Methven Wins Two International GOOD DESIGN™ Awards

Methven, New Zealand’s largest designer of shower and tapware, has been awarded two   GOOD DESIGN™ Awards by the Chicago Athenaeum International Museum of Architecture and Design.

The world’s oldest and most prestigious global awards for new product design and graphics, the GOOD DESIGN™ Awards are given for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product and graphic designs produced from around the world.  The Awards attracted several thousand entries from over 48 countries.  

Methven’s Koha Satinjet® Hand Shower and Waipori Satinjet® Hand Shower were each awarded a GOOD DESIGN™ Award for Design Excellence in the Bath and Accessories category.

According to Kent Sneddon, Methven’s Design Director, the global awards reinforce the quality of Methven’s in-house design thinking and execution.

“The Awards confirm Methven’s position as an international design leader and also demonstrates that a New Zealand based company can succeed on the global stage alongside major companies like Apple, BMW, Phillips, Adidas, Boeing and the like,” Mr Sneddon said.

“We are thrilled that our passion for design has been recognised globally and we will continue in our pursuit of design excellence to deliver amazing shower experiences.”
