The Elements Exhibition saw German components manufacturer, Casetur Mechanism, win an Elements of Innovation Award for its space-saving furniture mechanism, CM4070. The product debuted in the UK at the Show, with the award presented to inventor Ben Casetur.
Now available in the UK, the CM4070 has been carefully designed for horizontal applications and enables work surfaces to be neatly transformed into compact shelving via a smooth two-step rotation. The mechanism can be rotated to 90 degrees, and even allows corner workspace to rotate for use in the most compact of spaces.
Benjamin Halde adds, “I really didn’t expect to win the award. The competition was really high. It feels good to win and the after affects of the exposure will help me in the UK, adding credibility to the product.”
Independent awards judge, John Legg commented “Awards such as The Elements of Innovation are important because they highlight the very best among suppliers in our industry and help visitors to directly access what the judges believe to be the most innovative introductions at the show.
“Entries to the awards this year were extremely varied but common to almost all entries was a desire to be innovative, either in a technical manner or in terms of aesthetics. For the fittings and components side, I was looking for something genuinely new, genuinely innovative – and although many of the entries had much to applaud, Casetur Mechanism stood out as an example of true innovation.”
