Design Event

Here you can find all the information about the past Jansen Telescope Design Event: Take a look at the international project presentations or the keynote speech on the topic of design by Prof. Dr Ulrich Knaack. You will also find here the recordings of the product presentations.

Christoph Jansen (GL/VR) and Stefan Röthlin (CTO) immersed themselves in the topic of design together.

They answered questions such as:

  • How does Jansen ensure that architects have maximum design freedom?
  • Which material is particularly sustainable and contemporary?
  • How can the needs of visitors be reflected in the design?

The interview, moderated by Ilka Mellert, is available here.

During the product presentations focusing on functionality and safety, materials and design freedom as well as filigree elements and transparency, you can delve even deeper into the Jansen range. Click here for videos featuring our Jansen specialists:

  • Function and safety, presented by Flavio Chistell
  • Material & design freedom, presented by Michaela Hanesch
  • Filigree elements and transparency, presented by Ron Jacobs

In a series of project presentations, you will find out about innovative uses of the Jansen products in line with the most exacting aesthetic standards, whether at the Winery Wagram (AT) and St. Bavo’s Cathedral (BE) or in the Werk 12 (DE) and the Jansen Campus (CH). The architects and metalworkers responsible for these projects will take you on a virtual tour of the properties.

Why facade engineering also requires design skills? Prof. Dr Ulrich Knaack gave us an answer to these and many more questions in conversation with our Senior Marketing Manager Ron Jacobs.

“What does ‘design’ mean to Jansen?”

Creative freedom, fliligree constructions and user-centred design

For Jansen, design means striking the balance between functionality and aesthetics. We combine well-engineered functionality with practical handling of the products in order to create an appealing visual effect. A building should offer residents and users the greatest possible comfort and protection, but should also fit well into its surroundings, illustrate a certain concept and be convincing in terms of form. As a versatile material for windows, doors and façades, steel is ideal. It is malleable and highly stable, timeless and elegant, durable and sustainable. It is equally suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces and can be used in both new buildings and renovations.
