THE winner of the first European-wide ROCKPANEL Product Design Award has been announced.
During the summer, ROCKPANEL, the facade panel manufacturer invited architects, planners, product designers, specialists in related disciplines and students to design a unique and creative stone-look product to reflect the facades of the future.
52 designs were submitted from across the continent and the winner was announced as Roman Baudisch (pictured), an architectural technician from Hamburg, with his design ‘Volcano’.
The announcement was made at the official opening of the new production facility in Roermond, the Netherlands, to which all the finalists were invited.
As well as pocketing prize money of 5,000 Euros, Roman’s winning design will be included in the ROCKPANEL stone range, to be launched for 2015. The ‘Volcano’ design is now being further developed in close collaboration with the winner.
