The collated wooden nail now also convinced the jury of the German Design Council
The German Design Council announced the winners of the German Design Award on November 22, 2019. LIGNOLOC® – the first collated wood nail – was selected as "Winner" in the category „Excellent Product Design – Workshop and Tools“.
Stefan Siemers, Director Research & Development at BECK, is delighted with the recent recognition: "It is overwhelming to see how a product that usually plays the leading role unnoticed, becomes the focus of attention and is honored with such a high-ranking prize."
Especially the sustainable approach of the innovative wooden nail was convincing. The statement of the jury: LIGNOLOC® is the first magazine-loaded nail made of wood. It is shot into the wood material without pre-drilling by a pneumatic nailer and thus replaces traditional steel nails. A real innovation that is environmentally friendly, sustainable and allows for an even more purist use of wood – without any metal, glue or similar.
The official award ceremony will take place on February 7, 2020 in Frankfurt am Main.
