This design recently recognized with a coveted Red Dot Award Product Design works in a contemporary kitchen or a traditional kitchen, living as a statement piece in both environments. Luxury fittings brand Brizo secured the prestigious, global accolade for innovative design with its Artesso Kitchen Collection. With nearly 5,000 entries from 56 countries this year, the internationally-respected Red Dot Awards are one of the most important design industry accolades.
“For 60 years, the most-respected design experts have been convening every year in Essen to seek out the best designs,” said Professor Dr Peter Zec, Founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award. “The laureates of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 have demonstrated exceptionally high achievements and have thus been deservedly successful in the world’s largest design competition.”
“This esteemed recognition from Red Dot confirms the Brizo brand’s commitment to living fashion through high-quality, world-class products,” said Sarah Schlifke, Brizo product marketing manager. “Inspired by early 20th century metal works, the Artesso collection inspires designers and builders alike with its industrial yet refined form which offers a chic and functional focal point for the counter space.”
The name for the Artesso kitchen collection by Brizo is a variation of the Portuguese word for “artisan,” reflecting the masculine, hand-forged design nuances that artfully merge with sophisticated aesthetics. The full kitchen suite features a single-handle pull-down faucet, a two-handle bridge design, a sleek bar faucet and a matching soap dispenser. The single-handle pull-down faucet is available with optional Brizo SmartTouch Technology, allowing users the option to activate the flow of water with a simple touch anywhere on the spout, hub or handle.
The full kitchen suite is available in the following finish options: Polished Chrome, Brilliance Stainless, Venetian Bronze and Brilliance Polished Nickel finishes.
