The Red Dot Jury has made its decision: the IRIScan™ Desk Pro emerged victorious from the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 and won a Red Dot for its good design quality. This means that IRIS is one of the winners in the world’s most renowned design competition!
With the IRIScan™ Desk Pro, scan any type of document or books – contracts, invoices, receipts, bills, plans, business cards and even plastic cards like identity cards, insurance cards, credit cards… without cutting or damaging them!
This document camera scanner will also help to save time and effort, and make it an easy job by scanning not only books or magazines but all types of content restrained in binders, spirals or files. Just flip the page and scan with the automatic page detection function.
Because size matters: with the IRIScan™ Desk 5 Pro no one will regret the typical flatbed limitations. Its user will be able to capture up to any A3 sized documents. Simply position the document on the A3 scan mat and press scan.

With their designs, the award winners are setting new standards in their industry. I wish to congratulate them most sincerely on their success,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.
Detailed evaluation of the products entered
The Red Dot Award: Product Design offers designers and manufacturers from all over the world a platform for assessing their products. In 2020, designers and companies from 60 countries entered more than 6,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and has been convening for around 65 years in order to select the year’s best designs.
The adjudication process lasts several days and is based on two essential criteria: The jurors test all of the entries in order to assess not just the aesthetic but also the materials selected, the level of craftsmanship, the surface structure, ergonomics and functionality. After intensive discussions, they make a decision on the design quality of the products. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, only the best designs receive an award.
