Ideal Standard’s Joy & Conca, two products from its Atelier Collections and Intellimix have won two coveted international design awards, the Red Dot Award for Product Design 2021 and the iF DESIGN AWARD 2021.

Aesthetically, Joy draws from botanical grafts, with a single cast design ensuring a clean and modern piece that is easy to clean and available in four striking finishes: chrome, silver storm, brushed gold and magnetic grey. The sheer simplicity of Joy makes it extremely versatile, complementing both square and round ceramics and suiting a variety of bathroom styles.

The Conca Ceramics range is part of the wider Conca collection, which includes brassware, furniture and bathtubs.Organic curves and sensual details are central to Conca, with advanced technologies enabling not only new levels of purity in design due to the basin’s thin lines, but also an optimised and environmental conscious use of raw materials.

Roberto Palomba, co-founder of PS+A and Chief Design Officer at Ideal Standard, said: “We are delighted to have won these two very important awards, which recognise the hard work and dedication that has gone into cementing Ideal Standard’s position as a leader in design. These awards encourage us to continue along this path.”

Designed to dispense both soap and water with every use, Intellimix is 100 per cent touch-free, guaranteeing improved hygiene standards in public washrooms. Ideal for offices, leisure facilities and other high-traffic environments, such as shopping centres, hotels and restaurants, the fitting has a clean, modern design and is also environmentally friendly, saving on resources and reducing waste.

Frederick Trzcisnki, Marketing & Innovation Director at Ideal Standard MENA, said: “We are delighted that Intellimix has been recognised by awarding bodies so revered in the design community. For years, these awards have shone a light on the very best in design and we’re proud to be amongst their recipients this year. Now, more than ever, shared spaces need to be designed to protect users’ health and well-being. Winning these awards is a clear acknowledgement that Intellimix represents an important step forward when it comes to raising hygiene standards in public washrooms, while of course improving sustainability and enriching the handwashing experience for end users.”
