The Edison Best New Product Awards™ are among the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, design and innovation. The Edison Awards have received a record number of entries in 12 categories for 2011 and BLANCO’s award-winning SOLON is a Nominee in the Best New Product category.
The Awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose methods and prodigious body of work garnered him 1,093 patents and made him a household name.
A panel of more than 2,500 senior business executives and academics from across the nation will vote for the winners with the Awards presented at a gala function in New York City on April 5, 2011.
BLANCO SOLON has already captured numerous honors this year including: Interior Design BOY, iF Award, DPHA Innovative Product of the Year and an Innovative Green Design Award.
Exciting news! Want a sneak peak at the new products BLANCO will launch at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in April? Then check out our new 2010 BLANCO Showroom, Consumer and SILGRANIT® II literature collection – available right now via true e-brochure format. Click on the links in this article or from the navigation tab above marked e-brochures to view, download, share and enjoy!
The new 2010 Literature Collection:
SHOWROOM CATALOG: Our new showroom catalog features ARCON™ on the front cover. It is a truly powerful sink design that works well in any décor including a traditional setting.
CONSUMER BROCHURE: We are featuring our award-winning new RONIS™ sink on the cover with one of our favorites – Grey Goose. This picture demonstrates RONIS’ tremendous versatility and its incredible accessories which earned it a 2009 iF Award. The difference between a showroom catalog and a consumer brochure is that the brochure has less of the SKU/spec details. It’s more of an overview to help consumers select the right products for their home and is a perfect mailer or handout. The showroom catalog is an in-store piece that supports showroom and design professional with more detailed information.
SILGRANIT II BROCHURE: BISCOTTI is the new SILGRANIT II color! A delicious new neutral – BISCOTTI goes with today’s popular counter top colors. (Shown on both faucets and sinks.) Beyond its ultra durable non porous formulation, BLANCO SILGRANIT II is unarguably the largest and most design-oriented collection of colors and styles for composite sinks on the market today.
They are among an elite few: Products that have won two of the world’s most prestigious design awards, the international IF Product Design Award and in the U.S., the Good Design Award.
In the product design world, Apple, BMW and Blanco have become synonymous with fine design.
Building on that legacy of world-class design, Blanco today is unveiling MicroEdge, an innovative concept based on the award-winning SteelArt design. Crafted and engineered with ultra-fine 1.0 to 1.25 mm sink rims, MicroEdge frames an elegant edge with flowing transitions, a dramatic look that elevates the sink to star status in the kitchen.
More than just good looks, MicroEdge features savvy installation options, enhanced front-to-back depth and smart utilization of space. It is that rare combination of stylish lines combined with top-notch performance that has earned Blanco recognition for creating some of the world’s best-designed products.
Blanco will lift the curtain on the MicroEdge today at the opening of the 7th DPHA Annual Conference in Phoenix.
