Fun Factory has won a Red Dot Product Design Award for its G5 vibrator range. The technology-packed vibes are made from medical grade silicone and feature a new optimised interior called FlexiFun. According to Fun Factory, this strengthens the silicone body whilst making it extra flexible too, enabling it to be used in a variety of positions. The G5 features include the three Press Fun To Play buttons, which allow the user to choose between the 12 different vibration programs, a battery level display, key lock, and QuickStop – which turns the vibe off in an instant, should the situation demand it.
The latest G5 models are Miss Bi and Lady Bi [left in picture], and they join the already established Patchy Paul, Tiger, Big Boss, and Moody. Around 5,200 products were submitted for Red Dot: Product Design evaluation this year and the winners were chosen by 41 experts from around the world. The winners will receive their awards during a glamorous awards ceremony in July in Germany in front of around 1,200 guests. All award-winning products will be showcased in the Design On Stage exhibition in the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen for four weeks, before becoming part of the permanent exhibition.
