Award 2007

Maximilian Bauer/ Philipp Böhm/ Johannes Hein



"gehsammler" is a cardboard magazine file with two compartments and a handle giving it a very distinctive appearance. The handle adds mobility making it useful while walking or standing. The size of "gehsammler" is based on the DIN A4 format and matches the size of a regular magazine file. "gehsammler" is made out of one piece of cardboard, which is folded and glued together. The excess trimmings are minimal, enabling an environmental friendly and economical production. The two compartments make it possible to easily organize and secure papers, books and brochures. For shipping and storage "gehsammler" folds flat and saves space. Conceived mobile, "gehsammler" may be used for many purposes: at home, in school and at work, at fairs and at exhibitions - it is helpful everywhere!
