Villeroy & Boch designs impress judges: Clever Baking, Siluet and Collier scoop design awards
A total of three products created by the Villeroy & Boch Tableware designers were awarded prizes this year. The Clever Baking Bundt cake mould and the Siluet kitchen sink impressed the KitchenInnovation Award 2018 jury and the new Collier vase scooped the Red Dot Design Award.
Clever Baking and the Siluet ceramic sink – innovations for the kitchen
Precise design with delicate lines – Villeroy & Boch’s Siluet is the first ceramic sink made from the unique TitanCeram ceramic material. With its clear yet sensual design, a narrow mounting rim, corners with a small radius and a straight-lined bowl interior, Siluet is perfect for kitchen design aficionados. Having impressed experts and consumers alike in the innovation, product benefit, design and material quality criteria, the sink was given the “KitchenInnovation of the Year” award and named “Excellent Product”.
In addition to the Siluet kitchen sink, the two-piece Bundt cake mould from the Clever Baking range was also named “KitchenInnovation of the Year” and received the Golden Award for the best overall score, making it the Best of the Best in the Baking Utensils category. What makes the two-piece Bundt cake mould so special is the removable inside part, which enables easy greasing and even baking. The inside part can also be used as a measuring cup. The ceramic mould is naturally heat-resistant, dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe and freezer-safe.
Timeless jewellery for the home: “Collier” vase collection inspired by pearls and jewels
Graceful craftsmanship for fresh flowers – the new Collier vase collection from Villeroy & Boch is inspired by the beautiful world of jewellery. The exclusive design of the vases is inspiring: Collier was awarded the Red Dot Design Award in the Product Design 2018 category. Wrapped around the Premium Porcelain vases, the fine reliefs with understated structures create a sophisticated look: the “colliers” seem to taper off over the curvature. The matte finish and puristic elegance of the six black and six white models accentuate the colourful splendour of the flowers while providing them with a decorative stage.
