ICONIC AWARDS 2018: Innovative Architecture

The focus of the "ICONIC AWARD: Innovative Architecture" lies on the integrated presentation and interplay of the functions within the context of the architecture.
With this in mind, the new JUNG switch design LS 1912 was awarded the winner in the product category by the renowned expert jury. Based on the JUNG switches of the early years, the rocker switch LS 1912 gives the mechanics of the switch a completely new feel. The switchgear is designed so that the cover sits flush with the frame. Only the rocker lever stands out from the unit as a style element. JUNG has transferred its many years of experience in metal processing to the fine selection of materials – from aluminium to stainless steel and brass to shiny chrome.

Universal Design Consumer Award

The IUD (Institute for Universal Design) regularly advertises the Universal Design Competition, an innovative design competition for companies, start-ups and students. The submitted products and services are assessed by a jury of experts and consumers according to the criteria of broad, simple and intuitive usability, cross-generational handling and the avoidance of a stigmatising design. The classic JUNG switch LS 990 in Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier fully meets the requirements in the view of the jury and therefore received the Universal Design Consumer Award 2018.
