"Open Frameworks Design Edition” wins GOOD DESIGN Award 2019


The Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, and the European Centre for Architecture, Art Design and Urban Sciences have now awarded the prestigious GOOD DESIGN Award 2019 to the "Open Frameworks Design Edition", which Hadi Teherani developed together with Parador.

The Design Edition combines different shapes and colours to create a completely new approach to floor design, whose design limits reach into infinity: The plank elements of the engineered wood flooring and laminate range can be combined in a wide variety of ways and create space for almost unlimited design possibilities. The "Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani" has now been awarded the prestigious and internationally renowned GOOD DESIGN Award 2019 for this innovative design and technical approach.

For their innovative design approach, the Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani have already received several awards, including the red dot Award for Product Design, the German Design Award 2019, the European Product Design Award 2019 and the Iconic Award: Innovative Architecture 2019.

I think we’re all well aware that this work isn’t easy. I want to say thank you to everyone involved for this fabulous achievement – they all did a wonderful job!” A welcoming address by Professor Martin Haag, the head of municipal construction planning, was followed by the traditional topping-out speech. This was given by Michael Dürrmeier, foreman at ZÜBLIN, the general contractor, who wished the building ceremonial blessings and good luck.

German Design Award 2020 – Excellent Product Design – Lifestyle and Fashion


Our GRID Capsule Collection for HARBOUR has been honoured with a “German Design Award-Winner 2020” in the category “Excellent Product Design - Lifestyle and Fashion”.

Together with HARBOUR, a manufacturer of eyeglasses, Hadi Teherani is now literally designing from face to face. The laser sintering process in 3D printing is one of the new drafting and production techniques. But how does the archetypical repertoire of shapes for eyewear live on? How can it be transformed into a present-day fit and evolve further in the future? How much material is needed to ensure they are stable and conform to each and every requirement? The Grid Capsule Collection from HARBOUR offers a convincing answer.

JURY ASSESSMENT. These lightweight, futuristic and striking eyeglasses manufactured using 3D printing appear to not only open up a new, economical production option due to their honeycomb structure: the line equally offers numerous shapes, colours and sizes to suit every taste and need. The obviously functional grid-like form also acts as a subtle distinguishing feature for those viewing the frame.
