Focus Open 2014 - Special Mention

Focus Open 2014 - Smartliner240 awarded with Special Mention

We are pleased that the Layflat bookbinding machine by Palamides received another design award. This time it is awarded by the Design Center Baden-Württemberg which evalutates  the design quality, functionality, innovation contents as well as the ergonomics and usability aspects. Intention of the competition is to identify trends in design scene and tracing innovative and progressive solutions. A further evidence for our work quality due to industrial plants that are rarely honoured  with the Focus Open Award.

The Focus Open - the International Design Award Baden Württemberg - is an integral part of the competitive landscape in Germany. Designers from around the world submit annually their most innovative products and concept solutions and face the competition for outstanding and sustainable design. The prestigious design award enjoys high reputation at home and abroad and is particularly appreciated for its reliability and non-commercial orientation.

The winning products will be awarded as part of a remarkable event in the cultural center of Ludwigsburg. Under the leadership of Christiane Nicolaus, Director of the Design Center Stuttgart , the FocusGold and Focus Silver will be awarded to the product managers. A special highlight will be the presentation of the Mia Seeger Prize 2014. This prestigious award honors young designers and is organized by the Mia Seeger Foundation.
