De Vorm Wins Two iF Design Awards 2021

De Vorm won not one but two iF Design Awards with Mute Fit acoustic panel and Hale chair. iF Design Award is a world-renowned prize, with a jury of 98 independent experts. The competition was intense: almost 10,000 entries were submitted from 52 countries.

They were both designed with a “process first” approach, getting the most out of De Vorm’s PET Felt technology and pushing the possibilities of the material further.

Hale PET Felt Stack Chair

The design of Hale was inspired by the classic school chair and is designed together with Ivan Kasner. Simple, functional, no-nonsense. These principles are not only reflected in the way it looks, but also in how it’s made. The seat and the back of the chair are produced from PET Felt, recycled plastic bottles. This technology brought many traditional production steps to one smart 3D pressing technique. Hale also won a Red Dot Award.


Mute Fit PET Felt Acoustic Panel

Mute Fit always fits. It is a universal acoustic panel designed to match every size and surface. You can seamlessly cover a wall of any size and work around all difficult areas, such as corners and niches.

Moreover, the asymmetric pattern allows you to play and create your own design. An asymmetric curtain-like pattern combines many flat and curved sections. It ensures that any piece cut out of the panel could have flat edges. In this way, the pieces of any width can be seamlessly connected with the rest of the installation. Mute Fit also won an Archpaper Award.
