Corpus awarded with Red Dot: Best of the Best


An award for ground-breaking design, the Red Dot is already considered to be the crowning achievement in the design world, but the Red Dot: ‘Best of the Best’, as the highest award in the competition, goes even further, raising the bar significantly higher. The Red Dot panel of experts awards this internationally recognised hallmark of quality only to the best products in any category. Among the total of 6,300 submissions, the Corpus designed by Hadi Teherani ceiling system is thus a member of the exclusive 1 % to receive the coveted award this year.

Focusing on form and function, Corpus provides excellent acoustic performance in an expressive design, a delight for the eyes and the ears that has a great effect on the atmospheric experience. The innovative concept behind the multiple award-winning Corpus ceiling system is based on creating unique room layouts by arranging standard shapes. The basis of this is a modular set of building blocks made up of ten different dimensioned, rectangular and square acoustic elements with differing depths and ultra-fine, white surfaces lined with non-woven fabric, enabling an almost unlimited number of options to combine them. The ten three-dimensional acoustic elements can be arranged at will and either connected seamlessly or installed with variable spacing. Cubic LED elements that are just about to enter series production will provide even more variety and effective lighting accents.

With Corpus, architects can place their own highly personal stamp on even large rooms in which completely suspended ceiling systems are not an option, whether for aesthetic reasons or with exposed concrete soffits. Corpus adds a playful, inspirational light-heartedness even to technical, cool-looking exposed concrete surfaces, without having to make any compromises in terms of the room acoustics. Easy to install, they help with the efficient implementation of the design plan.

The multiple award-winning collaboration with the renowned architect and designer Hadi Teherani is an important milestone in OWA's development as a company and the growing list of internationally recognised design awards, with the ‘Red Dot: Best of the Best’ as the crowning achievement, demonstrate the company's strategic alignment and consistent customer orientation.

With its creative solutions for the individual desires and specific requirements of architects all over the world, OWA is not only winning awards and recognition, it is making the designers themselves the winners. After all, innovative ceiling systems such as Corpus will open new creative opportunities to architects all over the world to be able to design their ceilings in an even more free and individual manner.

Corpus is one of seven exclusive ceiling systems in the OWAconsult® collection. More information about Corpus at
