On 8th of February 2019, the German Design Award ceremony 2019 took place as part of Ambiente in Frankfurt. With over 1300 guests from politics, business, design and press, the award is one of the most important design events of the year.
We are very pleased to get the German Design Award in Gold for the conference and visitor chair Metrik manufactured by Wilkhahn and designed by whiteID Integrated Design. The “Gold” award stands for excellence in international design and is awarded only to the best of the best.
The jury of the German Design Award 2019 is made up of design experts from business, teaching and science as well as the design industry. All jury members are recognized capacities in their fields.
Therefore, we are particularly proud of jury statement for this award: „What makes the Metrik such a special chair is that it innovatively combines the concepts of a monobloc and a cantilever chair innovatively into a single new product, and does so with consummate artistry. The result is a fascinating hybrid product made of two materials and whose uniquely complex design language creates a marvellously sculptural and graphic effect. A sensationally beautiful chair – and it’s even stackable! An absolutely timeless design that fits in with a broad range of decors and environments.“
We thank the jury of the German Design Award for the prize and Wilkhahn for their cooperation and the confidence!
