lightweight.network Receives Award in the “Service” Category
The M Technology Award competition was presented for the first time at the ZOW. The relatively young lightweight.network belonging to the three companies of Egger, Hettich and Rehau received an award in the “services” category. “We’re very happy to accept this recognition at the first M Technology Awards,” said Ulrich Bühler, head of sales and marketing with the Egger Group. “The lightweight.network will pave the way for the industry and the “best service” award confirms our commitment to collaboration,” explained Norbert Streveld, Divisional Manager Furniture, Rehau AG + Co.
Platform for lightweight construction solutions
Under the name of “lightweight.network”, the three companies of Egger, Hettich and Rehau created an open development network geared toward lightweight-board construction. The objectives of their collaboration are production-ready system solutions that are tailored to manufacturing processes in the furniture industry and interior construction. The primary task pertains to developing compatible solutions in regard to hardware, chamfering, and processing technology, especially for frameless lightweight boards.
lightweight.network thus serves as a platform that allows three independently operating companies to present their lightweight construction solutions and that permits the increasing significance of lightweight materials in interior construction to be addressed. Lastly, the collaboration is also meant to benefit users and consumers. The value-added chain is to integrate all process-related companies and the network is also open to other companies wishing to join.
The “M Technology Award” is presented by the International Forum Design in cooperation with the magazine M and is celebrating its inauguration at the ZOW. Authorized submissions include innovative products developed by suppliers, designers, agencies, and importers who have been operating on the market for less than two years. Specialty retailers may also participate. The nine categories saw 62 submissions and a total of ten awards. The jurors were Elke Kaiser from the BDIA (German association of interior architects), Ruth Berktold from yes architecture, Nils Holger Moormann from Moormann Möbel GmbH (a furniture design company), Achim Nagel from TWO design, Henning Peitsmeier from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper and Rolf Warda with warda design.
