TMH Wins International Red Dot Design Award 2020


The 2020 iteration of the global Red Dot Design competition saw TMH’s new rolling stock design (brand DNA) ranked amongst the winners of the Design Concept discipline. The high quality and innovation of TMH’s approach were highly commended by the judges. 

Created with the help of the Europe-based Italdesign studio in November 2019, the novel exterior concept is already being translated into real-life products. The Russian National Centre for Industrial Design and Innovation 2050.LAB handles all brand DNA adjustments, ensuring the product's compliance with rail transport regulations. This process involves fine-tuning design solutions, searching for new materials, and re-training personnel.

“I extend my congratulations to the entire TMH team,” said Kirill Lipa, the CEO of TMH. “Having been honoured with this prestigious award from the professional community, I hope we will continue to broaden our reach, making our new TMH vehicle design a household name across the world.”

The Red Dot Design Award is an acclaimed international design competition. The 2020 judges panel included Professor Masayo Ave, Gordon Bruce, Martin Darbyshire, and other distinguished designers. 

The award is broken down into three disciplines: Product Design, Brands & Communication Design, and Design Concept, with the latter introduced as a standalone category in 2005 to recognise the need to identify and celebrate new design concepts and innovation.  In 2020, 4,170 entries from 52 countries were submitted for the Red Dot Design Concept Award.

As previously announced, 2020 is TMH's Design Year. So far, the Company has unveiled its new brand DNA design concept, and integration is now underway. The concept involves a unified approach to design and comprises a unique set of striking visual elements. This will be reflected across all of the Company’s potential products, helping to make TMH rolling stock instantly recognisable.
