ICONIC AWARDS 2021: Innovative Architecture
The jury of the ICONIC AWARDS 2021: Innovative Architecture honored the sun protection mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 from Haver & Boecker with two awards.
In the competition for the design award, the HAVER Architectural Mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 not only received the "Winner" award in the category "Products - Facades", but also in the "Innovative Material" category, which focuses on sustainable, energy-efficient and functional materials that are versatile in terms of design.
Visionary architecture, innovative products and sustainable communication: The best of the best are honored at the ICONIC AWARDS: Innovative Architecture. The internationally renowned, neutral design and architecture competition honors holistic projects from the fields of architecture, interior design, product design and brand communication.
Sun protection mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 - design that shows impact
The LARGO-TWIST 2045 wire mesh, developed especially for solar shading, is characterised by its tilted horizontal flat wires, which provide good solar or visual protection depending on the orientation. Installed over a large area on the building structure, the solar protection mesh creates a particularly homogeneous appearance with low transparency but good visibility from the inside to the outside.
In addition to its visual characteristics, the stainless steel mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 also convinces with its good sun shading values: with a sunlight incidence angle of 60° and double glazing, the mesh with its tilted horizontal flat wires, reduces the energy input by more than 90%. In combination with sun protection glazing, a g-value of 0.02 can be achieved. By comparison, most of the used HAVER architectural meshes achieve with the same requirements g-values between 0.1 and 0.18.
A competition for the whole world of architecture
The German Design Council is responsible for the ICONIC AWARDS: Innovative Architecture. As one of the world's most important centers of excellence for design and architecture, the German Design Council acts at the interface between designers and the construction industry. Its awards are internationally recognized as independent seals of quality for contemporary developments and design achievements.
We are proud of the award and will be pleased to receive it on October 11 at the award ceremony in the Munich Pinakothek der Moderne.
