German Design Award 2012 – item Line D30 wins Silver


On 10 February 2012, item was presented with the “German Design Award 2012 silver” at a ceremony held during the Ambiente trade fair in Frankfurt.

The German Design Council in Frankfurt deliberated over a total of 1,500 entries to select the best 50 products, including Line D30 from item. Product designer Markus Völkel accepted the prestigious trophy on behalf of the company.

Line D30 delivers design simplicity and ease of use for manufacturing based on lean production. Using just a single tool, tubes and fastening elements made from high-strength aluminium can be built into versatile fixtures directly on site. Ingenious fastening techniques produce flexible fixings for elements that can easily be combined with the item MB Building Kit System – making Line D30 a truly adaptable and efficient solution for any production system.


Having already won the iF gold award 2011 in the spring, Line D30's latest prestigious design accolade highlights the stringent demands that item places on uniting high-end design with optimum function in product development.

The German Design Award is presented annually by the German Design Council in Frankfurt, which was founded in 1953 by the German Parliament and has since become one of the world's leading competence centres for communication and knowledge-sharing in the field of design.
