Good Design 2019 - CERSANIT wins the award
“Good Design” is the most prestigious Polish competition, organised by the Institute of Industrial Design. This year marks the 26th time that awards have been conferred on the most talented designers for work distinguished both by modern design and functionality.
The products and services taken into consideration were indicated by the Institute’s experts and researchers, based on constant surveying of the market. This year’s winner in the “Public Sphere” category is the CREA collection urinal designed by Mirosław Zapora, a long-time designer for the Cersanit brand.
“I am immeasurably pleased to announce that the CREA urinal won the Institute's “GOOD DESIGN 2019” award in the “Public Sphere” category. Its novel design and functionality won the jury's appreciation and award. It is probably the first thin-walled, rimless urinal in the world – and this fact has been noticed as well. The award makes us even happier, especially as the jury for the competition, mostly female, expressed its appreciation of a typically “masculine” product, which I emphasised upon the award's reception, while at the same time thanking both the Institute and Cersanit, the latter for allowing me to implement such designs. I also hope that this award will make a sound contribution to expanding Cersanit’s presence in public spaces,” said Mirosław Zapora – Designer.
The CREA urinal is distinguished by its aesthetic values and high levels of usability. The lack of an inner rim allowed the creation of a smooth, ceramic shape – owing to this, the urinal’s surfaces are easy to clean, for enhanced hygiene and cleanliness. The urinal is complemented by a ceramic plug, creating a harmonious design form.
“The urinal unites unique functionality with visual values – a subtle and stylistically-neutral, yet elegant form, making a good match for most architectural styles. The simplicity of the fully-visible rimless interior gives it an aura of sterility, so important in public spaces, and facilitates its operation. Made of damage-resistant material, the urinal is distinguished by its durability, exceptional surface smoothness and resistance to residue formation,” said one of the Institute's experts.
