Germany nominates coldblack for Design Prize

Jul '10
The Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany is the highest official German award in the area of design. Often described as the “prize of prizes”, no other design prize makes similarly high requirements of the participants. A company can only take part in the competition for the design prize when its products have already received national or international awards.

A further prerequisite for participation is nomination through the Departments of Trade and Industry of the federal states or through the Federal Ministry for Business and Technology. “The nomination has taken us totally by surprise, admits Hans U. Kohn from Schoeller Technologies. “It is an almost seamless extension to the Swiss equivalent, which we won in November 2009. However, as a Swiss company we did not anticipate this nomination.” On the product side, recognition for the “sun protection technology” is also high.

For example, in February Thoni Mara was nominated for the ISPO Brand New Award for his marathon collection; in the spring, Gustav Daiber took the Promotional Gift Award 2010 for a high-quality flexifit cap with coldblack finish and in April mountain sports pants from Vaude were honoured with the German Outdoor magazine's Editor's Choice Award.

Eagerly awaited now is the decision of the high profile jury of The Design Prize at the end of the year. Among the prize winners in the last few years were the light designer Ingo Maurer and companies such as Audi, BMW, Bulthaup, Ruckstuhl and Brad Pitt's “Pink Project” for the reconstruction of New Orleans.

coldblack is suitable for a wide range of application fields which includes fashion, functional clothing and textiles for the outdoor area (such as sun blinds or covers for garden furniture). The coldblack finishing technology was developed by Schoeller Technologies AG and Clariant International Ltd. and launched in July 2008.
