Sensys thin door hinge wins another award

The German Design Council has awarded the German Design Award – Special Mention 2017 to Hettich for the Sensys thin door hinge. The German Design Award goes to outstanding products that point the way in the German and international design landscape.

The competition is the international premium prize awarded by the Design Council. Its aim: to discover, present and reward unique design trends. Each year, prizes in the categories product and communication design are awarded to entries that are outstanding in their design quality. The Sensys thin door hinge was awarded the German Design Award – Special Mention 2017 in the "Furniture" category.

Hettich has already received the iF Design Award 2016 for the thin door hinge. With an extremely shallow cup, it gives furniture makers maximum design flexibility for further options in making a mark of distinction. It permits the use of thin core board panels in a thickness from just 8 mm with a design defining surface application layer, such as glass. Thin solid fronts made, for example, of solid surface materials are also an option. The look and feel of exclusive materials can now be combined with the purist style of slender lines and narrow reveals.
