The Dainese Group participates in the “Red Dot Design Award” introducing various products and earning prestigious recognition for the second time in two years. The AWA M1 jacket from the Winter collection won in the Product Design category and also received the exclusive “Red Dot: Best of the Best” award.
The jury for the Red Dot Design Award – the event that recognizes international products with the most original and futuristic functional design – evaluated all of the products originating from a total of 59 different countries. Of these, the prize for the 2018 Product Design category was awarded to the AWA M1 winter jacket.
AWA M1 was also named “Red Dot: Best of the Best” and it is described by the jury as “impressive for its qualities, ideal for extreme outdoor activities. The sophisticated design gives excellent functional properties and allows the jacket to adapt to everyone’s necessities and to every climate condition”.
The AWA M1 originated from the AWA-All Weather Activity cross-functional concept. It is the collection's top-end “layering system” item, composed of an external shell with three breathable, waterproof layers and an insulating, packable inner jacket. The layers of both garments incorporate the TRAILKNIT seamless knitted structure, whose elasticity enables it to adhere closely to the body. To ensure waterproofing even in the harshest alpine conditions, the knitted panels are laminated with a waterproof, breathable patented membrane, while the external fabric is DWR treated.
