Established in 1950, Good Design is one of the world’s best established and prestigious design competitions. The Good Design Awards is organised jointly by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. With these four new awards, VitrA now has a total of 44 Good Design Awards.
VitrA’s winning designs for 2021 included VitrA V-Care Prime and V-Care Smart Panel. VitrA also won an award for its Atelier 01 tile collection and Archiplan bathroom collection, launching later this year.
VitrA V-Care Prime shower toilet is the highly specified showering toilet in VitrA’s comprehensive showering toilet collection. V-Care Prime, designed by Arik Levy, is available in both wall-hung and back-to-wall models. It is sleek and compact and can be controlled via an app or through the handheld remote-control unit. Additional intelligent features include sensor ambient lighting, adjustable drying, multi-washing function and auto air purification.
VitrA V-Care Smart Panel uses digital sensor technology for the most hygienic and efficient WC flush available. The black glass flush plate with anti-fingerprint finish is easy to wipe clean. The panel has a Smart Flush feature which tracks WC contamination and then flushes using the appropriate amount of water which saves water. VitrA V-Care Smart Panel uses learning algorithms to find the optimum flush cycle. A useful eco mode also allows the user to select the volume of flushing water.
Margaret Talbot, marketing manager for the UK and Europe said, “The Good Design Award is terrific recognition of the work of Design Studio VitrA and the international designers we collaborate with to create products that consumers and specifiers really understand and appreciate.”
