"Best of Best" twice for the BLANCO sensor mixer tap

Great honour for Solenta-S Senso


The new sensor mixer tap by the sink and mixer tap specialist Blanco was presented with a top-class design award from the German Design Council shortly after it was launched on the market. Having received the "Iconic Awards: Innovative Interior 2018", the premium mixer tap now belongs to the exclusive circle of the "Best of Best". "With its sensor-controlled, contactless control, Solenta-S Senso offers maximum ease of use in the contemporary kitchen," was the verdict of the six-strong jury.

At almost the same time, the mixer tap was also voted "Kitchen Innovation of the Year 2018". The LifeCare Initiative follows a slightly different approach, and primarily allows consumers to make a decision. After nomination by a jury of experts, consumers rate the products. And here too, Solenta-S Senso was ranked among the "Best of Best" and received the "Golden Award".

The Solenta-S Senso impressed the juries both with its professional appearance and the sensor control that is integrated in the spray arm – an innovation in this market segment. Above all, the finely adjusted proximity detector provides consistently precise reactions with no errors. It also includes a safety cut-off that is activated after 90 seconds. The spray hose changes over from clear to shower spray at the touch of a button and is ergonomically docked to the shower arm by means of a magnetic attachment. Solenta-S Senso also functions in manual mode, and is available in two finishes, including the new "UltraResist".

"We are delighted to have received these two awards," said Marketing Director Udo Heckelsberger during the presentation of the Kitchen Innovation Award in Frankfurt/Main. "With its contactless start-stop function and other extremely useful comfort features, Solenta-S Senso quite clearly reflects the spirit of the times." The fact that consumers also perceive this visually and haptically highly exclusive mixer tap as a premium product, as proved by the unanimous vote, confirmed to Udo Heckelsberger that Blanco fully understands its customers' requirements and also applies its keen understanding of the market to develop products which have an enthralling shape and function, and also offer a permanent added value.

Top position twice: the premium mixer tap Blanco Solenta-S Senso with a contactless, sensor-based start/stop function and other sophisticated comfort features received two major awards for design and innovation in quick succession. The first was the "Best of Best" at the "Iconic Awards: Innovative Interior 2018" by the German Design Council. The LifeCare Initiative named the sensor mixer tap from the market leader for kitchen mixers as the "Kitchen Innovation of the Year 2018". In this case it was also voted "Best of Best" in its category and received the "Golden Award".
