Poggenpohl Design Center Mailand 2016

Award-winning theme units

Leading design prizes for +STAGE from Poggenpohl

In developing +STAGE, Poggenpohl is consistently embracing the changing demands on the home environment. Flexibility and distinctiveness are becoming increasingly important; the individual functional areas dissociate to form separate elements. +STAGE very deliberately focuses on modern living, concentrating on all that is essential and valuable within home life while offering a maximum in terms of individuality.

The luxury kitchen manufacturer from Herford, Poggenpohl, has been awarded not just one but two major design prizes for the highly functional theme units +STAGE. The German Design Award 2017 "Special Mention" in addition to the Plus X Award 2016.

The German Design Award is the international premium prize of the German Design Council. Based on a unique nomination procedure, only products that demonstrably excel by their creative quality are allowed to take part. Poggenpohl received the German Design Award 2017 "Special Mention" in the "Kitchen" category. The "Special Mention" title is awarded to works with a design that represents particularly accomplished solutions and details and therefore honours the major commitment of companies and designers.

The Plus X Award is the world's leading prize for innovation for technology, sport and lifestyle. It was initiated as a project for consolidating and protecting brands and the trade and has already existed for more than 14 years. Poggenpohl received the Plus X Award 2016 for +STAGE in the categories of innovation, high quality, design and functionality.
