On 24 October, the Polish Institute of Industrial Design (IWP) awarded a top prize in its Dobry Wzór (Good Design) contest to one of Prevex’s bathroom water trap designs, the EasyClean. The fact that our water trap took the prestigious prize in the Home category makes us very happy. We are delighted to be recognised for our innovative solutions also in Poland, the second home of Prevex.
Our award-winning EasyClean water trap – which was nominated to the competition by IWP experts – was finally selected as the winner by an independent jury of 15 professionals. This panel of experts was impressive, consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Enterprise and Technology, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as well as architects and designers, art school professors and the President of the Friends for Integration Association.
A water trap for the 21st century
The motivation for presenting the award clearly stems from the fact that EasyClean is a game-changer in the world of water traps. The product was recognised as an innovation, which, with its highly functional design, changes our concept of what we thought was possible in water trap design. “We made a water trap for the 21st century,” said Maria Jeppsson who accepted the award on behalf of Prevex Poland.
