ICONIC AWARD for design grills made of glass

ICONIC AWARD for design grills made of glass

The new SHAPE design grill collection by FRÄNKISCHE has been ranked 'Best of Best' in the "ICONIC AWARDS 2016: Interior Innovation" competition. The ventilation grills made of glass from the profi-air starline collection were awarded first prize in the building fixtures category by an independent expert jury of the German Design Council.

"We have designed profi-air starline to provide our customers with a ventilation grill to match each and every interior style, thus giving yet another exquisite touch to heat recovery ventilation (HRV) in both existing and new buildings. The fact that our design grills that are made from glass, a new material, have won the ICONIC AWARD is a great honour for us," says Jürgen Sum, Head of Sales Germany. The new profi-air starline combines premium design and cutting-edge technology:

sieger design agency has created motifs for these practical yet stylish ventilation grills for FRÄNKISCHE. Glass has been used for the first time as a material for ventilation grills in the prize-winning SHAPE star-line collection. Four glass variants of the design grills are available in the "Glass White Pure" colour shade: the square COMPACT, the rectangular BUSINESS, the oval STYLE as well as the round CIRCLE. Easy-to-install design grills are a perfect match to the profi-air ventilation system – a complete heat recovery ventilation (HRV) package with a pipe system consisting of classic round pipes as well as flat tunnel pipes, highly efficient ventilation units coupled with an extensive range of accessories.

The new "ICONIC AWARDS: Interior Innovation" prize of the German Design Council sees its aim in honouring innovative excellence throughout all product areas of this sector. In the competition that was based on the former Interior Innovation Award, the focus is on connecting the realms of architecture and furnishings. The German Design Council supports the industry in all design-related matters and is one of the world's leading centres of excellence for conveying holistic design.
