Leitz – part of ACCO Brands – has been awarded three Red Dot Design Awards 2021 for their innovative product ranges, including Leitz IQ Protect Premium Shredders, Leitz Recycle and selected products from the Leitz Cosy Range
Leitz are proud to be at the forefront of all lifestyle and product trends with sustainability in mind. Anticipating and responding to industry trends at an early stage has allowed Leitz to offer customers the products that they need right now. Leitz has seen the rise of the home office for many years and invested relentlessly in this segment as well as continuously extended their portfolio for this demographic in order to meet all requirements.
The Cosy Range from Leitz was developed primarily with home working in mind, combining home style comfort with premium quality. Red Dot have recognised a wide selection of Leitz Cosy products, including various desktop solutions, staplers and hole punches, water bottles, glass whiteboards, glass desk notepads, wall clocks, MyBox storage boxes and tape dispensers, for their minimalist design and ability to meet our ever-changing needs.
Continuing with the theme of working from home, Red Dot have also selected the Leitz IQ Premium Protect Shredders range to receive a Design Award. Where high security shredders have previously been perceived as large, industrial office machines, the super-quiet Leitz IQ Premium Protect Shredders allow the consumers to enjoy all the benefits of a business grade shredder from the comfort of their own homes. With no compromise on quality or security, the modern and compact design will fit neatly in any room in the house.
As a business Leitz is dedicated to lean manufacturing, reducing waste and offering long lasting premium quality products. The progress on reducing environmental impact has been documented in a published annual sustainability report since 2010. Leitz have been working with experts Climate Partner to reduce their carbon footprint and develop products that are eco-friendly while retaining the same quality and style expected from the Leitz brand. The Leitz Recycle range was launched to help us increase our productivity while minimising our carbon footprint. With every product made with recycled material, fully recyclable and carbon neutral, Red Dot have recognised this range not only for helping us protect our future, but also for its style and functionality.
This prestigious recognition has been welcomed by ACCO UK marketing director Elisabete Wells, who commented: “At Leitz we invest in understanding consumers, developing products they really need and will add style to their home or office. We see the three Red Dot Design Awards as a testament to the forward-thinking Leitz brand and our high quality and innovative product ranges.”
