LUMBERTON, NJ, December 2013 – BLANCO, the German manufacturer of finely crafted sinks and faucets, is a 2013 Interior Design Best of Year (BOY) Honoree for the beautiful BLANCO MODEX sink. MODEX has been highly recognized this awards season for its distinct raised profile, cubic style and innovative draining system including the following: iF, Product Innovation Award (PIA), Good Design Award, KB Culture Award, 2013 IDEA (International Design Excellence Award) and a Red Dot International Design Award.
BLANCO has been recognized by the design community with six Interior Design BOY awards in the last five years for MicroEdge, SOLON, RONIS, CULINA, CRYSTALLINE and now MODEX. (Three of the six were BOY Winners.) BLANCO is the only company to have been a five-time finalist in the “Kitchen Fixtures” category at the BOY AWARDS. BLANCO also holds the record for BOY Winners in the same category.
Part of the BLANCO SILGRANIT® II family, MODEX features a unique 3” profile that sits above the counter and offers a generous amount of task space thanks to the dual draining design and large integrated cutting board.
Qualified interior designers and architects selected BOY product design finalists during a two-week period in October via an online vote, and category winners were determined by a jury of leading architects and designers. According to Interior Design, over 64,000 votes were tallied in this year’s competition. More than 900 people from the design community attended the BOY awards celebration hosted by Interior Design Magazine, on December 5, 2013, at the IAC Building in New York City.
