FIMA Carlo Frattini confirms once again its leading position in the fittings and taps industry thanks to the high level of design and innovation of its products and by winning the esteemed “Red Dot” Prize to the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017.
The jury, composed of 40 international main members of the design world, was attracted by Skinny, designed by Meneghello Paolelli Associati, the kitchen mixer characterized by its contemporary design, innovation and best functionality for a daily use.
As an expression of an advanced engineering development, Skinny is able to add value to any kitchen and to entirely fit in with every style, giving a perfect balance of modern and ergonomic beauty. The new mixer is characterized by a slim body that gracefully soars to 220mm height, connecting smoothly the diameter of the spout with the integrated base. The morphing of its surface is asymmetrical, designing a flat shape that allows the fluid insertion of the cylinder, where the 35mm cartridge is placed, and makes the mixer look thin and constant for its whole height.
Another special feature is the lever, a new unconventional interpretation of a “perforated” lever that joins a greater functionality of an ergonomic grip to a clean and elegant design.
Since 1955 the Red Dot Award is a definition of excellence, innovation and design originality for industrial products, concepts and communication and represents an extremely important and prestigious award at international level. Skinny of FIMA Carlo Frattini has been selected among thousands of products coming from 54 countries and it will be shown within a permanent exhibition in the Red Dot Design Museum and published in the Red Dot Design Yearbook.
