May 2019 – Fabian Kölliker, Head of Group Marketing at SWISS KRONO Group, together with furniture designer Thilo Römer, were awarded the “High Product Quality” distinction for the “Agile Cell” furniture item made from SWISSCDF at the interzum award: intelligent material & design 2019 on Monday evening (May 20).
The world of work is changing faster than ever before. Open work spaces, new work concepts, and co-working spaces are just a few of the many current trends. “The guiding principle was to build a piece of furniture that would enable a very high degree of multi-functionality with just a few parts,” says Thilo Römer, who designed the Agile Cell.
Agile Cell is a modular piece of office furniture on wheels that helps users tailor rooms and workspaces to their individual needs. It has a wide range of applications – as a coat rack for reception areas, as a room divider, as a flipchart or whiteboard, as a silent work station, and much more besides. The individual parts can be assembled without tools. All accessories are made of the same material for a harmonious appearance.
SWISSCDF is a compact, black-dyed fiberboard (> 1,000 kg/m3), with high density and aesthetic appeal to make products both incredibly stable and visually attractive. “With this piece of office furniture, we want to demonstrate the potential of SWISSCDF,” says Fabian Kölliker, Head of Group Marketing at SWISS KRONO Group. “The Compact Density Fiberboard (CDF) has the ruggedness and versatility that lends furniture ultimate flexibility.”
The entire decor range of the “One World Swiss Collection” from SWISS KRONO is available for coating SWISSCDF panels. In this case it is the CamuStyle TX decor, which was awarded the German Design Award 2019.
The interzum award: intelligent material & design honors the best products in the international furniture supply industry. Participation in the design competition is reserved for interzum exhibitors. An expert panel evaluates all entries based on their design, functional quality and innovative potential. The “High Product Quality” award is given for special design performance in form and function. The presentation of the Agile Cell can be found in the
