HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — For the fourth time since 2009, California Faucets won the Interior Design Best of Year (BoY) Award. This year, the company’s ZeroDrain “pop-down” lavatory drain was voted winner in the Bath Accessories and Hardware category.
ZeroDrain won top honors among more than 2,000 entries—a record-breaking number of submissions for the industry’s premier design award contest. Interior designers and architects placed more than 60,000 online votes, naming ZeroDrain the most innovative product in its category. Interior Design editor-in-chief Cindy Allen presented the iconic light bulb BoY Awards trophy before a standing-room-only crowd of over 950 design community members during the awards ceremony. The ceremony was held in December 2014 at the Frank Gehry-designed IAC Building, in New York City.
“Winning back-to-back awards from Interior Design validates our ongoing efforts to bring truly ground-breaking bath product to market,” said Noah Taft, SVP of marketing and sales at California Faucets. “ZeroDrain marks a leap forward in innovative sink drain design and technology, and it’s gratifying to know the designers and architects that specify our products agree.”
The award demonstrates the company’s dedication to breakthrough innovation in the bath accessories and hardware market. Before this month’s win, California Faucets received the BoY trophy in 2013 for StyleDrain Tile—a drain that allows the inlay of matching tile, in 2010 for CeraLine channel drain, and StyleDrain decorative shower drain received a merit award in 2009.
California Faucets believes in artisan hands, not mass production. Since 1988, its factory, in Huntington Beach, Calif., has manufactured bath products that can be easily customized or purchased exactly as shown in its catalog.
