The BRIC organisation system from PALMBERG received the German Design Award in the segment of Excellent Product Design. The German Design Award is the international premium prize awarded by the German Design Council. Initiated in 2012, the award has meanwhile become one of the most recognised design competitions worldwide and is held in high regard far beyond specialist circles. Its goal: to identify, present and award unique design trends. Each year, top-level submissions from the field of product and communication design are awarded, all of them representing pioneering contributions to the international design landscape.
The competition places the highest demands on the evaluation of its prize winners: a special nomination process ensures that only those products and communication design achievements are invited to participate which demonstrably stand out with proven design quality.
The BRIC organisation system has been awarded the German Design Award 2018 by the German Design Council in the segment of Excellent Product Design.
With BRIC, PALMBERG has created a young, outstanding order for the workplace. The BRIC system is highly flexible and provides the classic divisions for DIN formats and office utensils. But BRIC is also close to today’s users and takes the wishes of the young office workers on board. BRIC offers straight and angled sheets to create differently sized organisation compartments. In addition, drawers can be electrified and become a charging station. Also high drawers are given a completely new possible function by big insertable boxes, which can be used for stowing briefcases or shoes. Along with many special holders for bottles, mugs and other personal utensils, steel quivers for holding upright small parts like pens, scissors and rulers can be inserted into the plastic base and expand the functionality of the system. The overall product concept was created by the designers Christiane Gebert and Thorsten Rosenstengel.
“Those who are awarded the German Design Award have managed to stand out from the crowd. Our task is to observe the ways of working continuously and to identify changes at an early stage in order to derive suitable solutions for our customers. This is why we are very pleased about the German Design Award 2018 for our organisation system BRIC”, say the managing partners Julianne Utz und Nicole Eggert.
For PALMBERG, the award presented by the German Design Council has already been the second one in succession: last year, the company received the German Design Award Special Mention 2017 for the desk system SYSTO TEC.
