ZARGES K 424 XC Mobile Box receives German Design Award 2017
It is the mobility solution for convenient, secure transport: The ZARGES K424 XC combines the high product quality customers have come to expect from traditional ZARGES cases with an innovative mobility solution featuring built-in castors and a retractable telescopic handle integrated in the frame under the box, thus retaining the spacious interior and practical stackability. The German Design Council has now recognized the K424 XC in the “Universal Design” and “Workshops and Tools” categories.
The German Design Award is the premium international award for design. Its aim: to discover, present and recognize unique design trends. This is why each year top-notch submissions from the field of product and communications design – all pioneers of the international design landscape in their own right – receive recognition. Initiated in 2012, the German Design Award is among the most prestigious design competitions around the world and is widely respected in professional circles and beyond.
The German Design Award is presented by the German Design Council, Germany’s leading brand and design foundation, established in 1953 on the initiative of the German Parliament. The organization helps business achieve consistent brand value through design. This makes the German Design Council one of the world’s leading competency centres for communication and brand leadership in the field of design.
Introduced last year, the K424 XC Mobile Box marries the popular design of ZARGES cases, which have received many accolades, with outstanding value: Thanks to the built-in castors even heavy loads can be transported easily and securely. The secret lies in the sturdy frame under the box, which conceals both the built-in castors and the telescopic handle. Optionally mountable 125 mm plastic wheels or 220 mm air-filled rubber tyres ensure even better handling in rough terrain and make the case mobile on uneven or sandy surfaces. All versions of the Mobile Box retain the full, spacious interior and can also be stacked with ease. The K424 XC is available in six different sizes and can be customized to meet specific requirements with additional accessories, including inner liners, lid pockets and custom foam solutions.
The case is particularly popular with sports teams, photographers and service technicians as a material case and toolbox, and with aid organizations, as it ensures easy transport of equipment.
