EGGER receives stream of awards from German Design Council for its innovative panel products

EGGER’s velvety matt and super-reflective gloss PerfectSense MDF panels won the Materials and Surfaces category in the German Design Awards – impressing judges with what they described as their exceptional tactile and aesthetic properties.

EGGER’s laminate flooring products also picked up two wins – in the Building and Elements category. The tough, easy to clean Handscraped Oak and Slate Black decors were praised for their authentic appearance and long service life.

A fourth EGGER product – an edge-profiled construction board – also received a special mention at the annual awards ceremony in Frankfurt that was attended by more than 1,300 people. Competition among entrants is fierce, with winners being judged to have added brand value through innovative design.

Bob Livesey, Commercial Director at EGGER Western European Division, said: “We are delighted to have received recognition for all three of our product areas from the German Design Council. Each of the prestigious awards highlights the quality of EGGER’s products and acknowledges the hard work of our product and decor teams. We are constantly investing in new technology so we can develop innovative surfaces, trend-led decor designs and market-leading products for our customers.”
