Innovative, functional and ingenious design: German Innovation Award 2021 and IF Design Award 2021 for the DURABLE monitor mounts
Iserlohn, 18/05/2021 An ‘exceptional innovative achievement’ and a ‘successful marriage of form and functionality’ – called to assess DURABLE’s monitor stands, both the German Design Council and the jury of the iF Design Award were full of praise. Having emerged as winner of the German Innovation Awards 2021 and with a ‘Special Mention’ from the jury of the 2021 iF Design Awards, our monitor stands currently count no fewer than five different prestigious awards and certificates to their name. Last year, they won not only the Iconic Award and the German Design Award, but also received an IGR Certificate for their contribution to occupational health and ergonomics. ‘Our monitor stands combine functionality with aesthetic appeal and enable users to work on their screens more ergonomically and more efficiently’, explains Martina Heiland, head of DURABLE’s PR. ‘Users attest to the all-round success of our design – and so do juries of experts.’
The functional design elements of the award-winning DURABLE monitor mounts make working with a screen more ergonomic. The elegant, infinitely adjustable mechanical elements allow each user to adjust the height, angle and distance of the monitor to fit their individual needs.
The German Innovation Award assesses products and solutions from all industries. The focus is on user-friendly, innovative designs that benefit people in unprecedented ways. It’s presented by the German Design Council, Germany’s leading authority for design and brands.
The winners of the 2021 iF Design Award were chosen by a jury consisting of 98 international experts, who first had to assess a total of 9,059 submissions. The jury not only gave marks for originality, functionality and innovativeness, but also for the degree to which the products benefit workplaces, society and the environment at large.
