Kiel, 21 March 2024 – Cloudflight, one of the leading full-service providers for industrial digital transformation in Europe, has been awarded the iF DESIGN AWARD in the UX design category for the development of the interface design for DEBAG industrial baking ovens. 

The iF DESIGN AWARD is one of the most important and prestigious design awards worldwide for which thousands of designers, architects and companies have their projects evaluated by independent experts. To receive the award, companies must pass a strict two-stage evaluation process. Cloudflight stood out from a total of 10,800 submissions from 72 countries with its design for an innovative device control and cloud system. 

 “D-control combines the control of ovens as well as proofing and refrigeration devices in a universal operating concept and focuses on the task to be performed by the user,” says Kai Wunderlich, designer and project manager at Cloudflight. “With the D-connect cloud application, an interface was developed to connect all the clients´ DEBAG devices with each other.” 

“Thanks to the smooth interaction of the control system and cloud software from a single source, we can speed up and simplify retail processes – both for users of the respective device and for supervisors when maintaining and standardizing the devices,” adds Richard Schafranske, project manager at DEBAG.
