Thanks to its innovative and paradoxical design, the Gibus Duck folding arm awning wins the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017. An important recognition for the product made in collaboration with the Milanese design firm Meneghello e Paolelli, which succeeded in standing out from the rest and getting noticed in a competition that involved participants from over 50 countries. 

The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the most reputable assessment processes which gives awards for good design and innovation. Every product that is presented in this competition is evaluated individually by a panel of international and independent experts. For this reason, at Gibus we are extremely proud to have received this award and to be able to share our satisfaction with you.

Duck: Thanks to the design created by the Meneghello e Paolelli design firm in Milan, this folding arm awning stands out for its strong personality. The rounded lines are pleasing to the eye and when you activate the automatic opening and closing of the awning, it appears to have a life of its own. The round and compact cassette, in powder coated extruded aluminium, protects the fabric and guarantees a longer life and less exposure to the elements. Duck, with its perfect combination of functionality and design, adapts to any environment, thereby enhancing it.
