German Design Award for Sedus Innovations

After receiving the Iconic Award, the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Award, all Sedus innovations from Orgatec 2016 were recently awarded the coveted 2018 German Design Award by the German Design Council.

The "Winner" category included the se:do swivel chair, the se:line conference chair, the se:wall partition wall and screen system, and the se:works lounge furniture system. The swivel chair se:joy, presented for the first time at this year's Salone Ufficio in Milan, was awarded a "Special Mention".

The German Design Council is the authority for German brand and design. Founded in 1953 as a foundation on the initiative of the German Bundestag, it supports the economy by consistently adding value to brands by design.

Sedus Stoll AG joints the Global Compact of the United Nations (UNGC)

The entrepreneurial conduct of Sedus has always included a holistic, sustainable approach to business. In our strategy, this means that "we take economic, ecological and social aspects into account in all our decisions." In order to underline the position of Sedus Stoll AG with regard to sustainability, the directors of Sedus Stoll AG signed the Letter of Commitment to the UN Global Compact in May 2017.

The Global Compact of the United Nations is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. Up to now, 13,000 companies and organisations from 170 different countries have pledged themselves to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact. These 10 principles concern human rights, labour standards, the environment and fighting corruption.

In order to ensure continuous improvement, Sedus Stoll AG will, from now on, submit a yearly report to the United Nations on the progress it has achieved. By participating, we aim to foster achievement of our sustainability goals and gain new impetus as a result of the global networking of the initiative.
