Joseph Joseph Earns Red Dot, GIA And iF Awards

Thursday April 17th, 2014 - 12:07PM


Joseph Joseph has announced that it has earned three international awards for excellence in product design, quality and innovation. The accolades include a Global Innovation Award for its Twin-cut Compact 2-in-1 Scissors; a Red Dot Award for its Edge glass brush; and an iF Award for its TriScale folding digital scale.

For the first time this year the company entered the iF awards, which has been globally recognized as the consummate mediator between the design and business communities, the company said. The iF awards have three categories: product design, communication design and packaging design. Josephh Joseph's TriScale was recognized for its product design features, including a compact profile, touch-sensitive controls and Add & Weigh function, the company said. 

The Red Dot Award was given for the company's Edge glass brush, the company's ninth honor from the Red Dot in seven years. The Edge won as a result of its design, which includes a non-slip resting point that enables it to be stored on the inside edge of a sink, thereby saving space and allowing excess water and soap to drain away, the company said.

The gia Global Innovation Awards, sponsored by the International Housewares Association, were presented during the March International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago. The winning products, including the Twin-cut, were selected for their design quality, craftsmanship and brand positioning among other criteria, the company said. Judges included specialty retailers, consumer editors, independent designers and other design experts. 

“Thus far, this year has proven to be a very propitious one for the company, and we are honored to have received three such esteemed awards,” said Richard Joseph, managing director for Joseph Joseph.  “Everyone here at Joseph Joseph works very hard to design and produce outstanding products, and being recognized for that work is both humbling and gratifying.  We look forward to continuing our commitment to excellent product design and quality.”
