IDEAL AP40 PRO air purifier is "Product of the Year 2019"
The IDEAL AP40 PRO high-performance air purifier won the award for "Product of the Year 2019" at Paperworld. The prestigious panel of judges, comprising members from management, specialist retail, design and trade press, was par-ticularly impressed by its outstanding interplay of design, functionality and high-quality workmanship.
"Product of the Year" competition was announced for the nineteenth time
The "Product of the Year" competition was announced by the German Association of the Paper, Office Supplies and Stationery Brand Industry (Verband der PBS-Markenindustrie) for the nineteenth time. The objective of this is to continue to find paper, office supply and stationery items with innovative new ideas for use and de-sign in 2019. The IDEAL AP40 PRO high-performance air purifier was the clear winner in the "Commercial office supplies" category, offering a convenient operating concept for health, efficiency and well-being.
This is hardly surprising, as the IDEAL AP40 PRO combines a simple design with efficient air purification, while ensuring extremely smooth operation and a low ener-gy consumption. And thanks to its sophisticated design, it fits seamlessly into any environment. "This product is equally at home in a trendy designer loft and an open-plan office. It blends into its surroundings. Even its colours can be changed. A vi-brant sunshine yellow, a fresh mountain water blue, an uplifting orange or a subtle grey. It can also be colour-coordinated to match any small office or home office. If you want, you can change the covers according to your mood and the time of year. Flexibility that appeals!" explained Christine Schmidhuber, spokeswoman for the panel of judges.
IDEAL AP40 PRO: The ideal solution for all offices
The IDEAL AP40 PRO noticeably improves the air quality and creates an environ-ment that is free from pollutants, meaning that people naturally feel better, are more focused on their work and are ill less often. Air purifiers are therefore an essential piece of equipment in modern offices and private spaces. The panel of judges add-ed: "At the same time, what we have here is an extremely efficient product that is good for allergy sufferers and offers everyone else the best possible filtering of pol-lutants and fine dust thanks to its 360° multi-layer filter. Maximum air flow rates com-bined with optimal air filtering. Bacteria, unpleasant odours or pollen no longer stand a chance."
The essential functions can be intuitively operated using a convenient control ele-ment. This feature and the particularly quiet operating noises impressed the panel of judges, who recommend it for use in offices as well as recreation rooms and even nurseries.
"Elegant, understated, self-explanatory and high-performance, the IDEAL AP40 PRO ensures fresh and clean air in workplaces, which is more than welcomed by every office worker. This product of the year is not only an unmitigated success, it is also the IDEAL solution for all offices. Whether in an open-plan office or a man-ager's corner office with a view over the Frankfurt skyline," stated Christine Schmid-huber, referring to the trade fair venue in her congratulatory speech.
Innovative office environment
The judges are certain that the IDEAL AP40 PRO, just like the winning products from the other six categories, embodies changes in previous concepts of living and working. The "Products of the Year 2019" represent an innovative office environ-ment which encourages a sense of well-being because they all put people at the forefront instead of sophisticated technological innovations. The panel of judges concluded that it is "a flawless product quality that counts and goes that one step further to ultimately make a product a 'Product of the year' for the paper, office sup-plies and stationery brand industry."
Managing Director Daniel Priester: "We are really pleased to be one of the 2019 prizewinners of this distinguished product award in the paper, office supplies and stationery industry, and are truly thankful that you chose us. This prize shows us that we are taking the right strategy with our IDEAL Health product area and, for us, this award is the best endorsement of our work."
The independent panel, made up of prominent judges, assessed 72 completely dif-ferent products and product series on the basis of a strict list of criteria, and present-ed awards to the winning products during the nineteenth competition. The prizes were awarded on 26th January 2019 at Paperworld, an international trade fair held in Frankfurt am Main, by the chairman of the German Association of the Paper, Of-fice Supplies and Stationery Brand Industry (Verband der PBS-Markenindustrie), Torsten Jahn.
