Keuco’s Axess range has received this year’s iF gold award in the bathroom product design category.
The iF Design Award is presented annually by International Forum Design in Germany, which sees more than 10,000 submissions from 70 countries every year. The range was given the gold award after being appraised by an international jury comprised of 133 members from 20 countries.
The Axess series of products, which was designed by Studio F A Porsche, is aimed at older generations or people with disabilities. Products in the range include a drop-down supporting rail, railing system, and bathroom stool, in a product offering that Keuco says “combines aesthetics and barrier-free functionality in a stylish and innovative way”.
Commenting on its decision to award the accolade to Keuco’s Axess rage, the jury said: “Studio F A Porsche demonstrates that bathroom furnishings intended for elderly and handicapped people can be both elegant as well as functional. Through its premium and timeless design, the AXESS drop-down supporting rail conveys a sense of security and reliable support, without clashing with the bathroom’s clear lines.”
In previous years, Keuco’s business and products have also been recognised in other kbb industry awards. The Keuco shower light was shortlisted for the Innovation Awards at kbb Birmingham last year, and Keuco’s area sales representative Neil Burton was also a category finalist at the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards in 2020.
