Just a few days after the official launch of Troldtekt wave, the wave-shaped acoustic panel has won the Green Product Award. The award, which was presented on 8 June in Berlin, recognises sustainable and innovative design. Troldtekt wave has also been nominated for the German Design Award and the DETAIL Produktpreis.
On 3 June 2015, Troldtekt A/S launched a new product – Troldtekt wave – at the ARCHITECT@WORK exhibition in Forum Copenhagen. Less than a week later, the product was awarded its first international prize. Troldtekt’s CEO Peer Leth and Key Account Manager Jesper Kvist received the Green Product Award on behalf of the company during a ceremony at the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Monday 8 June.
Jury praises clean and simple design
The Green Product Award is given for sustainable and innovative product design which makes a significant contribution to a greener future. The award has eleven categories, and Troldtekt wave won the Freestyle category, which covers products that do not fit any of the other categories. As part of its deliberations, the jury praised the “clean and simple” design of the new acoustic panel, saying also that it was “outstanding” that Troldtekt wave is Cradle to Cradle-certified in the silver category.
Green investments pay off
Troldtekt’s CEO Peer Leth is delighted that the new product has got off to such an excellent start:
“Creating sustainable and intelligent acoustics solutions is at the heart of Troldtekt’s business strategy. Winning such a distinguished prize as the Green Product Award confirms that our green investments are paying off,” he says.
In addition to the jury, which is made up of eight experts, participants in an open online vote also helped to decide the winners of the Green Product Award among 97 finalists. More than 400 products from 21 countries were entered in the competition.
New life to walls and ceilings
Troldtekt wave is a wave-shaped acoustic panel designed to give ceiling or wall surfaces a sculptural, three-dimensional look. The panel is part of the Troldtekt acoustic series, which is made from the natural materials wood and cement. It is Cradle to Cradle-certified and has the same outstanding acoustic, fire-protective and indoor climate properties as Troldtekt’s classic acoustic panels.
“With Troldtekt wave, we have developed a product which can add new life to walls and ceilings, and which can be industrially produced at our existing plant,” says Peer Leth.
