Multiple Red Dot wins for Everdure by Heston Blumenthal
Excellent! Everdure by Heston Blumenthal FUSIONTM, FURNACETM and FORCETM barbeques win Red Dot Awards for high quality design.
Monday 10th April – Following on the success of the HUB winning a coveted Red Dot Best of the Best Award, the Everdure by Heston Blumenthal FUSION charcoal barbeque and FURNACE and FORCE gas barbeques have also received Red Dot distinctions. With the FUSION, FURNACE and FORCE barbeques, Everdure by Heston Blumenthal have created outstanding design that the expert committee for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 has recognised with the internationally sought-after seal of quality.
Heston Blumenthal said “I am truly honoured that the FUSION, FURNACE and FORCE have won the Red Dot Awards. For me the design approach was the same as any dish – inspiration, experimentation and rigorous testing.”
Whether you're new to cooking on charcoal or a seasoned pro, you'll love the simplicity and style of the FUSION, the latest charcoal barbeque from Everdure by Heston Blumenthal. With a feature set equivalent to the HUB you can rest assured that the FUSION is the perfect balance of function and form.
Featuring Fast Flame Ignition System™ there's no more messing around trying to get the charcoal started and with the patented Rotiscope Technology™ you can quickly set up an authentic commercial-quality rotisserie for cooking over the charcoal at 3 different heights.
Featuring sleek sturdy legs, the FUSION also incorporates an elegant freestanding pedestal that can be used separately as a table thanks to the integrated bamboo top.
If you’re all about the convenience of gas cooking, you’ll love Everdure by Heston Blumenthal's FURNACE and FORCE barbeques. Moving the power of modern kitchen appliances outside, the stylish, yet compact barbeques have been designed to help you put on a great show, time after time.
Ready to cook in just 5 minutes, you'll love the fast ignition with instant searing while the slender contemporary taps put the variable flame control at your fingertips.
Made from an easy-to-clean, die-cast aluminium body that won’t rust, the integrated, flowing design is finished in a range of contemporary colours.
“In my mind design quality is taking something complicated and presenting it as effortless and that is what we have done with the entire Everdure by Heston Blumenthal product range,” said Heston.
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award: “The Red Dot winners are pursuing the right design strategy. They have recognised that good design and economic success go hand in hand. The award by the critical Red Dot jury documents their high design quality and is indicative of their successful design policy.”
The significance of the international design competition, Red Dot Award: Product Design, with its headquarter in Essen, Germany is well established internationally. It was already more than 60 years ago that a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. Since then, an expert team has been awarding the seal of quality for good design and innovation to the outstanding designs of the year.
Manufacturers and designers around the globe were invited to enter their products in the 2017 competition. The jury of around 40 independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists tested, discussed and assessed each individual product, awarding the Honourable Mention for a well-conceived detail solution, the Red Dot for high design quality and the Red Dot: Best of the Best for groundbreaking design. In total, the competition received more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries this year.
Red Dot: Best of the Best laureates receive their trophies in front of around 1,200 guests during the Red Dot Gala award ceremony in Essen, Germany on 3 July 2017.
