Four iF Products Design for Miele domestic and commercial products

Four iF Product Design Awards has been assigned to Miele’s products, including which of the commercial division of the company with two lab washer series and the compact washing machines from the Little Giants series. The prize-winning products also include the elegant Aura 3.0 cooker hood for domestic kitchens.
Every year, the awards are handed out by the world’s oldest independent design institution, the iF International Forum Design GmbH in Hanover. In this case, a 78-strong international jury of experts selected from 7298 submissions from 56 countries.
When it comes to commercial washing machines from the Performance Plus range, it is obvious that these are not domestic machines simply by looking at the high-quality stainless-steel fascia. The underlying technology was designed to cater for much higher levels of strain. This is accompanied by extremely short cycles, high-level efficiency and choice materials for excellent product longevity. These models are available for load capacities of 6, 7 or 8 kg and are operated using a touch display with texts in up to 32 languages.
Miele’s new large-capacity lab washers from the PLW 86 series reduce the burden of work, thanks to an intuitive touch display and three-colour lighting in the chamber, allowing the machine status to be easily visible from a distance through the all-glass door. Innovative components, such as a variable-speed circulation pump which reduces consumption and the new EasyLoad system ensuring particularly fast and convenient loading, are instrumental in achieving this.
Slim on the outside, flexible on the inside just about sums up the free-standing lab washers from the SlimLine series, offering ample space in the chamber in a product which is only 65 cm wide. Optimum use of the chamber is facilitated by up to three sets of telescopic runners which can be used at four different positions. This creates additional loading flexibility and allows the cleaning of large-volume laboratory vessels with a capacity of up to 50 l.
The design of Miele’s Aura 3.0 island cooker hood, finally, is an elegant and efficient product. Its brilliant white canopy with a diameter of 70 cm is reminiscent of a flat cupola. Virtually invisible controls and a power supply via the delicate wires suspending the canopy unit round off its elegant appeal. Dimmable LED lighting (A-rated energy efficiency) and automatic Con@ctivity were further reasons for granting the iF Product Design Award.
