California Faucets has been recognized for innovation and cutting-edge design with a 2021 Good Design Award. The award program organized by The Chicago Athenaeum to honor industry leaders in design and manufacturing recently announced the 2021 winners, which includes California Faucets’ High Flow Rate Single Handle Tub Filler. With a flow rate previously only available in two-leg styles, the new, streamlined single-hole solid brass tub fillers not only look sleek and elegant, but they’re also efficient enough to fill a large tub in a record-breaking less than four minutes.
“We’re proud to be recognized by the world’s oldest, most distinguished program for design excellence and innovation,” says California Faucets President and CEO Jeff Silverstein. “Historically, single hole tub fillers looked nice but were not very practical because the weak water flow left much to be desired,” Silverstein explains. “Our team worked tirelessly to engineer single-handle models that innovatively offer elegant, streamlined looks without sacrificing a superior flow rate. A proverbial ‘win-win,’” says Silverstein.
Founded in 1950, the award created by Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames saw a record number of submissions in 2021. The High Flow Rate Single Handle Tub Filler was one of over 1,100 category entrants from over 55 nations.
