Award-winning! Salamander wins German Design Award
With its myWindow_Strategy, Salamander is defining the window as a tangible, attractive and sustainable design product that is stylishly showcased as a link between the facade of a building and the design of the home interior. Following this approach, this was the first time Salamander applied for one of the most important and renowned design competitions in Germany, the German Design Award, with its product innovation "Greta® – the better window". In the category "Excellent Product Design – Eco Design", Salamander was able to convince the jury that the Greta® window is the design project of a sustainable future.
Türkheim - Germany, 08/12/2021. The German Design Award, which is presented once a year by the German Design Council, distinguishes innovative projects that provide answers to the challenges of our time with high claims of design and sustainability, that take design to the next level and fulfil the highest customer claims.
In consideration of the overall concept, innovation strength, durability, market maturity, sustainability, ecological quality and product aesthetics, Salamander emerged as the winner with the Greta® window by the prestigious international jury.
With the innovative and sustainable product Greta®, Salamander combines long-standing experience in window development, maximum design standards and consistent sustainability. An innovative formula that makes full use of high-quality window recycling materials creates a unique, natural texture featuring a concrete aesthetic. Thanks to its modern, open-pored surface, Greta® additionally is a haptic experience. Greta® is manufactured from 100% renewable energies, using the company's own hydroelectric power plants, PV systems and green electricity.
"We are proud that we were able to convince the jury with our innovative product Greta®. This was an outstanding team achievement, which once again shows that we are on the right track with our strategy programme," emphasises Co-CEO Götz Schmiedeknecht proudly.
