WMF Quadro wins German Design Award in “Excellent Product Design” category17/01/2019
Birkenfeld - For the product managers at WMF Professional, self-explanatory, emotional, functional, long-lasting and high-quality attributes are among the key elements of successful design. The specialist jury of the German Design Award agreed with them and awarded the “WMF Quadro” modular buffet system in the “Excellent Product Design 2019” category. The German Design Council, which gave out the awards, was especially impressed by the intelligent arrangement in layers, significantly increasing the usable space at the buffet. The different modules in the comprehensive collection can be quickly and easily combined and customised for every occasion in a few simple moves. The jury also enjoyed the combination of stainless steel, glass, wood and porcelain and the clear lines of the design. “The design selected gives the multifunctional system an elegant, quality look and provides the perfect backdrop for the food presented on it,” explained the experts.
The German Design Council gives out its prestigious international premier prize “German Design Award” every year. The aim is to showcase and publicly honour unique design trends. As one of the most famous design competitions in the world, it rewards outstanding design quality in a number of categories. The prize-winners are decided during a two-day meeting of the jury made up of design connoisseurs from science, academia and business and the design industry.
A buffet perfect for the restaurant industry
Functionality and flexibility are key for WMF Quadro, as no two buffets are the same. Cooling, stacking, combining and serving on multiple levels, everything must be quick and seamless. In order to guarantee this, precision timing with perfect-fit transitions are essential. WMF Quadro fulfils this requirement with a range of inserts in GN format, such as porcelain bowls, plates made from different materials and woven-look baskets. Themed culinary islands can be set up with different attachments, bridges and serving stands. The LEDlight adapters provide an additional optical highlight. These can be fitted on the frames of the modules and provide the desired mood with LEDlight units in various dimmable light colours.
