The Whirlpool freestanding 4 Doors fridge freezer (WQ9 B1L) has been honoured with a prestigious 2019 Red Dot Award for high quality design and innovation.
The Red Dot Awards is one of the world’s largest design competitions and is organised by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany. Product Design entrants are judged by an international jury of designers, leading academics and respected journalists. Judges seek out distinctive, high quality products that epitomise the Red Dot Awards’ mission ‘in search of good design and innovation’. From 5,500 entries in total, the 2019 Red Dot Product Design Award winners will be formally celebrated at a special ceremony that will take place on 8th July in Essen, Germany.
The award-winning 4 Doors fridge freezer (WQ9 B1L) is finished in stainless steel and boasts a contemporary design with elegant slim fit doors in addition to integrated handles, which complement popular handle-less kitchen cabinetry. What’s more, the external full-width black interface offers a stylish and intuitive user experience.
The American-style side-by-side fridge freezer from Whirlpool also benefits from 6TH SENSE® FreshLock technology. The innovative technology monitors, adapts and controls the refrigeration temperature to ensure an optimal environment for storing fresh food. While in the freezer the adaptable FlexiFreeze compartment has three different settings for users to choose the freezing requirement depending on the type of food being frozen.
Michela Giorgetti, Cooling Category Manager, Whirlpool, says: “We are truly honoured to be recognised once again with the distinguished Red Dot Award for Product Design. Our success is a testimony of our continued dedication to design excellence, which is at the heart of all we do. Outstanding design is fundamental in creating products that enhance our consumers’ lives, whether through advanced performance that make everyday tasks effortless or contemporary aesthetics that complement even the most stylish of homes.”
