HiQ with its design team from Great Apes wins two Red Dot and one Best of the Best in this years Red Dot Design Awards with the projects Lux Nemus and Levi Resort. Lux Nemus wins Best of the Best: Interface & User Experience Design and Spatial Communication: Light Installations and Levi Resort wins Interface & User Experience Design: Mobile User Interfaces.

The project Lux Nemus, which consists of a collection of custom-built walls featuring Metsä’s wood, fibre and other innovative products, is an interactive projection experience that is part of the visitor center Pro Nemus by Metsä Group. The product collages have got projections that allow visitors to interact with the walls via a touch screen. Visitors can highlight individual products, explore and learn more about them through unique light projections. The core of the installation is to showcase how Metsä Group uses each part of a tree as efficiently as possible for the purpose that creates the most value. 

The Levi Resort App provides quick and easy access to all of Levi Ski Resort’s outdoor adventures and it’s the digital companion for all visitors of the Ski Resort. On top of innovative slope and lift services it’s the key to the Levi Ski Resort loyalty program. The app provides efficient navigation, real-time and spatial data visualization, as well as open geodata and tailored map projection.  

– We are proud that these two challenging projects are recognized on an international level and acknowledged in such an important competition like the Red Dot Design Awards. We have poured our hearts into these while taming new tools and tech, and we see the awards as a proof of the high level of execution and innovation in our work, says Lukasz Geratowski, Senior Designer at Great Apes.
