The Villeroy & Boch Tableware division can really be proud of their run of awards: the winner of the year is the new “it's my match” trend collection, having received the German Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award and the KitchenInnovation Award in 2019. The Collier vase collection also received a prestigious design award.
German Design Award
“it's my match” and Collier are both “Winner” of the German Design Award 2020. The jury, consisting of 39 experts, presented both ranges with this distinction in the “Excellent Product Design” category – “it's my match” in the “Tabletop” and Collier in the “Home Textiles and Home Accessories” sections. The German Design Award has been awarded by the German Design Council since 2012. The Council is one of the world’s leading competence centres for communication and brand management in the field of design. To be in the running for the German Design Award, the Council only nominates products with a design quality that stands out clearly from the competition.
Red Dot Design Award
The Red Dot Award: Product Design is a recognised seal of quality for excellent design and is awarded every year by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen. This year “it's my match” was crowned “Winner” in the Tableware category. After the award ceremony in July this year, the “it’s my match” collection was on display for five weeks at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany. The Collier design idea had already been awarded the coveted red dot in 2018.
KitchenInnovation of the Year
The “KitchenInnovation of the Year 2019” consumer award was given to “it's my match” in the “Kitchen Accessories” category for functionality, design and material quality, receiving also a “Special Mention”. The LifeCare initiative awards the “KitchenInnovation of the Year” where a jury of experts nominates the participating products and consumers then evaluate them.
The award-winning collections
The fuss-free “it's my match” trend collection was developed by young people for young people and consists of four multifunctional and versatile items: a bowl, serving bowl, mug and plate are available with three relief structures and in the on-trend colours of Powder, Green and White. They can be combined in many different creative ways and thus offer everyone the opportunity to create their own look of perfect imperfection.
The fine relief decorations of the Collier vase collection are inspired by opulent pearl necklaces and polished precious stones. Available in six models, the attractive vases are exquisite designer objects that impress with their matt surfaces in black or white.
