Methven secures Red Dot Product Design Award
Methven has won a 2016 Red Dot Award for product design for its Aio shower featuring Aurajet technology.
Aurajet uses water deflection to create fan-shaped sheets of water. The showerhead's hidden nozzles generate single jets of water that produce a wide, even shower spray with no gaps and enhanced droplet density, delivering up to 20% more total spray force and twice the amount of skin contact - yet using as little water as nine litres per minute - continuing Methven's commitment to savings on water and energy bills for consumers.
With greater spray force and body coverage, the shower also offers a better feeling of warmth.
The Red Dot Award was founded in 1955 and is regarded as the international seal of outstanding design quality. The 2016 awards attracted a record number of entries with 5,200 products from 57 countries vying for Red Dot honours.
Martin Walker, CEO of Methven UK, says: "We're absolutely delighted to have secured the prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award for our Aurajet Aio showers. Securing this global design prize proves Methven products are able to compete technically and commercially with the very best and it will serve to further enhance our growing international reputation."
