K-Bana modular pergola Big winner: Outdoor Furniture Category
The Vesta Awards had several categories such as home products, outdoor products, and a special award category. In the category of outdoor products, you can find the section of outdoor furniture.
Azenco was the big winner of this section, with its innovative K-Bana modular pergola design. This modular design surprised the judges who appreciated the creativity and high-quality standards that meet the needs of the market.
The K-Bana pergola design was without a doubt the center of attention. Thanks to its incredible versatility the K-Bana seduced the attendees as well as the judges. Its multiple configurations of modules and panels combined with twin-wall louvers are unique in the market. For all these reasons, the high-quality product is technically very performant and only requires a few hours to be installed. It allows to perfectly control the rays of solar light and it offers protection against winds, rain, and even snow at the same time.
When the ground is unstable, the modular pergola, K-Bana is equipped with a base with extendable posts that allow stabilizing it.
