Gagarin have been awarded the much-coveted Red Dot as part of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2016, the globally renowned design competition for  the exhibition "Powering the Future". 

In jury sessions that lasted several days, the 26 experts on the Red Dot jury evaluated each of the large number of entries individually, live and on site. This year designers and companies from a total of 46 countries take part in the award.

The exhibition is located in one of Iceland´s oldest hydro stations, Ljósafossstöð. The exhibition was designed and fabricated on the 50th anniversary of Landsvirkjun, the National Power Company of Iceland. 

Once again we thank Landsvirkjun for this great cooperation and for being so forward thinking. The exhibition was designed by Gagarín in collaboration with Tvíhorf Architects.
