Design and sustainability in harmony: Red Dot Design Award and German Design Award for the Revo.PRIME
Two of Germany’s most prestigious design awards go to the new Revo.PRIME revolving door by GEZE. The German Design Award in the Excellent Product Design – Building and Elements category and the Red Dot Design Award, also in the Product Design category. The two awards recognise outstanding design achievements, and are a seal of quality for high-quality and design-led products of distinction.
Fewer draughts plus lower energy consumption
During celebrations, the Red Dot Award is presented to Thomas Lehnert, Business Solutions Manager at GEZE, and Anna Zündel from the Validation Department.
With a canopy height of just 75 mm and narrow profiles of 60 mm, the design-oriented revolving door solution ensures maximum transparency. The Revo.PRIME thus creates a highlight even in the building’s entrance area – including all the benefits of reducing draughts as well as dirt and noise. The Revo.PRIME also makes a considerable contribution to saving energy. In fact thanks to its reduced power consumption, it needs a huge 30 per cent less in comparison with earlier models.
Top for comfort and transparency
The new ceiling construction on the door itself also enables the Revo.PRIME to be used in highly constrained spaces. The narrow profile views on the door leaf and side panels enhance the visually appealing impression and increase transparency. Thanks to the brushless motor, it scores highly thanks to exceptionally high access convenience. Connection to building automation systems is possible. It is thus ideally suited for use in hotels and shopping centres, as well as office and administrative buildings.

Favourite of design-oriented architects and building contractors
Precisely these features make the Revo.PRIME the favourite of design-oriented architects and building contractors – and earned it the two coveted design awards. The German Design Award jury praised the “high degree of transparency” in particular, and with it, the “pleasant feeling when walking through”. The jury's verdict on the Red Dot Design Award singled out the high design quality in particular.
Prestigious design awards with a global reach

The Red Dot Design Award is one of the biggest design competitions in the world. Participants submit products, communication work and brands as well as prototypes and concepts in three disciplines. The ‘Red Dot’ award is an international symbol of good design quality.
The German Design Award is the premium prize of the German Design Council. With its global reach and international appeal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the design landscape across all industries. Since 2012, extraordinary submissions in product design, communication design and architecture have been recognised annually.
The new GEZE Revo.PRIME will be available from July.
