Ahlen, July 2015. – At the Iconic Awards 2015 the German Design Council recognised the new KALDEWEI washbasins for their unique design quality with a stunning four awards. In addition to the Centro washbasin series, KALDEWEI Cono and Puro were named “Winner” as compelling complete solutions comprising washbasin, enamelled shower surface and bathtub. Special credit was given to the Silenio product series designed by Anke Salomon: washbasin and bathtub received the coveted “Best of Best” label.
“We are delighted that so many of our bathroom solutions made of KALDEWEI steel enamel were singled out by the jury at the Iconic Awards. This recognition is a reflection of our high design standards and our resolve to offer comprehensive bathroom solutions,” says Arndt Papenfuß, Head of Marketing at KALDEWEI, adding, “With the washbasins made of steel enamel, KALDEWEI opens up a new chapter in bathroom design – the whole bathroom, from bathtub and shower surface to washbasin, can now be styled with a coherent design vocabulary in one material and quality.”
The award ceremony will be held at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich on 5 October 2015. The Iconic Awards are presented by the German Design Council, which has supported the business world in all aspects of design for more than 60 years and is one of the world’s leading centres of expertise on design. The prestigious award acknowledges the integrated and consistent presentation of products in all fields of architecture, the construction and property sectors, and the manufacturing industry.

Silenio countertop washbasin and Silenio bathtub. The washbasin and bath of the Silenio product series distinguish themselves by their sensually modern design: The soft, organic interior shape of the Silenio washbasin culminates in a narrow, precise washbasin lip that echoes the natural, fluid lines of the Silenio bathtub. This harmonious design was selected by the jury of the Iconic Awards 2015 for the coveted “Best of Best” award.
