FRESHLY UNFOLDED

Are the environmental protection and sustainable paper production at odds with one another? According to the handmade paper mill, Gmund from Lake Tegernsee, the answer is a clear no. The traditional family business has been shaping paper culture since 1829: authentic, progressive, and sustainable. With ‘Unfolded,’ Gmund has officially launched the first design & print festival of its kind, entirely in the spirit of sustainability.

Are the environmental protection and sustainable paper production at odds with one another? According to the handmade paper mill, Gmund from Lake Tegernsee, the answer is a clear no. The traditional family business has been shaping paper culture since 1829: authentic, progressive, and sustainable. With ‘Unfolded,’ Gmund has officially launched the first design & print festival of its kind, entirely in the spirit of sustainability.
HAPPY GO LUCKY
For two days, our Green Window team was onsite and able to dive into the fascinating world of Gmund’s paper production. More than 700 visitors flocked to the Gmund factories to marvel at the latest methods of analog communication while surrounded by massive machines. A colourful spectacle took place in the factories, as agencies, artists, and representatives of the communications industry from all over the world gathered. For two grey November days, bright minds, colourful design ideas, and brilliant products illuminated the scene at Lake Tegernsee.

The highlight of the entire event? That would be the presentation of the ‘Gmund Awards 2018,’ with categories ranging from ‘art’ to ‘corporate’ and ‘packaging.’ Prizes were awarded in seven different categories. For us at Green Window, this part of the festival was particularly exciting, as Kathrin had the honour of taking part in the jury and participating in the award ceremony.
In addition to participating in the awards, we also organized a booth at the festival to give visitors a glimpse through the Green Window of the future and inform them about current Green Window projects. For years, we have been working in close partnership with Gmund on the development of sustainable product lines. Gmund has been regarded as a pioneer in the development of new, environmentally friendly paper manufacturing processes and always seems to be one step ahead of the competition. The company has recently developed yet another star product, the Bio Cycle paper, which is made of 50 percent resource conserving materials such as straw and hemp. It also celebrated its premiere at the Unfolded Festival.
NEW WAYS

Together with Gmund, we hold the vision that it is possible to keep the ecological footprint as small as possible, without compromise or sacrifice. Unfolded’s success has demonstrated how well it can work. We are very excited about the next joint projects and look forward to welcoming Florian Kohler back to the Greentech Awards Jury in 2019.
