INTELLIGENT URBAN TOY Won a Red Dot Design Award!



Our work "Intelligent Urban Toy" won a Red Dot Design Award 2022.


The intelligent Urban Toy redefines the urban spaces in the new high technology era.


Public space is where the city’s main function gets displayed. From gathering places to recreational parks, from commercial centers to famous hot spots where internet celebrities go, the public space is changing its faces all the time. Nowadays, as the advance of technology, and the advent of the 5G era, people’s demand for public space is still changing and updating. A public space with only basic functions could no longer meet the expectations of the public. How can we use novel ways to add more elements to urban public space to make it adapt to this era? Smart urban toy is our answer. What kind of sparks will be generated when the giant urban massing encounters the small scales of the urban toy, and how does the urban toy fit into the high-tech era is what our design wants to answer.

About Red Dot Award

The distinction “Red Dot” has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the award breaks down into three disciplines: the Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. Each competition is organized once every year.


History of Red Dot Award

The Red Dot Design Award looks back on a history of more than 60 years: in 1955, a jury meets for the first time to evaluate the best designs of the time. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Prof. Dr. Peter Zec develops the name and the brand of the award. In 1993, a separate discipline for communication design is introduced, in 2005 another one for prototypes and concepts.
