The search for a suitable substrate for a foldable external lining of textile and leather or film-based materials was effectively solved with SWISSCDF by SWISS KRONO AG, a compact panel with high-density black-tinted core and an extremely tough surface featuring optional melamine coating in different colors.
Last November, the piece of furniture obtained the ICONIC AWARDS 2017 – “Interior Innovation” for its design. Now it has also been nominated for the German Design Award 2018 in a slightly varied version together with two other SWISSCDF foldable projects. More SWISSCDF products are currently being prepared or tested, including shelving and storage systems that can be assembled without any tools or accessories.
