target group.
Dürr Dental was crowned the winner for excellent product design in the Medical, Rehabilitation and Health Care category for its MyFlow handpiece, which was developed specifically for the Lunos prophylaxis system. The company was described as “embodying a modern understanding of medicine” by the German Design Council, one of the world’s leading authorities for communication and market launches in the design industry.
With its ingenious operation and quick set-up, MyFlow sets itself apart from other powder jet handpieces that have been seen on the market previously, Dürr Dental stated. The way in which the exchangeable chamber is integrated into the device enables the powder to be changed quickly and safely with the aid of the innovative bayonet catch. “MyFlow is part of the comprehensive ‘Lunos’ prophylaxis system. It has been designed to facilitate fully automated disinfection and cleaning in compliance with the very latest standards,” explained Katrin Probst, Product Manager of Dental Care at Dürr Dental.
In the Sterilisation category, the new Hygoclave 90 with DuraSteam technology impressed the judges, achieving a special mention. During the development stage, importance was attached to high durability and maximum reliability. “DuraSteam technology stands for the use of high-quality materials, cleverly designed components and processing quality—made in Germany,” said Björn Höppe, Product Manager of Hygiene Technology at Dürr Dental.
This is not the first time that Dürr Dental has been recognised for its products. Besides the German Design Award, the company has received the iF DESIGN AWARD and the Red Dot Design Award.
