Innovative Connecting System chyll® Product of the Year 2007
Every year, Pro-K, the umbrella organization of Germany’s plastic processing industry (GKV), re-elects its Product of the Year. This year the industry association awarded the valuable prize in the category General Use to the chyll® connecting system.
Thoroughly tested by the jury, chyll® was credited with “combining at the highest level functionality, design, and creativity.” At the official award ceremony to be held in Darmstadt at the start of February, the honor will documented by the handover of a decorative certificate. Attending: representatives of Pro-K, representatives of Röhm GmbH (Pexiglass supplier), as well as representatives of ThyssenKrupp Röhm Kunststoffe (system marketers) and the system fabricators Frank Europe GmbH.
One system for all ideas, chyll® is an innovative cubed connecting system allowing panels to be shaped to bodies or objects with the aid of aluminum profile strips and the matching corner elements. The ideal solution therefore when assembling showcases, illuminants, displays, furniture or other interior objects of high esthetic appeal. The system is tight, dust free, and remarkable for its rigidity. The mounting and installation options are wide ranging: free-standing, built-in, wall-mounted or suspended. No visible bonding surfaces or splices, no assembly traces, the system boasts low-stress structural properties: outstanding static stability, load-bearing capacity, and materials flexibility.
The original system is being introduced onto the European market under the roof of Düsseldorf-based ThyssenKrupp Röhm Kunststoffe GmbH. The idea and its development originated with designer Manfred Frank.
For the first time chyll® is being presented to an international audience at AMBIENTE 2007 in Frankfurt/Main, the world’s biggest consumer goods fair, on the Pro-K fair stand where from February 9 to 13, 2007, chyll® will be subject to the scrutiny of the general public.
