Neu-Isenburg — LSG Sky Chefs has been recognized with the "red dot: best of the best 2009" award. A total of 1.400 companies from 49 countries submitted entries. The jury then selected 49 products out of 3.200 submissions as "red dot: best of the best." The LSG Sky Chefs Catering Logistics design team accepted this prestigious recognition yesterday evening in front of 2.500 guests at a ceremony in Essen (Germany).

Since 1955, the Design Center of North Rhine-Westphalia (Design Zentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen) recognizes outstanding product design with this famous dot. Producers and designers from a variety of industries can apply in several categories, which are then evaluated for innovation, functionality, quality, ergonomics etc.

The design team of LSG Sky Chefs has received the award for the newly developed Lufthansa Economy Class equipment. The winning equipment is characterized by its close tie-in to the Lufthansa brand in a very distinctive manner. Additionally, it has been proven to withstand the high level of wear and tear that these products are typically put through in the catering, washing and transportation processes.

"For us this award is recognition of our design competence and quality as well as an outstanding confirmation of our performance. In our industry, differentiation via design has become key to successfully position", said Joao Monteiro, RCOO Solutions.

In addition to the red dot award, the Economy Class equipment has been nominated for the "Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland 2010" (Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany 2010), the top design recognition in the country (www.designpreis.de).
