Philips takes a multidisciplinary approach to design, with integrated teams working closely with clinicians, patients and consumers to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges they face, using these insights to create new and unexpected solutions that are explored from three perspectives: user experience, technical feasibility and business viability. With hospital staff increasingly overwhelmed with data, Philips’ designers are shifting from visualizing data to harnessing AI models that generate meaningful insights from this data, simplifying the lives of our patients and clinicians.
In 2022, Philips was awarded the honorary title of ‘Red Dot: Design Team of the Year’ in recognition of the team’s multidisciplinary approach to creating integrated solutions that address major challenges in healthcare, such as aging populations, the increase in chronic illnesses, and escalating healthcare costs, together with its strong focus on the user and patient experience. A Red Dot tradition, Peter was on-stage at the ceremony to present the award to this year’s winner, Logitech, represented by Alastair Curtis, the company’s Chief Design Officer.
The Red Dot Gala and Designers’ Night took place in the Red Dot Design Museum (Essen, Germany) on June 19, 2023. Red Dot design awards are awarded for submitted products that are judged by the Red Dot jury to be outstanding in terms of their aesthetic appeal, functionality, smartness or innovation. This year’s award of 40 Red Dot design awards brings the total number the brand has garnered over the years to 500.
