Share the spoils with KURZ! We have won the Red Dot Design Award for our HMI instrument panel for automobile interiors. What makes it special is an almost one-meter-wide control panel with backlighting, concealed by a high-gloss surface with dead-front effect. To create this design we bundled our entire know-how - the building blocks of the overall HMI concept all stem from the KURZ Group.


  • Origin of automotive panel with intuitive operation and ambient lighting for vehicle interiors
  • Procedures used: In-Mold Decoration (IMD), Functional Foil Bonding (FFB), In-Mold Labeling (IML), lamination

Making every product unique – Home appliances decoration & function

Wednesday, November 18, 10:00AM – 11:00AM, Language: english

Presenters: Steven Hirschberg, Project Engineer, Plastic Decoration, LEONHARD KURZ Stiftung & Co. KG & Johannes Schad, Product Manager, PolyIC GmbH & Co. KG

Smart appliances reign triumphant: According to a market analysis by Statista, by 2024 there will be at least one smart household appliance in 6.1 million homes, almost twice as many as in 2020. These home appliances are distinguished by their highly functional and visually appealing control panels, and displays for touch and gesture control. High-duty sensors take on functions individually aligned to customer wishes. The control panel only becomes visible by touch or proximity, and is dramatically displayed using light, color, and other accents. Our online seminar will show you how these smart-home solutions are produced.


  • Integration options for touch sensors
  • Modern and innovative decoration in different processes
  • Combination of function and backlighting
