The Beale touchless faucet with Selectronic technology and the Edgewater semi-professional faucet, both from American Standard, were named 2016 GOOD DESIGN award recipients in the Kitchen category for design excellence. The award is presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.
“Earning two GOOD DESIGN awards this year for our innovative new kitchen faucet offerings speaks volumes about the talent and dedication of our incredible product design and engineering teams,” said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer of LIXIL Americas, the business unit under which American Standard operates.“We continually strive to raise the standard in the industry by developing groundbreaking new products and technologies that make life healthier, enjoyable, and more comfortable.” El Kharbotly added.
The Beale touchless kitchen faucet features hands-free control with the option of switching to manual operation by simply sliding a movable door to cover the sensor. Delivering wave-on/wave-off functionality, this faucet helps reduce the risk of cross-contamination in food preparation. Its Selectronic proximity technology delivers dependable, touchless operation to improve hygiene, while also making it easy to access the faucet when the user’s hands are full or dirty.
The Edgewater semi-pro kitchen faucet is equipped to help the user manage common kitchen tasks. This kitchen sink faucet offers a 4-function sprayer, plus pause feature, that put even the most demanding home chefs in full control. The American Standard SelectFlo patented spray technology allows users to toggle down into spray mode and rotate the selection dial to the desired spray pattern.
GOOD DESIGN is the world's oldest design programs. Each year, The Chicago Athenaeum presents the GOOD DESIGN Awards, based on whether or not a product can enrich society and people's lives through its design.
