Parador wins GOOD DESIGN Award 2019
Coesfeld, December 2019 – The story of awards for Parador continues: The Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, and the European Centre for Architecture, Art Design and Urban Sciences have now awarded the prestigious GOOD DESIGN Award 2019 to the "Open Frameworks Design Edition", which Parador developed together with star architect Hadi Teherani.
Award for "Open Frameworks Design Edition”
With the Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani last year, Parador presented a unique engineered wood flooring and laminate collection that redefines design on the floor in an innovative way. The Design Edition combines different shapes and colours to create a completely new approach to floor design, whose design limits reach into infinity: The plank elements of the engineered wood flooring and laminate range can be combined in a wide variety of ways and create space for almost unlimited design possibilities. The "Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani" has now been awarded the prestigious and internationally renowned GOOD DESIGN Award 2019 for this innovative design and technical approach.
"We are very proud that with this Design Edition we have been able to bring this globally recognised prize for product design to Coesfeld for the first time. We would like to thank the Chicago Athenaeum and the jury for recognizing the innovative approach to floor design that we created with "Open Frameworks" and Parador's outstanding position as a leading design brand in the flooring sector," says Birgit Kunth, Head of Marketing and Communication at Parador, pleased with the award.
