HERZLIYA, Israel, March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The RealBarrow, by Keter Plastic, has been awarded the Red Dot Design Award: Product Design 2011, one of the most renowned international product competitions. This year, designers and companies from 60 countries entered 4,433 products in the red dot award. The recent award, marks Keter's receipt of the "red dot" seal of quality for high design, for the second year in a row.
The RealBarrow, is the first heavy-duty work wagon to combine two positions: the archetype classic wheelbarrow shape together with the L shape "bulldozer" shovel.
The bulldozer shovel uses a reinforced metal edge to help maximize the product performance. This unique combination creates a functional wheelbarrow, which gets a wide range of garden and other outdoor chores done with less effort than ever before.
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, the initiator of the red dot design award said "As always, our jury cast a very careful eye over the products submitted. Design quality has asserted itself clearly in the judging process, with genuine and new creative solutions also being rewarded. Both of these criteria are not just yardsticks for good design, but also for the potential for success on the market."
