LIGNOLOC experienced “Little nail, big success” as the brand wins the German Design Award 2020. On November 22, the German Design Council announced the winners for excellent product design. “Our collated wooden nail has made it again.” 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.” The official award ceremony will take place on February 7, 2020.
According to the jury especially the sustainable approach of the innovative wooden nail was convincing. They further added that 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.
