AXOR received Gold in the 2017 German Design Award ceremony in Frankfurt. The award was for the AXOR Citterio Select kitchen tap – jointly developed with long-standing design partner Antonio Citterio.
An international jury of experts rated 4,058 products and projects submitted, with the aim of selecting, presenting and honouring unique design trends. All in all, only 45 design products were recognised with the Gold Award.
According to the jury, “The AXOR Citterio Select kitchen tap is a successful example of the perfect interplay between form, function and material. Thanks to outstanding ergonomic features, a pleasing feel, useful functions and intuitive controls, the tap is suitable for use by all ages. An exceptionally elegant product, which is formally and functionally impressive at an extremely high level.”
The Axor Citterio Select kitchen taps offer both amateur and professional chefs an elegant opportunity to enjoy cooking. The kitchen mixer version with the swivel spout and the variant with the pull-out spout both offers plenty of freedom of movement around the sink unit, since they can both be swivelled 110°/150°. The advantage of this is that the user can channel the water exactly where you need it.
Silke Giessler, Head of AXOR Brand Marketing, says, “We are very pleased with our first German Design Award in Gold for an AXOR kitchen tap. The award is an important recognition of our achievements in design, manufacturing and functionality. It confirms our strategy of producing bathroom and kitchen taps, showers and accessories to perfection; to achieve this, the development process does not end until there is nothing left to add or remove.”
