It’s Break the winner of the Red Dot award in the category Fashion Design 2018. From the excellence collection, Break is a combination of the two natural materials stone and wood, with a highly precise two-tone finish. The model also incorporates the company’s innovative Flexlock hinge technology. The new hinge made of wood and natural rubber enables movement in all directions, the layered structure of the slate giving each section of stone a living appearance.

The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back to 1955 and determines the best products created each year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, a jury comprising roughly 40 members assessed the products individually based on the original. The strict judging criteria, which include level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability, provide a frame of reference which the jurors then complement with their own expertise.
