Another feature in the cap for Lignoloc, as the brand is awarded the German Design Award 2020. The award was received by Christian Beck, CEO & General Manager of Beck, and Stefan Siemers, Head of the Research and Development Department, received the Award in Frankfurt.

Our collated wooden nail has made it again. 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.”
Statement of the jury
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.”
