GERMANY - No fewer than two newly developed products from Hettich have attracted the prestigious iF Design Award this year: in the "Kitchen" category, the jury awarded prizes to the slimline AvoriTech drawer system and the Quadro runner for dishwashers.
Modern luxury kitchens are defined by minimalist aesthetic appeal, exclusive materials and their particular quality in terms of finish and functionality in every last detail.
The AvoriTech drawer system with its slimline 8 mm drawer side profile and rear panel meet precisely these demands from discerning kitchen buyers in the high end segment.
Designed specifically for this permanently moist environment, Quadro runners used in the dishwasher when it comes to performance and durability: the racks move in and out very smoothly and with effortless ease.
This controlled, linear movement goes particularly easy on dishes and glasses, with the optional Silent System soft closing mechanism also gently moving the rack into the home position.
When loading and emptying, the over extension runner provides convenient access over the rack's entire depth. This makes optimum use of space because the Quadro's compact, slender design keeps to the sidelines, providing maximum dishwasher rack volume.
A further benefit is the system's hygiene factor in everyday use: with the Quadro profiles being open in structure, food residues are simply flushed out and can't get stuck.
