Methven Kiri Satinjet ultra low flow shower wins Green Good Design Award
Methven - the global designer and manufacturer of premium showers and tapware - is celebrating yet another award win after its Kiri Satinjet Ultra Low Flow Shower won a 'green' medal in the 2011 Green Good Design Awards from The European Centre for Architecture Art Design & Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture & Design, the largest and oldest awards for contemporary design in the world.
The Kiri Satinjet ultra low flow shower became available in the UK and Europe earlier this year. Judges praised the shower for its sophisticated design, superior performance and impressive water and energy saving credentials.
Using just 5.7 litres of water a minute to deliver thousands of droplets per second with its Satinjet twin-jet technology, the Kiri Satinjet ultra low flow shower is a single function design with smooth bevelled edges that intersect with rectangular and circular forms, which give it the characteristic Kiri design signature. The sculptured look of Kiri Satinjet is crisp, sleek and highly modern and suited to domestic and commercial environments.
Judges were inspired by Kiri's ability to protect the environment, conserve resources and encourage sustainability by saving remarkable amounts of water and energy. They also appreciated the great life expectancy of the product with its lifetime parts guarantee.
Methven UK CEO Steve Lee comments: "Delivering life-enhancing showering experiences that are kind to the planet is what Methven is all about. We design with resource conservation in mind believing we have an important role to play in understanding the social and political context of our products and the long-term impact they have on the world.
"It's a great honour to see the Kiri Satnjet ultra low flow shower receive such an esteemed award as the Green Good Design Chicago Athenaeum. It is another fantastic endorsement of our innovation in design and technology. We are one of a select few to win this award across many thousands of entries globally and the achievement is testament to our commitment to be the leading global brand, recognised and loved worldwide for delivering superior, life-enhancing shower experiences."
The Kiri Satinjet ultra low flow shower joins a string of other award-winning Methven products including the Tahi Twin-Lever Tapware - winner of a red dot design award 2011 - and the Tahi Satinjet Shower System, which won a Green Good Design Chicago Athenaeum award in 2008.
Established in New Zealand in 1886, Methven - with offices in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, the UAE and the Far East - has earned a deserved reputation across its international customer base for designing and manufacturing innovative, high quality, and water and energy efficient products.
