The Caroma Marc Newson collection has won the coveted Good Design Award of the Year, announced recently at the 2014 Good Design Awards gala night in Sydney. The collection also took out the Good Design Award in the Housing and Building category.
“We are delighted that Caroma and Marc Newson have been presented with these prestigious awards – the pinnacle of design awards in Australia – against very strong international competition,” says Dr Steve Cummings, Research and Development Manager at GWA Bathrooms and Kitchens.
The judges praised the collection, saying, “This bathroom range is a great example of how a good designer, with the enthusiastic support of a determined client, can enhance the usefulness and appeal of just about any product. The range is exquisitely designed and made. These products function smoothly and are beautifully resolved – certainly a great example of form following function. The materials, graphics and mechanisms are up to date and the execution is faultless.”
The 22-piece collection features baths, mixer taps, showers, toilet suites, basins and urinals. Each piece has been meticulously designed by Newson and his team, using high-quality materials and advanced engineering by Caroma.
Products are fully compliant with Australian bathroom product standards, and are available in various product options that offer flexibility to suit a range of budgets. The collection can be viewed at Caroma’s new online industry professional space, specify.caroma.com.au. The site features great tools for architects, designers, specifiers, developers and builders, including a unique specification tool, complete BIM model library and the latest product information. The site hosts case studies and application packages detailing products to suit a range of commercial projects.
