In the category “Product – Kitchen”, we brought the iF Gold Award home to Mainz with our light portfolio CERAN EXCITE®. We accepted our prize on March 15 at the BMW Welt in Munich in front of about 2,000 invited guests. The jury statement was a real tribute:
“These lighting solutions for cooktop panels are a groundbreaking innovation. The intensity of the colors and size of the light indicators not only add style to cooktops, but also boost user friendliness and functionality.”
The award reaffirms our constant thinking outside the box and shows that we, as pioneers in glass-ceramic, are on the right track. Our product was selected from those of many other contestants.
Under expert scrutiny
A 67-head jury from more than 20 countries bestowed the 66 best candidates with the coveted iF DESIGN AWARD. More than 6,000 submissions were subjected to the scrutiny of experts. The categories evaluated covered the entire spectrum of the design landscape, from product design to packaging and interior design.
The peak of design
The iF DESIGN AWARD was first given out in 1953 and for many years has been a symbol around the world for exceptional design. Every year designers, agencies, builders, architects, and many other design aficionados and companies submit their ideas.
All entries currently awarded, by the way, can be found in the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE and the iF design app. We would also like to congratulate all the other winners on their outstanding design accomplishments.
