Joseph Joseph has scooped a prestigious Red Dot honourable mention design award for its TriScale folding digital scale.
This year’s Red Dot competition saw 1,865 manufacturers, designers and architects from 54 countries enter 4,662 works, all judged by a panel of 37 leading design professionals.
“In 2013 the jury of the Red Dot award was once again looking for the best products and projects of the year,” commented Professor Dr Peter Zec, founder of the award scheme.
“With Joseph Joseph’s elaborate and innovative design, they have proven their know-how and competed with the best in the industry.” He added, “The Red Dot jurors recognise particularly well-executed aspects of design work with the ‘honourable mention’ award”.
The Red Dot award is one of the most prestigious design awards a product can receive, and this is the eighth award in six years for Joseph Joseph (including ‘Best of the Best’ for its Pie kitchen timer in 2011).
Founded in 2003 by brothers Richard and Antony Joseph, the kitchenware company has grown from a small business into a global operation with stockists in 83 countries.
The Red Dot honourable mention award is the second award for Joseph Joseph in what is proving to be another successful season in its 10th-anniversary year.
Richard and Antony Joseph will be giving a presentation on the theme of ‘The risks and rewards of taking an innovation approach to housewares design’ at the Housewares Conference on April 16 at Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire. For more details and to book tickets, go to www.housewaresconference.net.
The TriScale folding digital scale’s three arms provide a stable platform on which to place bowls and other items for weighing. When the arms are closed, the unit folds down to a compact size, enclosing and protecting the screen and controls, for storing in a kitchen drawer. The scale features a LCD display, touch-sensitive controls and an Add & Weigh function.
