Hoover H-FREE 500 wins a Red Dot Award

Hoover H-FREE 500 is among the winners of the Product design 2020 section of the world-famous Red Dot Award that every year gathers more than 18,000 entries from design professionals, companies and organizations from more than 70 countries.

Considered the most important and renowned design accolade, The Red Dot Award: Product Design, whose origins date back to 1955, appraises the best products created every year through an International Jury of around 40 members that this year evaluated more than 6,500 products.

H-FREE 500 is a compact, lightweight and functional cordless stick with a slim silhouette and 1.5 kg weight in handheld mode. It is also able to reach every corner of the house with extraordinary cleaning performance.

Moreover, the height of only 69 cm in storage mode means the vacuum can be stored in the smallest of spaces. Plus, it can stand up without support thanks to its ‘parking mode’. 

H-FREE 500 is a product that combines reduced dimensions, efficiency and corded performance*: the H-LAB brushless motor provides consistent power output with outstanding suction to pick up all fine dust, larger debris, hair and pet hair. This is combined with a run time of up-to 40 minutes, powered by a lithium battery.

With the H-FREE 500, everything is accessible and easy to reach, thanks to the 3-in-1 accessory stored on board. 

A cleaning experience designed to always have outstanding performance, the H-FREE 500 Is available in four SKUs; H-FREE 500, H-FREE 500 Pets, H-FREE 500 Energy and H-FREE 500 Pets Energy. 

Catrin Davies, Senior Product Manager, UK & ROI at Hoover SDA, said: “The H-FREE 500 is a small and powerful vacuum cleaner with modern technology and neat aesthetics that make it stand out in a crowded market. 

“People’s vacuuming habits have changed drastically over the last decade, with people ‘hoovering’ little and often and the H-FREE 500 delivers corded performance in a compact chassis. 

“A Red Dot Award is the epitome of distinctive design and it’s a worthy addition to the H-FREE 500’s growing list of accolades.”
Hoover H-FREE 500 and the other laureates will be celebrated at the award ceremony of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020, taking place in Essen, Germany, on 22 June 2020.

The award-winning designs will also be showcased in the Red Dot Design Museums, in the online presentation in the Red Dot Design Yearbook and in other initiatives of Red Dot, that combines different online portals, several museums (Essen in Germany, Singapore and Xiamen in China) and global exhibitions under its brand roof.
