LIXIL achieves a monumental 21 Red Dot Design Awards in 2018 alone! Here’s the full breakdown…

The Red Dot Design Awards has awarded LIXIL with 21 honours this year. The awards, which celebrate exceptional design performance, recognised six of the company’s product brands: INAX, GROHE, American Standard, LIXIL, DXV, and SATO. The winning entries were each awarded for their intuitive functionality and innovative technology, with one particular product even receiving the esteemed ‘Best of the Best’ award…

This top award went to INAX’s Ecocarat wall tiles, which help keep indoor humidity levels comfortable and reduce household odours, such as from toilets, cigarettes and pets.

LIXIL President and CEO Kinya Seto commented: “At LIXIL, we use the strength of our global in-house design teams to make intuitive and beautiful products that matter to people and improve our homes. We are proud that our unique brands were recognized today for their meaningful designs, and will continue to strive to make better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.”

Other winning products include the American Standard NextGen Selectronic Faucet, which has inbuilt scald protection technology to protect users from burns; the LIXIL Fullfall shower, which brings the luxury of Japanese bathing to everyday showering; and the DXV Modulus Widespread Faucet with a two-tone finish, designed to give a personalised effect.

SATO, a brand of innovative and affordable toilet products, also received an Honourable Mention for its new V-Trap toilet system. Launched last year in India, the V-trap toilet system significantly reduces the amount of water required to flush and prevents clogging for twin-pit latrines.
