A golden Slimfocus in the spotlight

On february 10th, the Slimfocus won the trophy for the German Design Award 2017 at the prize-awarding ceremony in Frankfurt.

An annual design competition held in Germany, the German Design Award has very strict criteria regarding the selection of its entrants.

The nominees are judged both on their innovative contribution to international design and on the design quality of their product. Just to be nominated is an honour, but to win a German Design Award is an exceptional achievement.

The Slimfocus was awarded the gold medal in the ‘Energy’ category.

The ground-breaking Slimfocus, is the world’s first hermetically sealed suspended fireplace that draws in air for combustion through the smoke flue. This makes it compatible with low-energy buildings (passive houses).
