Design quality is at the heart of this prestigious award. The panel recognised the GEZE ActiveStop door damper in the new version fitted on the frame as an innovative product solution with exceptional design quality, and awarded it a top position in the 'Living' category.

GEZE ActiveStop promises innovative convenience for room doors, combined with elegant design. It is easier and more comfortable to enter a room than ever before. The intelligent system ensures controlled, dampened opening and closing of room doors, whether retrofitted as a version fitted on the frame which can be stuck on and easily be removed again, or discreetly integrated in the door leaf. Because thanks to the small integration depth, the door damper for internal doors meets the most stringent of design demands and integrates invisibly in virtually every door leaf.

Gentle stopping –holding open with ease – quiet closing

The intelligent door damper also prevents damage to walls and furniture in the vicinity of the door, and to the door itself. Whether with a gentle or more energetic push – GEZE ActiveStop opens doors independently up to an individually adjustable hold-open position of between 80 and 140 degrees. Doors are halted at the right time and kept open securely in the required position. Thanks to active damping, they close gently and quietly when they reach 25 degrees. GEZE ActiveStop safely holds doors open on its own, without the need for lock latches. Doors run freely at between 25 and 60 degrees. They are halted securely from 25 or from 60 degrees.

Prestigious and traditional design award

The Baden-Württemberg international design award – awarded since 2015 as the Focus Open – looks back on a long tradition and is highly regarded both at home and abroad. The Design Center Baden Württemberg invites companies and designers worldwide to take part. The 'Focus Silver' award goes to products whose design quality and innovative solutions impress within a category.
