The KitchenAid Iconic Fridge has been honoured with a coveted iF Design Award 2018.
The iF Design Awards is one of the world’s largest and most highly respected design competitions. Selected by an international jury of 63 design experts, the organisation sees over 6,400 entries from 54 countries around the world who compete for a coveted iF label for outstanding design achievement.
The coveted iF labels are presented annually to products that demonstrate outstanding achievement in design by the International Forum Design GmbH, Germany’s oldest independent design organisation. Submissions are awarded based on the following disciplines: Product, Packaging, Communication and Service Design, Architecture and Interior Architecture as well as Professional Concepts.
Inspired by the timeless and instantly recognisable KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer, the Iconic Fridge has been conceived from the outset as a new design classic. Iconic by name, and an icon in the kitchen, this award-winning design excites through its finely crafted details and harmonic proportions.
The Iconic Fridge invokes a sense of heritage with a beauty that is timeless. Through its elegance and durability, the appliance embodies KitchenAid’s guarantee of artisan craftsmanship, attention to detail and fine materials. The exceptional design can be seen in every detail – from its full metal door to its chrome handle and plinth.
Alexander Smith, Business Development Manager, KitchenAid says: “The iF Design Awards is one of the world’s foremost design competitions and it makes us incredibly proud to receive this award. The iF Design Award is recognised as an arbiter of quality for exceptional design. KitchenAid appliances are the perfect expression of professional performance, artisan quality and iconic design and this prestigious accolade epitomises our brand DNA.”
