Boca Raton, FL – April 9, 2018 – Primula, known for their innovative beverageware, has announced its distinction as a Red Dot Product Design award winner for the Primula Park Pour Over Coffee Maker. This is Primula’s second consecutive Red Dot Award for Product Design.
The Red Dot award jury of around 40 independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists tested, discussed and assessed each individual product, awarding the Red Dot to products with high design quality. In total, the competition received more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries this year.
The Park Pour Over Coffee Set includes a temperature safe borosilicate glass carafe with a reusable filter and an integrated handle with a wood grain finish. The side of the glass carafe is labeled with measurements for precise coffee servings, and the mixed material design brings a modern aesthetic to the Park Pour Over Coffee set.
This set offers a complete and stylish pour over system, featuring a differentiated design with an integrated handle- a feature that other products in this category don’t offer. Primula’s design was inspired by the lack of one piece pour over coffee sets in the pour over coffee category, so Primula created an all-in-one solution for pour over coffee in a sleek, streamlined design. The borosilicate glass is temperature safe, and the included stainless steel mesh filter helps cut down on paper filter use and makes clean up a breeze.
Brian Melzer, President of Epoca International, Primula’s parent company, said, “We are honored to receive such a prestigious award for our Park Pour Over Coffee Maker. Developing innovative products to help our consumers make delicious craft beverages at home has always been Primula’s mission, and our tremendous team behind this product is world-class.”
The Primula Park Pour Over Coffee Maker is available at many fine retailers and also on the company’s website at www.primulaproducts.com.

About the Red Dot Design Award:
In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the Red Dot Design Award breaks down into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award is organised by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 1955, a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec developed the name and brand of the award. Ever since, the sought-after Red Dot award has been the revered international seal of outstanding design quality. More information is available at www.red-dot.org.
