Excella® Blade nominated for the German Design Award

Excella® Blade nominated for the German Design Award 23 June 2015

YKK Excella® Blade has been nominated for the 2016 German Design Award – Excellent Product Design.

Before being considered by the German Design Council, a product must have received at least one other international design award and the YKK Excella® Blade met this criterion when YKK was awarded the 2015 Red Dot Award earlier this year.

The German Design Award is the international premium prize of the German Design Council. Every year, top-quality submissions from product and communications design are awarded, all of which are in their own way ground-breaking in the international design landscape. The German Design Award, started in 2012, is already one of the best-known design competitions in the world and is held in high regard well beyond professional circles.

Due to rigorous screening and the level of competition, the German Design Award is referred to as “The Award of Awards.”  The competition places the highest demands on the evaluation of its prize winners; the unique nomination process ensures that only those products and communication design achievements which stand out with proven design quality are invited to participate.

Notification of the Jury’s decision will be made in September 2015
