15/02/2015

Epta was awarded a special mention for the RevUP Family by Costan and Bonnet Névé for the prestigious German Design Award 2016, organized by the German Design Council, today in its fifth edition. A jury composed of a pool of experts, coming from all over the world, has nominated the winners of the single categories, who will receive the coveted honour the 12 February in Frankfurt, during the Ambiente 2016 international fair.

The German Design Council, which is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year, is a foundation with more than 200 members, including Designers, Associations and Institutions; it considers design a key factor in business development and communicates added value through exhibitions, conferences, seminars and publications, in Germany and worldwide. One of the main objectives of this exclusive centre of expertise is to identify, represent and award excellence in design that stands out for its originality and aesthetic refinement: for this reason, in 2012 the German Design Award was established and has become one of the best-known and appreciated competitions in the world.

More specifically, Epta was awarded the Retail Category prize for its RevUP line of cabinets, which is capable of furnishing an entire sales outlet with a single family of products. The RevUP Technology was designed to revolutionize the latest display concepts in order to strengthen the Retailers’ business, creating a new image of the Cold segment in the consumer’s mind, with an eye to visibility, comfort, energy savings and a completely new look. Finally, the new line is the ultimate expression of “The Epta Way UP: preserving food value” concept, by which Epta is committed to ensure perfect food preservation and display, promoting its value and safety.
