They are handed out for films, series, advertising, literature, science and in many other fields: awards. The award ceremony we are talking about today revolves exclusively around kitchens and bathrooms. The initiator has been the leading business magazine for kitchens and bathrooms for 30 years, kbbreview. The ceremony for this year’s kbbreview Retail & Design Awards was held few weeks ago at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. And the best news is: We have won the Award in the category “Kitchen Product Innovation of the Year” for our prototype, the FUSICS table, and took this beautiful trophy to Mainz.
The FUSICS table
Functionality, urbanism, sustainability, illumination, connectivity and social experience – in their acronym FUSICS – are our cornerstones. We have laid out the glass-ceramic cooking surface using these megatrends as a basis. The result is a free-standing cooking table that is perfect for convivial get-togethers.
The heart of our table is, of course, the glass-ceramic on which the cooking and eating takes place. The table furthermore features an interactive cooking app on a multi-touch display. A dynamic list of ingredients and matching tutorials turn cooking into an interactive experience. This proximity to the digital world launches the COOKING FUSICS table into the future of cooking.
Another innovative feature is the Near-Field Sensor. This sensor uses built-in lights to mark cooking areas as soon as the cook comes near. Moreover, another achievement is concealed behind our FUSICS table: an 8-zone bidirectional induction stove. Its surface reliably wards off daily challenges with our scratch-resistant SCHOTT CERAN Miradur® cooking surface. The FUSICS table has been presented at the London Design Fair 2017. The glass-ceramic materials and features of the table are already available for the household appliance industry.
We are overwhelmed and proud and we thank our partners who helped us to realize this prototype and the sponsors, hosts and jury members of the KBBreview Retail & Design Awards 2018. You are the best! Thanks for having us. You can find more about the event here: http://www.kbbawards.co.uk/
