Kenwood wins Gold in iF Design Awards 2016
Kenwood has been awarded an iF Gold Award and three iF Design Awards, leading to the company entering the iF hall of fame, as it is now ranked 33rd in the latest international iF listings.
The Gold Award-winning Kenwood Chef/Chef XL Titanium (KCV70/KCL80) was entered into the Product Discipline and Kitchen Category. The machine is due to launch in the UK in September 2016.
The iF judges commented that the product displays an incredibly high standard of material finish. “It is a beautiful match of unobtrusively elegant design, precision, versatility and power. This is a product that is built to last – an important aspect that makes it a sustainable design. The professional look is further emphasised by other well thought-out functionalities. The whole device is a winning combination of refined detailing and iconic design.”
Kenwood’s Triblade System PRO hand blender, Cooking Chef kitchen machine and kCook MULTI food processor also received 2016 iF Design Awards in the Product Discipline and Kitchen Category.
The hand blender and food processor are due for launch in the UK in September this year; the UK launch date for the kitchen machine has yet to be confirmed.
Jamie Weaden, Industrial Design Team Leader at Kenwood, said: “Kenwood’s products have consistently won numerous design awards over the decades, and the iF Gold Award for the Chef Titanium follows last year’s Gold success with the Chef Sense. Kenwood celebrates being one of the very few British brands to receive this Design Oscar, and the only British brand to receive it in the last two consecutive years.”
