Gold for Solid White at the German Innovation Award 2019

Johannes Schüle, Simon Walk, Patrick Müller und Christian von Bock (v.l.)

The Solid White agency of our graduates Patrick Müller, Christian von Bock and Simon Walk received the award for “The Virtual Design Center Interactive”. This allows their customer dormakaba worldwide to access VR multi-user events: These include virtual product launches, virtual product presentations and showrooms, virtual meetings and virtual information opportunities. In addition to collaboration, communication via voice chat and text chat is also available.

A fantastically implemented solution that makes many business trips obsolete, saving time and money and also providing a fascinating user experience. Makes you want to visit!
