Two new iF Design Awards for Unidrain Reframe Collection
Unidrain tells us it is delighted with its two new iF Design Awards; for products from its Reframe Collection of bathroom accessories; the corner shelf and the toilet brush.
Designed by Kenneth Waaben, the Unidrain corner shelf was selected as the best product in the Bathroom Fitting discipline and the toilet brush was awarded the iF Design Award under the Bathroom Accessory discipline.
The toilet brush from the Reframe Collection is a reframing of a classic design. However, with this specific product, a great deal of thought was given to hygiene and ensuring that the design could work with both a wall-mounted and a floor standing product.
The inner plastic container has a splash guard, which extends over the outer cover and ensures that no bacteria can get in between the two; in addition to this the inner container is fitted with a 'tap' to make it easy to empty the container without coming into contact with bacteria. The brush head is designed to collect as little water and paper as possible, thus reducing unwanted dripping of toilet water.
The Reframe corner shower or bath shelf is ideal for smaller bathrooms, whilst still providing adequate space for essential bathroom products.
This adjustable shelf is made from reinforced steel sheet for increased stability and has thin grooves, which ensures that water does not accumulate. On the top of the shelf there is an anti-slip barrier to hold things in place when the shelf is wet.
The smart suspension gives the shelf a light and almost floating expression, it is this suspension which also provides an innovative feature which allows the shelf to be adapted to corners that are not exactly 90 degrees.
"We are delighted to have been awarded not one but two iF Design Awards for our Reframe Collection," enthuses marketing manager Birgitte Arendsdorf Olsen. "The Unidrain ethos and attention to detail that is prevalent our linear drains was incorporated into the Reframe Collection by designer Kenneth Waaben in the most exciting way, which we are sure has helped us secure these marvellous awards."
