Product development “Origami”
The company Gebr. Munzert GmbH & Co. KG delights the 37-member Red Dot Award: product design 2013 jury of experts with the product development “Origami” and wins the award “best of the best” among 4,662 products of international designers. By awarding one of the world’s most renowned design prizes, the jury honours the company’s creativity. The prize was be officially awarded during the Red Dot gala in Essen on 1 July 2013.
“I am fascinated by the way a century-old form of design merges with new technology to create a highly contemporary, luxurious fabric.”
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.”

“BLUE DROP Best Innovation award ’13” for the product “Origami”
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.
