German Design Award 2015
defortec awarded with the “prize of prizes”.
The design of the layflat book binding machine smartliner240 by Palamides has been awarded for the third time. After the iF product design award 2014 and the Focus Open 2014, we now have received a Special Mention at the German Design Award for this development. This award, known also as the "prize of prizes" enjoys a special reputation in the industry and is organized annually by the German Design Council.
In addition to the awards in the categories, a "Special Mention" is a work that reveals particularly successful design aspects and handling solutions. During the jury process these products have received the most points, but have been put underneath the winner-products of the respective category. By the Special Mention the company is given a marketing tool to the hand, to communicate the high quality of the product to customers and trade.
The German Design Award enjoys an excellent reputation and is one of the most famous international design awards, as the German Design Council is one of the leading international centers of excellence for design. We are very excited about this award because capital goods are rarely rewarded with this design award. In this moment specials thanks to Palamides for their trust and the successful and pleasant cooperation.
