From the experts' point of view, the clear design and intuitive user experience were the main reasons for voting to award the SALTO MyLock Configurator a 2020 ARCHITECTS’ DARLING AWARD. In addition, they positively highlighted the immediate display of configuration changes and the user navigation. SALTO MyLock was clearly above the average of all participants in most evaluation categories.
The award was judged by a jury of communication experts and renowned representatives of top international architecture companies and specifiers. In the course of the evaluation, the jury members answered questions about the brand, the "look & feel," "search results," and open questions about "difficulties," "time required," and "personal impressions." An overall mark was derived from this, which formed the basis for the final ranking.
SALTO MyLock enables specifiers, architects, partners, and end users to individually configure SALTO‘s wire-free electronic door lock components and visualise them on different door types or styles. In addition to the electronic hardware, they can choose from several door models and a wide range of colours, finishes, handles and functions.
The renowned ARCHITECTS' DARLING AWARDS have been awarded by Heinze GmbH for ten years. This year, the awards were judged in 25 product areas, from flooring to technical products. In addition, 12 theme awards were evaluated by a jury. Categories here included "Best Website," "Best Product Innovation," and, new this year, "Best Product Configurator." The Cradle to Cradle Challenge Award, the award for sustainability and corporate responsibility, was also presented again.
