Red Dot Award Best Product for BE WTR AQTiV ONE

Cool news for BE WTR, the innovative, sustainable water brand from Lausanne in Switzerland: its BE WTR AQTiV ONE water system wins the Red Dot Award for best product design!

In June, BE WTR received the prestigious Red Dot Award for Best Product Design in the “Kitchen taps & sinks” category with its water system BE WTR AQTiV ONE. This recognition highlights the company’s commitment to excellence in design and innovation, and reinforces the position as a disruptive, premium, sustainable water brand.


The Red Dot Award is one of the most renowned design competitions worldwide, celebrating outstanding achievements in product design, communication design, and design concepts.

The esteemed jury, comprised of international experts, recognizes the BE WTR AQTiV ONE for its exceptional design, user-centric features, and cutting-edge technology.

BE WTR’s Founder & CEO Mike Hecker:

“We are thrilled to receive the Red Dot Award for Best Product Design, which recognizes our dedication to push the boundaries of innovation and design excellence. This award is a testament to the creative vision of our talented teams. BE WTR AQTiV represents a breakthrough in sustainable quality hydration based on years of research, development and meticulous attention to detail, so we are proud to launch it across our home, restaurants and offices channels.”

Designed by Lausanne based Antoine Cahen, known for his iconic design contributions to the Nespresso brand, the BE WTR AQTiV ONE represents a true paradigm shift in water hydration. The sleek and minimalist, long lasting design, combined with the advanced water enhancing (activation) technology, sets new standards for product design, user experience and water taste.


The BE WTR AQTiV ONE boasts two patented innovations that further distinguish it from any other products in the market.

The first patent is for the innovative technology that enhances aeration and oxygenation. Inspired by nature, where water flows fresh and encounters air. This innovation results in exceptional water mouthfeel with improved taste and smoother texture making tap water fresher and tastier.

The second patent is for the lever mechanism, meticulously engineered to provide both still and sparkling water seamlessly. This patent underscores BE WTR’s commitment to deliver products that not only excel in design, but also provide a truly intuitive and enjoyable user experience.
