Red Dot: Best of the Best

Flowing elegance

Even in olden days, the washing area often featured an impressive design. Noble marble washbasins virtually beg for an artistically matched stand or a cabinet made of wood. The aim in designing the “emco touch” was to merge the elements of mirror, washbasin, storage space, light and running water to form a perfect unity. The washbasin, in premium-grade mineral cast, thus sits on a square cabinet element with glass sides and front, while LED lighting around the mirror gives the unit its own distinctive look. The elegance of this washing area solution is complemented by an innovative operating concept. The outlet is integrated into the mirror area and operated by a pivoting lever set into the washbasin countertop, and the LED lighting of the illuminated mirror cabinet is switched and dimmed via an integrated touch sensor. A sensor-controlled energy-saving LED light strip underneath the cabinet body helps users find their way around the bathroom in the dark. The concept of “emco touch” offers different options for individual configurations. Allowing users a free hand in the design, the unit comes in two different styles: alongside a purist version, the mirror frame is also available in a classic design as either chrome-plated or varnished in high-gloss black. With its refined operating comfort complemented by clear design elegance, the washing area is here reinterpreted with a highly enticing im-pact – a design that stages a different feel for life.

Statement by the jury

»Sophisticated functionality merges with refined style awareness. The “emco touch” washing area solution consistently translates geometric shapes into an outstandingly elegant overall concept. Different product models with distinctive styles offer additional leeway for interior arrangement creativity. The design catches the eye and clearly enriches the aesthetic quality of the washing area.«
