Ballerina wins German design award

German kitchen manufacturer Ballerina Küchen has won the German Design Award 2018 for its Y-Kitchen.

The Y-Kitchen was chosen for its innovative products, which are “seminal” in the national and international design sector.

The Y-Kitchen shows that kitchens, especially kitchen islands, are the “central communication platform” in homes.

Ballerina introduced the Y-Kitchen in 2016 at its in-house fair and was later presented to the public at the 2017 LivingKitchen fair in Cologne in January.

The kitchen was developed in collaboration with Berlin-based designer Michael Hilgers.

“We are very happy to receive this award,” said Ballerina managing director Christian Käsemann. “It is a real selling point. The 2012 initialized German Design Award belongs to the most recognized design contests worldwide and is very prestigious. To achieve this award against top-class competition means that we successfully stand in the forefront of innovation.”
