Hobart’s newest range of warewashers has landed a highly significant iF Design Award, a world-renowned mark of excellence, given for functionality and aesthetic, and judged by an international panel of over 60 design experts.
The award for best Product was given out by Germany’s iF International Forum Design GmBH, who lauded the range’s appearance, uniqueness and levels of innovation.
The new glass and dishwasher models have been designed around the core values of simplicity and performance. The range benefits from key innovations, drastically cutting drying times, enhancing the user experience via single button operation, improving efficiencies across the board and for the first time providing a fully connected wash experience by way of Hobart’s innovative new WashSmart app.
Tim Bender, Sales Director, Hobart Equipment Division, said, “Established in 1953, the iF design award has grown to become one of Germany’s foremost barometers of form and function.
'We’re delighted, therefore, that our newest range has been recognised in such a way. The development of the new undercounters represent a true leap in innovation, but have resulted in our smartest, simplest, most intuitive design so far. A true testament to our R&D process.”
The awards were held at BMW Welt in Munich with the gong being collected by Hobart’s Harald Disch, Director of Warewash Engineering Europe and Global New Technologies and Dietrich Berner, Director of Manufacturing (pictured left to right).
Hobart UK has now aligned its Warewash and Cooking divisions into one single sales and administration operation known simply as the Hobart Equipment Division.
