Icons are forever
“With our ‘Icons are forever’ campaign, we are paying tribute to these four legends, putting their unique functionality and timeless, universal design into the spotlight,” says Kit Ha, EMEA Marketing Director. “All OXO products are engineered to be better and guaranteed to last a lifetime, so the emotional message ‘Icons are Forever’ perfectly underlines our uncompromising attitude towards quality.”

For over 30 years OXO has paired innovation and purpose with award-winning product design to create household tools and gadgets that make everyday living better, every day. At Ambiente 2023, four OXO design icons were in the spotlight, alongside the new barware collection and seafood utensils.

To do this, OXO has been questioning the obvious for decades, closely observing how consumers interact with utensils and discovering the best solutions to everyday challenges through the love of detail. Innovative functionality meets unique design, guaranteed to last a lifetime and make everyday better, every day.
