The red dot is a symbol of innovation, functionality and quality. In this year's competition 4,815 contributions from nearly two thousand manufacturers and 53 countries were evaluated.

The new work gloves are part of a new concept from Snickers Workwear that revolutionizes the way to sell and by work gloves. Left & Right Gloves are sold one by one, as the gloves often are worn out in different ways and at different times. One glove is almost always used up before the other that can often be whole. Making it is unnecessary to replace both gloves. Left & Right Gloves also looks at the different needs left and right hands have. Different work tasks also set various demands on left and right hands gloves, such as the protection and dexterity.

- When we decided to develop new work gloves for increasingly demanding craftsmen, we decided to start with a thorough analysis of how craftsmen work and use gloves, says Cecilia Bergsten, Product Developer at Hultafors Group. In this way, we've developed a unique fit and optimum performance for every task. That the world's most prominent designers also like the design is really gratifying, says Cecilia Bergsten.
