Iconic Space Grille

A crystal clear selection:
ABC Award 2020 for KURZ

Curiosity and the drive to innovate pay off, as evidenced by our ‘Iconic Space Grille’. Its 3D-prism design, high efficiency IMD technology, and crystal clear, self-healing PUR surface won over an enthusiastic jury at the world-renowned Automotive Brand Contest. The ‘Future, Mobility and Parts’ award represents an important milestone in forward-looking exterior design. Read about our innovative ideas for meeting the new design requirements of Future Mobility:


Fading Lines

Award-winning product design
Red Dot Award 2020 for KURZ

At one meter, this concept panel is exceptionally wide. Its functionality is only evident when the driver activates the HMI panel by touch. The organically curved panel supports the driver intuitively. The single image produced using In-Mold Decoration (IMD) is recyclable.


IMD VARIOFORM® with In-Mold Labeling (IML)

Innovative spirit and top quality
Bavarian Innovation Prize 2020

Bundling the four processes of decoration, thermoforming, injection molding, and punching is a groundbreaking approach. By doing so, we achieve unprecedented performance levels when it comes to decorating smart three-dimensional plastic components with matching touch sensors.


Cloudy Feathers

Sophisticated Shy Tech design
ABC Award 2018

Cloudy Feathers is the award-winning day-night design of a three-dimensional, organically curved door trim. The tag design is reminiscent of a bird’s feather dress. A simple touch activates the backlighting, and the springs become technical-looking diamonds. The diamond color changes with a single swipe, creating a surprising new look. KURZ has implemented this fascinating Shy Tech design in its IMD process with capacitive PolyTC® touch sensors.
