iF Award


iF product design award

For decades, products have been presented with the iF product design award for their outstanding design.

The BCTM 9100 PT built-in oven from Bauknecht has been honoured with the product design award 2012 at this year’s iF awards ceremony. In addition to the purist aesthetics of the oven with integrated handles in the KOSMOS design line, the appliance’s eco-friendly PureClean technology was able to convince the jury.

Thanks to the comfortable ease of its functions, the BCTM 9100 PT can be cleaned in no time at all – and without the need for chemicals. What’s more, with its special PureClean enamel coating and Nano technology on the inside of the oven door, the PureClean cavity can be wiped clean in an environmentally friendly manner – simply using water.

In Year 2011, built-in oven BLPM 8100 PT, built-in microwave EMCHD 8145 PTand built-in steamer ESTM 8145 PT from the Bauknecht KOMFORT line received the award from the panel of experts.

The flat design and a new user-interface concept characterise this line of built-in appliances, which stands for Bauknecht’s new-generation product design and which perfectly blends in with every modern kitchen and interior décor.

When designing these household appliances, Bauknecht paid particular attention to their durability – not only in terms of the appliances themselves, but also regarding their design. That’s because consumers who purchase an oven today, for example, would prefer a modern design – which remains timeless and attractive for many years to come.

The iF award panel recognized this and evaluated additional criteria such as design quality, selection of material, environmental friendliness, functionality, ergonomics, brand value and branding.
