The Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen is reportedly considered one of the world’s top three design competitions, alongside the German iF DESIGN AWARD and the U.S. International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA).

Hyundai Transys’ future mobility concept seat won the Red Dot Design Award in the Design Concept category under Mobility & Transportation.

The seat features a material made from recycled leather and regenerated PET yarn, with a weaving technique applied to the bolster area, utilising leftover leather scraps to minimise leather waste.

Seo Seung-woo, Seat Division Director at Hyundai Transys, said: “Hyundai Transys’ continuous efforts in developing human and nature-friendly seats have been recognised by the Red Dot Design Award.

“We will continue introducing sustainable seats that enhance customer convenience and take the lead in realising environmental values.”
