Martor winner of the German Design Award 2016
Only recently introduced: The premium squeeze-grip knife Secupro 625, one of four award-winning products from Martor.
The German Design Award is one of the leading international design awards and, alongside the red dot, it is the most important product design award presented in Germany. Martor fielded four products in the race - and won no fewer than four times. The Secupro 625, the Secunorm 380, the Secunorm 590 and the Secumax 350 received the German Design Award 2016 from the Frankfurt Design Council. The Council thus acknowledged the "excellent combination of aesthetics and practical value" of the latest safety knives of the Solingen-based company. The "winners" were the Martor products in the category "Workshop and Tools" - one of ten product design categories in which a Gold Award and 15 Winner Awards are presented. In the tool segment alone, Martor was able to secure four of a total of 16 titles awarded. This was the first high-profile design award for the premium squeeze-grip knife Secupro 625, that had been introduced at the A+A 2015 trade show, and the Big Bag Cutter Secunorm 590. The Secunorm 380, the world's first safety knife with a blade extension length of almost 8 cm, had previously been distinguished with the red dot Design Award 2015. Clinching a "clean sweep" was the innovative Secumax 350 with concealed blade: Before it received the German Design Award 2016 and the red dot Design Award 2015, it had already received the pro-k Award 2015. The German Design Award will be presented in mid-February 2016 at the Frankfurt "Ambiente", the largest consumer goods trade show in the world. www.martor.de
