Wiha is winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, the world-renowned design prize. The winning product, the Wiha Pliers Wrench Family, won in the discipline “Product”, in the “Industry/Tools”. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD.
The Wiha Pliers Wrench Family won over the 132-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its innovative and appealing product design of the buttonless, narrow shape concept.
This makes it much easier for professional users from industry and trade to access narrow and confined spaces during installations. Particularly smooth and parallel jaws also avoid damage to sensitive surfaces. Width adjustment directly on the workpiece makes work more efficient. A ratchet function enables fast screwing without regripping. Pressing & bending tasks take minimum effort thanks to manual force increased tenfold. After the German Design Award 2022, this is now the second international award for Wiha product development.
