For the first time, Wacom has won the coveted design award from Red Dot for two of its Signature products. Both the Signature Pad STU-530 and the Signature Display DTU-1031 convinced the 40 member expert panel of their outstanding product design, beating off competition from over 4,000 other entries.
Peter Sommer, Vice President Enterprise Business, Wacom Europe GmbH commented: “We are extremely proud that two of our products have won such a prestigious and well known design award. Combining technological innovation with outstanding design, our Signature products provide customers with a robust and trustworthy way to collect legally binding signatures and information. Handling is easy and ergonomic and most importantly the pads and displays feel natural to those using them. Dedicated to our customers specific needs, their innovative design means they can easily be integrated into POS solutions and counters.”
Signature Pad STU-530
The STU-530 supports digital business workflows that need to capture handwritten signatures to authorise or confirm business processes. It is ideal for POS in banks or retail and for any company requiring a display with minimal footprint and innovative design. The thin, low-profile design, flat surface and attractive matted anthracite colour makes the STU-530 suitable for discreet integration at the counter where a user can easily view or fill in full size documents and sign them digitally. Combined with the light, slim pen, writing feels as close to analogue pen and paper as possible. The 5’’ high resolution colour LCD screen and the hardened glass surface complete the high-quality look and feel of the pad.
Signature Display DTU-1031
The award-winning design of the DTU-1031 is unique. Its combination of a high-resolution colour display with a small footprint makes it suitable for any counter or POS. The DTU-1031 features a minimalistic design with high quality materials and metallic colours that correspond to the display colours of the Wacom pen.
The 7th July is awards night for Red Dot, in Essen, Germany, where Wacom will be presented with its award. The Red Dot Design Museum in Essen will also be opened for four weeks for a public showcase of around 2,000 exhibits, including the Wacom signature pads and displays. This is the largest exhibition of contemporary designs worldwide.
