Franke’s Icon tap range, which launched in the UK in January, has earned international acclaim by winning two prestigious awards that recognise excellence in product design.
Icon has secured a coveted Red Dot Award in the Kitchen Taps and Sinks category and a sought-after iF Design Award in the Product Design category. Judges considered factors including design, functionality, quality, differentiation, innovation and impact when choosing the award winners.
The distinctive Icon tap combines sinuous, nature-inspired aesthetics and maximum functionality. Designed to make a unique, sculptural style statement in contemporary kitchens, the range comprises a Pull-Out Double Jet Shower model featuring an adjustable pull-out spray which allows users to easily switch between the single or more powerful double jet, and a Swivel Spout option. Both designs feature a built-in Neoperl Laminar aerator to reduce excess splashing and are available in a choice of three stylish finishes of Matt Black, Chrome or Décor Steel.
Jo Rawstron, sales and marketing director at Franke, says:
“We’re honoured to be recognised by the prestigious Red Dot and iF Design Awards for the Icon tap range which is a shining example of Franke’s commitment to developing kitchen solutions that combine design excellence and technical innovation. To be recognised among our peers by these international awarding bodies only confirms that we’re continuing to achieve our aims, particularly in our core business of sinks and taps.”
Recognising brands that have won an iF Design Award for their products for the past five years, Icon’s award secures Franke’s position in the iF World Design Index, being included in the iF Top 10 Switzerland and iF Top 100 Europe.
