Oclean W1 Oral Irrigator Wins Red Dot for High Design Quality
Shenzhen Yunding Information Technology Co., Ltd./Ocleandesign lab (Song Kan & Haoxiang Hu) has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international jury has awarded OCLEAN W1 the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.
The traditional dental irrigator relies on the impact force generated by jet water to clean the gingival crevices. Because of the high density of water, the impact force is also greater, so it is very common for the gingiva to suffer impact bleeding. Oclean's new patented aerodynamic oral irrigator, through innovative aerodynamic technology, mixes air into water. Oxygen-containing air bubbles are continuously sprayed to clean and penetrate deep into the teeth and periodontal pockets as to achieve aerobic flushing. While miniaturizing the volume, it can also maintain full power so that the user can enjoy the freshness of a clean smile, anytime anywhere.
Its ergonomic grip design fits comfortably in the hand, especially with its Egyptian Plover bionic design and Nine Axis 3D laser carving process finish. The innovative generation of Ocleanpatented structural design produces compressed bodies for a smaller size (only 150g in weight), which is smaller and lighter than most smartphones. With its magnetic direct charging design, there is no need to change the battery, making it both economical and convenient. It can be charged immediately after use from the magnetic direct charging, and will be fully charged in only about three hours.
Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec on the laureates
“The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year. The design of their products is excellent, in terms of both the aesthetic and the functionality. It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.
Evaluation platform for good design
The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognises the best products for a given year. The roughly 50 jurors were once again true to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts comprises specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinised the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity.
