Viasit wins another German Design Award for a chair from the 'Drumback' range

Just in time for this year's Orgatec trade fair, Viasit is delighted to announce a further success in the prestigious German Design Award.

The manufacturer of office furniture, based in Germany's Saarland region, has won the 'German Design Award 2019' for the conference chair from the 'Drumback' range designed by Martin Ballendat.

The conference chair has a trademark integrated seat and back pan. As the name of the range suggests, the stable shell that forms the back of the chair is covered with a mesh material. This ensures really comfortable support for the person sitting in the chair and also represents a very ecological solution by saving on moulded foam and other structural elements.

At Orgatec in Cologne (23rd-27th October, 2018), Viasit will be officially unveiling the swivel and cantilever versions of the Drumback conference chair.

The Drumback range is growing and offers considerable freedom in terms of fitting out entire premises – to both providers of furnishings and interior designers. Because in addition to the latest conference chair, Viasit also offers the office chair – which has won several design and environmental prizes itself – and various visitor chairs. Another new product at Orgatec is the 'Newback' office chair, where Martin Ballendat has again picked up on the characteristic design elements of the Drumback and reinterpreted these to create a whole new design.

The German Design Award is bestowed by the German Design Council. The German Design Award is among the most prestigious international design awards and recognises high-calibre entries within the field of product and communication design.
