Awarded Top 100 seal of quality and Good Design Award
Parador is Top Innovator 2022
Coesfeld, January 2022 – Good news at the start of the year: the Coesfeld-based flooring manufacturer Parador has reason to be pleased about two more important awards: Parador has been included in the ranks of the 100 most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany with the TOP 100 seal of quality and has been named Top Innovator 2022. In addition, the One Ground Design Edition presented in autumn 2020 has won the internationally highly respected Good Design Award 2022.
Parador has now been awarded the TOP 100 seal of quality as Top Innovator 2022 for its sophisticated innovation management. The TOP 100 honours the most innovative companies in the German SME sector and is the only competition that recognises innovation management, making it the most important award for innovative companies in the SME sector. Only creative companies with visions and a sense for what is new make it into the ranks of the 100 most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany. Parador is already successfully included for the fifth time.
Furthermore, after the Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani, the company has now already received the Good Design Award for the second time, this time for the floors of the One Ground Design Edition, which Parador presented to the public for the first time in autumn 2020. Since then, the eight extraordinary floors and the accompanying marketing campaign have received several national and international awards, including the Red Dot Award, the German Design Award, the German Brand Award and the Muse Design Award.
The Good Design Awards are one of the oldest international design awards and have been promoting excellence in design and innovation since 1958. Each year the programme attracts new and innovative design projects from around the world and recognises the best in all areas of design, architecture, engineering, research and social innovation. The Good Design Awards, founded by Ray and Charles Eames, are awarded annually by the Chicago Athenaeum and an international jury of experts and are among the most renowned and prestigious design awards in the world.
“We are more than proud to have been honoured with these two awards. These awards underline Parador’s pioneering role in terms of design, innovation management and manufacturing perfection. Our brand essence, “Living Performance”, stands for the union of the art of living and the demand for performance, and these two prizes make it clear that we put this ambition into practice every day with our products and services,” says Birgit Kunth, Head of Brand, Marketing and Communication, emphasising the relevance of these awards.
