Small electricals supplier Kenwood has won Red Dot Product Design Awards for the Kenwood CHEF Sense and the Kenwood MultiOne.
The Red Dot is an internationally recognised quality seal, given to products that excel in the areas of product design, communication design and design concepts. Each year the competition attracts entries from around the world. In 2015, there were 4,928 entries submitted by 1,994 participants from 56 countries.
Kenwood industrial design team leader Jamie Weaden commented: “Kenwood’s products have won numerous design awards over the decades, but winning not one but two Red Dot awards is an especially prestigious achievement. Quality and design is always at the forefront of our minds when developing Kenwood models, so we’re proud to have been recognised for this through two of our key products.”
He said the Kenwood CHEF Sense “represents 65 years of evolution of the iconic Kenwood Chef model. The design reflects the changing needs of today’s consumer, and has been refined to guarantee optimum user experience”. The CHEF Sense stand mixer comes complete with a height-adjustable K-beater, whisk and dough hook baking bowl tools.
The Kenwood MultiOne has been designed to “incorporate the baking appeal of a mixer and the daily task of food processing in an integrated format”. All attachments, including the food processor, juicer and blender, are located on the central hub outlet, while its wide bowl and head lift design allows easy access when adding ingredients.
Jamie Weaden concluded: “What sets Kenwood apart from its competitors is the focus given to aesthetics while delivering the best user experience possible.”
