German Design Award 2019 – We belong to the proud winners!

The sophisticated concept of our premium brand “PIVOT – by Gebrüder Munzert” convinced the experts of the German Design Award. “Beside the amazingly inventive variety, this top quality fabric from Germany is noticeable for its superior craftsmanship that is visible in every detail – and this most striking when one touches the fabric”, argues the German Design Council.
Head of design, Hannes Neubert, considers this prestigious award as affirmation of the high design standard he and his team constantly work at. “PIVOT thrives by the constant enhancement of the initial concept idea. The German Design Award inspires the ambition for me and my team to constantly come up with new and inventive fabric developments.”

Tobias Batrla, Designer

The textile “Origami” technique is reminiscent of Japanese paper-folding culture and was developed by textile designer Tobias Batrla one of Gebr. Munzert’s in-house creative team. On highly specialised Jacquard looms, a creative fabric which is novel in its form is made from innovative flameretardant yarns. The multidimensionality and stability of “Origami” offer an intelligent and design-oriented solution for many fields of application, such as window decoration, wall coverings, partitions, privacy shields, etc.

Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of red dot, pointed out that especially today, a high level of competence in design and economic success go hand in hand: “The winners of the red dot award: product design 2013 are the protagonists of a highly-developed design culture and design industry. Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish well-designed products from one another. Characteristic features can often only be seen by taking a closer look at the details. Those creations, however, which comply with the international red dot jury’s high standards, will stand out from the mass of products and compete successfully in the global market.”

Product development „Hologram“

Hannes Neubert has managed to transfer “hologram technology” onto a woven fabric for the very first time with the Holo Collection. The product changes its design and colour, depending where the viewer is standing. Using a specially developed relief-like weaving technique and the fibre-dependent imprecision of the pile height, there arises an atmospheric interplay of overlapping images, which create the charm of this design, thanks to their blurred nature.
