Koenig & Bauer’s innovative digital press, VariJET 106, received a “Gold Winner” trophy in the category “Product” at the iF Design Award.
For 65 years now, the iF Design Award has served as an internationally recognised label for outstanding design and is one of the world’s most important design awards.A jury of 67 international experts evaluated 6,400 entries from 50 countries before selecting the most innovative design developments in seven categories.
In its award statement, the jury commended the clear structures in the outward appearance of the VariJET, which follows the new product design recently introduced by Koenig & Bauer. The contrasting corporate colours grey and blue, with individual illuminated elements as highlights, contribute to what was called “a classy approach”.
The VariJET 106 is on course to be made available to the first customers in 2020. The press combines the advantages of the inkjet technology with those of a classic offset process.
“With our modern press design, we are setting not only technical, but also visual standards,” said Dagmar Ringel, head of corporate communication and marketing at Koenig & Bauer. “The iF Design Award strengthens us in our conviction that we are on the right track.”
