SmartPilot wins prestigious Red Dot Award

Published: May 2020

Shore and Ypsomed have won a 2021 Red Dot Award for the innovative SmartPilot for UnoPen, a recently launched connected device that enables simple adherence monitoring.

SmartPilot for UnoPen required Shore to support Ypsomed’s in-house team with our expertise in Industrial Design, Product Architecture and User Interface Design, transforming their platform UnoPen Injector into a fully connected system. This tried and tested alliance has now been successfully utilised on a wide range of Ypsomed’s Drug Delivery Devices.

Orfeo Niedermann, Ypsomed’s Director of Business Development Delivery Systems was delighted to acknowledge Shore’s involvement, saying: “Congratulations to Shore. This award is an excellent achievement and reward for our good cooperation.”

Geoff Jones, Business Development Manager at Shore pointed to the value of the long-term partnership: “Our team have really enjoyed working with Ypsomed for a number of years on many interesting and successful devices. We look forward to further collaborative success in the future.”

Smart Pilot for UnoPen can be viewed in the online exhibition on the Red Dot website from 21 June 2021. That date also marks the beginning of the Red Dot Design Week, during which this year’s award winners (companies and designers) and will be celebrated online.

From 22 June 2021, SmartPilot will also be included in the exhibition “Design on Stage” in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, where all the award-winning products are showcased. Visitors to the museum can experience the quality of the designs in a space that features contemporary design solutions and historical industrial architecture. The Red Dot Design Yearbook 2021/2022, which will be published in August, provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and trends in product design.
