Two products of SCHLEGEL have been awarded with the "German Design Award 2022": the e-stop with the ball-shaped head received the title "Winner" for its extraordinary design, and the illuminated RFID cardholder got the "Special Mention".
The international jury evaluated our products and rated them as extraordinary. The jury's statement to the FRPKVKOO e-stop says, "The e-stop head of SCHLEGEL surprises with a ball-shaped design which makes it different to their competitors' products." In addition, the ball-shaped head has a pleasant haptics, which is created by a complex eroding procedure. Besides its special design, the e-stop offers a short mounting depth of 9.2 mm. The "German Design Award" is the second award for the ball-shaped e-stop. Previously, it has been awarded with the Red Dot Award.
The RFID cardholder, also classified in the category "Industry", got the title "Special Mention". The cardholder convinces by the symbiosis of design and practicality. The illumination is a visual accessory and information indicator at the same time. The change of colour signalises the activation of the system. Thanks to its robustness, the RFID cardholder can be used in various workplace environments, which shows the focus on practicality while considering the aesthetic demand.
The "German Design Award" honour is given for innovative products and projects. The "German Design Council", founded in 1953 by initiative of the German Bundestag, bestows the German Design Award. The German Design Council's letter of congratulations reads, „Wer sich hier gegen die hochkarätige Konkurrenz durchsetzt, hat erfolgreich bewiesen, zu den Besten zu gehören." (Meaning: Anyone who prevails over the top-class competition has proven to be among the best.)
"We are very happy that we were able to surprise and convince the design experts with our products again," says SCHLEGEL's managing director Christoph Schlegel. Our company has already won more than 100 national and international design awards. SCHLEGEL participated multiple times in the design competition for the "German Design Award" and received the award twice: for the KOMBITAST-R-JUWEL series in 2014 and for the enclosure series proboxx in 2021.
