Eye-catching, comfortable and functional - Xilium, LinkUP and Denuo, three new products from our offer were awarded German Design Awards 2019. Premium armchairs series 8600 Lupino by Kusch+Co, a company which joined our Group last month, is among the winners of the Award, as well. This confirms once again that our office furniture perfectly combines design and ergonomics.
German Design Award is one of the most prestigious awards in the world of design. In choosing winners, the international panel of judges is focused on "pioneering solutions that contribute to a change in the world of design". In this year's edition, these criteria were met by three products from our portfolio: the Xilium chair and the LinkUP line of soft seating, which won the main prize, as well as the Denuo chair which was awarded a special mention.
"A solidly made office chair that combines ergonomics, functionality and modern elegance" reads a statement in support of the award for the Xilium chair designed by Martin Ballendat. The judges paid particular attention to the chair’s systems such as duo back and x-move, which provide the user with freedom of movement and allow for the chair to be optimally adjusted, regardless of the height, weight or work style of the user.
The second winner – the LinkUP line of soft seating designed by Mac Stopa won experts' recognition for the combination of modern design with top quality materials. The resulting armchairs and chaise longues, which evoke an air of homely warmth, are a perfect fit for relaxation zones in the office.
As for the Denuo chair by Daniel Figueroa, the last of the distinguished products, its advanced ergonomics "dressed" in a dynamic shape, and further emphasized with a personalized colour palette were recognised as its biggest strength. These features gave it a special mention in the competition.
The triple victory at German Design Award 2019 is yet another proof over the recent years of the high design quality of solutions provided by us. Combining high-quality design with utmost care for ergonomic features appears to be the key to our success in capturing an ever greater share of the office furniture market.
