Excellence in design

Blieskastel, 4th September 2018

Excellence in design: gallery is awarded with a Janus de l’Industrie distinction by the IFD 

gallery, a new wiring accessories range for France, has been awarded a prestigious Janus de l’Industrie by the Institut Français du Design (French Design Institute), following in the award footsteps of Hager Dream & Elcom Home Set.

The French Institute of Design (IFD), founded in 1951, selects products and services for the Janus de l'Industrie award for their respect of the user and the environment. Indeed, the IFD is all about promoting design in industry by selecting products and services that create added value for the user, respect the environment and promote professional ethics in a market economy.

A ‘5E’ grid is used by the Jury as criteria to evaluate Janus winners. These 5Es are in line with our own overall design approach philosophy:economy, ergonomy, aesthetics, ethics & emotion. (In French: économie, ergonomie, esthétique, éthique & emotion.)

The jury members were no doubt won over by gallery as aesthetically it differentiates itself with a light band, different materials and an interchangeable contrasting underplate. Even the colour names are a design in themselves, offering choices such as latté and pecan.

gallery, designed by Erwin van Handenhoven, Hager Group Design Director, will be available for both the residential & commercial markets in France, as of January 2019. Congratulations to all colleagues who contributed to this success story.
