Red Dot: Best of the Best

The aesthetics of the clear line

Since a tumble dryer is typically installed as a functional unit with the washing machine, these two devices are usually designed in one product line. The Asko tumble dryer fascinates with a clear and timeless appeal, while its minimalist lines are oriented on the tradition of Scandinavian design. With its classic white colour and high-grade metal elements, it blends into virtually any environment. The user interface has been conceived in a natural left to right arrangement, facilitating the use of the tumble dryer and allowing users to easily trace the drying process. On the premise of making laundry care as easy as possible, the interface allows an uncomplicated navigation between the programmes. The programme list is flexibly adjustable, rarely used programmes can be hidden while frequently used ones can be saved as personal favourites. Durable buttons and a solid metal rotary knob give immediate feedback, guaranteeing a pleasant handling. With its markedly sophisticated design, the tumble dryer completes the laundry care equipment. Perfectly matched with the design language of the new Asko washing machine, it fascinates with an intelligent and conclusive ease of use, which newly defines the tumble-drying process.

Statement by the jury

»With a design focused on individual needs, this tumble dryer makes drying clothes a special experience. The straightforward and minimalist machine impresses with a user guidance that dispenses with any superfluous features but is simply fun to use due to its quick and comfortable operation. Its well-balanced design language in accordance with the high quality of materials lends the dryer a confident and professional appearance.«
