Ideal Standard celebrates triple success at iF Design Awards

Bathroom manufacturer Ideal Standard has won three prestigious iF Design Awards for its new Solos, La Dolce Vita and Alu+ product ranges, which were created by renowned designer and chief design officer at Ideal Standard, Roberto Palomba.

The awards recognise excellence in design and innovation across various industries and entries are evaluated by an independent jury of experts based on criteria such as design quality, innovation, functionality, and environmental impact. This year’s competition attracted almost 11,000 entries from 72 countries, highlighting its global reach and significance.

Winning over the judges, Solos features a unique integrated combination of basin and fitting as well as a range of sophisticated showering solutions. Fine, straight lines and extremely thin edges give the basin its distinctive weightless look, while the sleek, fully integrated fitting completes the seamless, pure appearance. The shower products combine intuitive, smart controls with a variety of different spray modes and an integrated ambient light, to create a sophisticated all-in-one solution that provides a spa-like experience.

Also recognised by the judges was the La Dolce Vita® collection, which echoes the understated elegance of a relaxed Italian lifestyle. Launching later this year, this new series features solutions for the entire bathroom, from vanities and vessels, toilets, bidets and bathtubs to mixer taps, shower products and accessories.

The Alu+ range of shower products and beauty bars was the third collection to be awarded. Sustainability was prioritised during the development of this collection, with Alu+ created from high-quality recyclable aluminium, consisting of 84% recycled content. The range is completely free from chrome and nickel and includes water-saving technology that helps to reduce water consumption without sacrificing comfort. Practicality is central to the range, and Alu+  includes storage shelves and matching beauty bars, with mirrors and other storage solutions, making it ideal for smaller spaces. 

Jan Peter Tewes, chief executive officer at Ideal Standard, said: "We are thrilled to receive three iF Design Awards, which underscore our ongoing commitment to design excellence in the bathroom industry. These awards reflect our dedication to creating products that not only enhance the bathroom space but also enrich the lives of our customers through thoughtful design and innovation."

Roberto Palomba, chief design officer at Ideal Standard, added: “Design is all about making a difference to people’s lives. This can be through the aesthetic and the enjoyment of being in beautiful surroundings. It can be in the functional, where our experience of daily routines is made better. Or it can be in knowing our lifestyle choices are compatible with caring for our planet. All these things are considered in the creation of an Ideal Standard collection, and I am delighted to see this acknowledged by the iF judging panel with Solos, La Dolce Vita® and Alu+.”
