The AWISA trade show is Australia’s most important woodworking and furniture industry event. One of the biennial event’s highlights is the industry magazine’s presentation of its sought-after “Gold” awards within the scope of the international trade show in recognition of outstanding products. This year, a Vauth-Sagel product was one of the winners: the company was one of only six to receive a Gold Star Award Honourable Mention for its innovative corner cabinet solution CORNERSTONE MAXX in the attractive Planero design. The industry magazine’s expert jury awards this prize in recognition of innovative technologies, services or manufacturing methods. It carefully examined all of the products shown by the in total 120 exhibitors.
With CORNERSTONE MAXX in the Planero design, which was presented at the AWISA with a cohesive stand concept that matched Vauth-Sagel’s new CI, a product that addresses one of the key challenges of interior design caught the jury’s attention. The corner cabinet solution is unparalleled when it comes to making optimum use of difficult to reach spaces. It not only creates additional usable space but is also comfortable to use and easy to install. “CORNERSTONE MAXX is the perfect embodiment of our mission,” says Claus Sagel, the Vauth-Sagel CEO. “We are extremely delighted about the award. It confirms that our approach is right.” The Gold Star Award Honourable Mention is the most recent award which the traditional owner-managed company has won for its work: this year alone, CORNERSTONE MAXX and VS ENVI Toolbox have won a German Design Award 2018 as well as an iF Design Award. The two products were also amongst the prize winners in the UNIVERSAL DESIGN Competition 2018.
