halm: award winner for innovation & design
Red Dot Design Award for halm
halm – the all-rounder with a real sense of style. The practically seamless combination of solid wood and innovative plastic gives the halm design aesthetic unity and, as a result, makes it robust and particularly easy to care for as well as giving it stackable, space-saving qualities. Seat and back surfaces and the optional armrests are available in a choice of six colours. These can be harmoniously combined with the solid beech or oak frames featuring a natural finish or one of a number of stained finishes. Optional seat and backrest liners give added comfort. In its own discreetly elegant way, halm excels in mastering all the challenges facing furniture in the cafeteria and restaurant sector as well as in the public waiting areas of the care sector.
The well-thought-out and unusual design proved enough to convince the international jury of experts at the world-renowned Red Dot Awards. Competing against manufacturers’ submissions from 54 countries, halm was able to set itself apart in the Product Design 2017 category. The chair with the special material mix will now be on display from July for one year at the Red Dot Design Museum, the largest museum for contemporary design in the world.
