The Danish export company Dan Dryer has a long tradition of supplying long lasting hand dryers to public toilets throughout Europe. Dan Dryer has now combined its classic intrinsic professional values with flair for new product design and trend setting to take its business to the next level and open doors to a new market.
A few years ago, it was decided to concentrate focus to appeal with design to architects at the project planning phase of a building. Dan Dryer invited a handful of designers to make a proposal for the upcoming product range. After screening, Dan Dryer chose Danish VE2 and the result became Björk. An innovative product range with a specific Nordic design unlike anything you will find on the market.
The requirements for quality, functionality and design all came together to give existence to the new collection of toilet equipment – Björk – that has just been awarded the prestigious international design prize Red Dot Design Award Best Of The Best 2017 for its baby changing station. The award is a quality stamp for ground-breaking design. Two years ago the Björk hand dryer also received a Red Dot Design Award for its stylish design.
Red Dot Best of the Best Award 2017
The jury states that the Björk baby changing station catches the eye with its elegant appearance. In line with traditional Danish design, the innovative, slim shape embodies a perfect reduction to the essential. In use, it impresses with its extremely high quality and well thought-out functionality. The Björk baby changing station meets the highest demands, offering a great deal of comfort for both infants and mothers. It is easy to clean and pleasant to the touch.
Simplicity and elegance
The design process of the baby changing station required two years. The goal was to design a hygienic and safe changing unit with an innovative and elegant look unlike anything that is available on the market. The challenge lies in the simplicity and the result is a surface extruded in one piece without joints, to prevent the settlement of bacteria. This construction is particularly appropriate in public toilets. Public areas are a main target area for Dan Dryer however the company wanted to preserve its one of a kind unique image.
