Gaining three accolades across its sink, tap and cooker hood categories, Franke has demonstrated an exceptional performance at the Red Dot Design Awards 2022, one of the most important international design competitions that recognises excellence in product design.
Franke has secured the coveted awards in the Product Design Category for its newly launched All-In flexible food preparation system, Maris Bowls Fragranite sink range and Smart Suspended cooker hood. Judges considered factors including design, functionality, quality, differentiation, innovation and impact when choosing the award winners.
Franke’s new All-In food preparation system, pictured, is designed to transform any kitchen sink into stylish and ergonomic workstation. It features eight versatile accessories, made from sustainable and hygienic materials, which maximise workspace and support workflow. The system has already been recognised by Germany’s Kitchen Innovation Award 2022 in the Kitchen Equipment category.
The minimalist Maris Fragranite Undermount sink range is made from hygienic and durable Fragranite, and reflects the trend for coloured finishes with its availability in four on-trend shades of Matt Black, Stone Grey, Polar White and Coffee, while the Smart Suspended cooker hood makes a statement with its on-trend lamp design in Matt Black, Matt White and Stainless Steel.
Jo Sargent, sales and marketing director at Franke, says: “We are honoured to receive multiple Red Dot recognitions this year again. At Franke, we strive to create products that become benchmarks in terms of design excellence, cutting-edge innovation, quality and next-level functionality, and to be recognised across our sink, taps and cooker hoods categories confirms that we are succeeding in our aims to develop integrated home solutions that respond to our customers’ needs.”
