TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - The new Culina kitchen faucet from Blanco
has been awarded the 2012 iF (International Forum) product design
award, a highly prestigious international award that recognizes product
innovation and design excellence. Designed by German sink manufacturer
Blanco, the Culina faucet was selected from more than 4,300 products
from 48 nations by 44 judges to win the prestigious award.
The new faucet is a tall semi-pro style faucet with a tall arching
flexible coiled spout and a highly contemporary design. It features 360
degree swivel movement for extended range of motion, a dual-spray
function and a magnetized attachment for the insulated hand-spray. The
faucet was introduced internationally earlier this year and was a
feature at the Toronto Interior Design Show in January. In Canada the
faucet is available in chrome or a stainless steel finish with
contrasting black accents on the hand-spray and handle.
"The flexible tightly coiled spout helps to make this faucet
exceptionally elegant and gives it a streamlined look," says Alexandra
Marshall, Director of Marketing for Blanco Canada, "but it is also much
more practical than faucets with an open coil where dirt can get
trapped in the gaps. Consumers have told us they like this feature very
The magnetic feature allows for quick release and attachment of the hand
spray, another characteristic that consumers liked, Ms. Marshall adds.
Since its introduction the faucet has also received three other
international awards including the RED DOT award for product
excellence, KBCULTURE award and IDEA award.
Family-owned since 1925, Blanco is world renowned for as leader in the
design and manufacture of innovative products and systems in kitchen
technology and other fields. Blanco brands include SteelArt, Silgranit
