23/03/2016 - The awning manufacturer markilux wants to set new standards in outdoor solar protection with the MX-1 and the somewhat slimmer MX-1 compact and to focus even more on the design topic. Already in November last year the new awning model received the Interior Innovation Award 2015 for its innovative design idiom. Now another award follows with the iF Design Award 2015.

According to the awning specialist markilux, the MX-1 and the MX-1 compact have a completely new futuristic, self-confident design. Form, function and concept of the design convinced now also the panel of experts of the iF Design Award, the seal of quality of which has been recognised as international trade mark for already 60 years. “Naturally, we are enthusiastic about this award. In total there were about 5,000 ideas and concepts from 53 countries, by means of which companies and creative parties have applied for the seal. Being one of the award winners, again confirms our direction we have been following for years in terms of design”, says Dan Schmitz with enthusiasm. In particular as this is already the second design prize for the MX-1 within a short period of time. Already in November 2014, the awning received several seals of quality of the Interior Innovation Award 2015.

Success formula: An eye for detail
For a long time awnings have led a rather shadowy existence in terms of design. The focus was always on the function and the design was of minor importance. However, the trend for individualisation of products in the past years has also led to the development of a new visual self-image for the premium brands. As managing director Dan Schmitz explains, markilux has started already many years ago to direct their attention also to the form, the detail. Numerous prizes have been awarded for this. The repeated award of the MX-1 within a short period of time, however, is something special, for it confirms the concept and the philosophy behind the design.

In a permanent exhibition, the iF design exhibition, in the middle of the Hamburg HafenCity, the award winners of this year’s award can be seen, including the MX-1. The iF design app also offers an overview of the awarded design concepts as from the end of February.
