TORONTO, May 13 /CNW/ - A new kitchen faucet from Blanco has won the
2011 Red Dot product design award, a highly prestigious international
award that recognizes product innovation and design excellence.
Designed in Germany by Blanco, the Culina faucet was selected from more
than 4,000 products from 56 nations.
The Blanco Culina faucet is a semi-professional style with a tall
arching flexible coiled spout for easy manipulation and reach in the
sink. Among the breakthrough features recognized by the award program
are its unique closed coil design and a practical magnetic attachment
for the hand-spray.
The faucet was introduced internationally earlier this year and in
Canada in January at the Toronto Interior Design Show. It will be
available to the Canadian market this spring from selected showrooms
"Many consumers at the Toronto design show earlier this year, loved the
closed-coil design of the Blanco Culina," says Alexandra Marshall,
director of marketing with Blanco Canada. "The tight coil creates an
exceptionally elegant and streamlined look but the spring is also very
flexible and practical."
The magnetic feature allows for quick release and attachment of the hand
spray, another characteristic that consumers liked, Ms. Marshall notes.
"Blanco is dedicated to kitchen technology," she adds, "and with more
than 85 years of experience in manufacturing, we have developed unique
expertise in kitchen product design."
Since its introduction the faucet has also received two other
international awards including the KBCULTURE award and IDEA award.
