The Beale touchless faucet with Selectronic technology and the Edgewater semi-professional faucet, both from American Standard, have been 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.
Showcasing striking, contemporary design and superb performance, the Beale touchless kitchen faucet features hands-free control – when desired – with the unique option of switching to manual operation by simply sliding a movable door to cover the sensor. The Edgewater semi-pro kitchen faucet, highlighting smooth curves and strong design lines, offers an intuitive 4-function sprayer, plus pause feature, to help the user efficiently manage common kitchen tasks.
“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. Receiving this recognition from such a prestigious institution is a sincere honor and further reaffirms our corporate mission to make everyday life easier for our customers,” said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer of LIXIL Americas, the business unit under which American Standard operates.
