Proud achievement – The DRY AGER® wins the iF Design Award 2018

All good things come in threes: the DRY AGER® has once again been awarded a prize for its design. After the Plus X Award 2017 and the Winner nomination by the German Design Award 2018, the DRY AGER® has now received the internationally renowned iF Design Award 2018.

Design and Function

The iF Award is awarded annually by an independent panel of judges. In the year 2018, 63 renowned design experts, from more than 20 countries, selected the winners according to established criteria. The basis for the foundation of the 1953 prize was the Bauhaus design theory, which emphasises not only its design but also its functionality. Good looks alone are not enough. In addition to an aesthetic and unique design, the products must also convince in terms of utility value and function. The versatility of the functional design is reflected in the winning portfolio, which ranges from the ultra-light laptop to the mini excavator.

All criteria met – no problem for the DRY AGER® dry aging fridge

The requirements of the iF Award have been linked to changes in the corporate culture. In addition to design and function, concepts such as social and ecological responsibility are also a considered criteria. The DRY AGER® dry aging fridge for dry aged beef from Landig not only convinced the judges because of its sustainable production, but also due to the excellent design –  a branded clear and easy to clean stainless steel surface, its ease of use and installation. The successful product from Swabia triumphed over other international competitors.
