ICONIC AWARDS 2023: Innovative Interior

ICONIC AWARDS 2023: Innovative Interior

The new Artverum magnetic glass boards have been declared “winner”, no less, in the “Product Design Office and Workplace” category of the “Iconic Awards 2023: Innovative Interior”.

The Artverum magnetic glass boards combine elegant design with outstanding functionality. Artverum is well-loved both as an elegant item of décor and as a practical tool for recording thoughts and prioritising tasks. In the stylish pastel shades of yellow, blue, rosé, mint and delicate grey, the new boards in this brand are bound to impress with their unusual features. They are magnetic, can be written on and are easy to wipe clean, with a new matt glass surface that makes them ideal for difficult lighting conditions. Even in direct sunlight, there is practically no reflection. Their ingenious mounting fittings make them appear to “float” freely in front of the wall. What’s more, the high product quality is proving ever more popular with customers: the 4 mm thick safety glass is TUEV and GS-approved, and comes with a 25-year guarantee on the glass surface. Artverum magnetic glass boards are available in a wide range of formats, colours and designs.

Red Dot Award Product Design 2022
Reddot Award für Conceptum Nature Edition

Red Dot Award Product Design 2022

Once again, a SIGEL product has received the coveted Red Dot Award for Product Design. The Conceptum Nature Edition with its real bamboo cover and FSC®-certified paper impressed the jury of this prestigious design competition.

“The choice of material and the design come together in the Conceptum Nature Edition to create a harmonious look, along with an unmistakable surface feel that is bound to impress,” was the jury’s verdict. It is the material that makes the Conceptum Nature Edition truly special. A real wood coating conveys a sense of naturalness and sustainability. This applies equally to the spiral notepad and the hardcover and softcover versions of the notebook. The latter is extremely pliable, despite the wood coating on the cover. Likewise, the paper used for the inner pages, originating from sustainable forest sources, is a persuasive argument for consumers who like to shop ethically.

The award for the Conceptum Nature Edition is further confirmation that SIGEL always aspires to produce the best possible design. In 2019, the flexible office board system Meet up won this award, and in 2021 it was the innovative Conceptum flex business organiser. These are just two more of the numerous design awards that SIGEL has won.

Iconic Awards 2020 – Innovative Interior

The innovative, new product group from SIGEL was awarded in the "Office and Workplace" category. Meet up, the mobile board system for agile and creative work, received the "Selection" label.

The Iconic Award is an interior award that is only given to products that meet certain criteria. The SIGEL innovations convinced the internationally renowned jury according to the design-specific characteristics of design quality, ergonomics and degree of innovation, but also according to functional properties such as utility value, durability and safety. Due to its industry-specific focus on the interior, the Iconic Award 2020: Innovative Interior counts as one of the smaller design awards, but with its high international relevance it is considered a trend barometer. True to the motto "class instead of mass", 161 awards were presented this year from over 540 entries from a total of 20 countries.

Red Dot Design Award 2019

Meet up, the mobile whiteboard system, won in the “Product Design” category. The international Red Dot design competition is run by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen e.V. in Germany, which chooses the best products of the year.

Designers and manufacturers from around the world submit their products and an international panel of experts rate the submissions based on criteria such as degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics, longevity and environmental friendliness.

In 2019 the jurors received 5,500 submissions. The coveted “Red Dot” award is an internationally renowned hallmark of outstanding design quality. SIGEL presented an exceptional new product: Meet up, the versatile, mobile complete board system. Meet up can be carried or rotated and pushed around in a stand, giving its users complete freedom when it comes to teamwork and organisation.

German Design Award 2017 – Special Mention and Nomination

This is the fifth time in a row that the Artverum magnetic glass boards and the Conceptum notebooks & planners have impressed the judges of the German Design Award. These two product groups stood out among a total of 4,058 submissions in 27 categories.

With just under 700 more submissions than in the previous year, the German Design Award continues to reinforce its significance among the many international design competitions.

Artverum received a “Special Mention” in the “Office Furniture” category for its outstanding design quality. The winning products include the classy stone-cut designs “Black Marble” and “Green Mineral”, the red boards in the practical 60 x 40 cm and 100 x 65 cm formats, along with the small, colourful C5 magnets. Other awards went to the “World Map” design board in its stylish stone look, the four classy metallic boards, the round and hexagonal boards, the Artverum mirror, the berry red boards and the coloured C20 magnets.

The Conceptum notebooks & planners received the commendation of “Nominee” in the “Books & Calendars” category. Once again, this shows that these black hardcover books with the popular Softwave surface are always well-received: the commendation went to the notebook in the practical tablet format, the 18-month planner and the weekly planner with the vertical layout. The hardcover planner “Colour” collection for 2017 with its fresh colours in a classy metallic finish was another recipient of the “Nominee” commendation. The jury also commended the softcover notebooks & planners for 2017, which come with the classy Softwave surface in elegant business shades.

German Design Award 2015 – Nominee

  • Artverum magnetic glass boards: This year’s jury chose the magnetic glass board in the “White Stone” design as a “Nominee”. “White Stone” reflects the look of a stylish white loft conversion, combining a naturally appealing design with polished tempered glass. It adds an urban touch to the interior décor of the room. “Anyone nominated for the German Design Award has demonstrated great expertise in the field of design,” says the German Design Council, the organisation behind the German Design Award. This is because “a nomination is the only way to get the opportunity to compete and measure your products against the best on the design scene. In other words, just participating in the German Design Award is a commendation in itself for companies and designers.”
  • Artetempus designer wall clocks: These wall clocks make a contemporary design statement in any room. The jury of the German Design Award 2015 agreed, and awarded the designer wall clocks the commendation of “Nominee”. Aesthetically pleasing and functional, remarkable due to the minimalist details and effective combination of materials, all 14 designer wall clocks clearly express their superb quality. Four collections from elegant and sporty to unfussy and modern; four statement collections with expressive designs.
