AWARD-WINNING ORSY® SUPER CASE
Every container for tools and packaging material should be as well thought-out and constructed: the multi-functional ORSY® system case was recently distinguished with the renowned Red Dot Design Award 2017 and the iF Design Award 2017. The system case, made of scratch-resistant and durable plastic, can be custom outfitted with various foam inserts or system boxes. It is available in different sizes and heights.
SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL LIFE CYCLE
Some building materials and raw materials are already becoming scarce. That is why the design concept Cradle to Cradle has defined the circular value chain as its guiding principle. This technical cycle for consumables shows a way forward into the future of the construction industry. The Cradle to Cradle certified quick-mounting system Varifix® from Würth, a complete product range for technical building installations, was also installed in CARMEN WÜRTH FORUM. In this way, Würth makes it possible to experience sustainability.

UNTIL 26 NOV 2017 WÜRTH SUPPORTS GERMAN PAVILION
“Radical and brutal”: that is how the art magazine “art” describes Anne Imhof’s work for the 57th Biennale international art exhibition in Venice. The five-hour performance by the 39-year-old shooting star of the art scene is about power and powerlessness. For her work “Faust,” Imhof makes full use of the difficult conditions in the German pavilion, which is intersected by transparent false floors. The performers hang from the wall while two Dobermans await visitors in a kennel at the entrance. The German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, praised the work, saying that it helped to “shed light on social spaces and their centers of power.” Würth supports the German pavilion at the Biennale as a sponsor, with a clear stand: “Dialogue with the arts promotes tolerance and associative learning; it incites new ways of thinking.”
