    ESI Wins International Red Dot Award for KataTM Monitor Arm

    Prestigious Award for Innovative Product Design

    Phoenix, AZ, May 2020 - Kata™, a best-selling monitor arm series by ESI, was announced as a winner of the acclaimed Red Dot Award for top quality and groundbreaking design in the Product category. Since 1955, the Red Dot Product Design Award has been recognized internationally as a seal of quality, distinguishing only the most exceptional products. Each year, the competition receives thousands of submissions. This year, Kata was selected out of a record-breaking 6500 products from 60 countries. Assessed by a jury of 40 renowned experts, they selected those that won them over with their exceptional design quality.  The distinction “Red Dot” has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design.

    The Kata series includes more than 100 configurations in three best-selling colors – silver, black, and white – all available to ship in 48 hours.  This expansive monitor arm series offers more flexibility in configurations and options than any other monitor arm system. With add-on components available, a user can customize from one to six monitor setups to perfectly fit any workstation.

    Designed by the well-known Roger Webb Associates of London, the Kata was born out of the desire to create a monitor arm line that had a truly beautiful design with superior functionality. A video is available on the ESI website that shares the Kata design background story.  Similar to ESI’s top selling monitor arm series, the Edge and Evolve, the Kata also uses internal mechanics that are proprietary to ESI.  The proven, positive user experience and track record of the Edge and Evolve was the starting point for Kata, taking a similar solid core design into a more advanced monitor arm system.
