RRP $449

Eliminating creases is a breeze with the PerfectCare Aqua, the only steam system recognised at the 2013 Australian International Design Awards. The 2.2-litre tank means you’re not constantly refilling and the continuous steam option will change the way people iron their clothes forever — it’s fun too!

Philips Finesse: There is no dial on this iron — it can be used on multiple garments without having to change settings.

At the 2013 Australian International Design Awards, Philips received wide praise, receiving several awards and accolades across both Consumer and B2B categories. Chief Design Officer Sean Carney had this to say about their successes:

We are proud that our design-driven innovations can contribute to improving people’s lives while simultaneously receiving industry recognition. We are particularly pleased to see the design quality of the two home healthcare products being acknowledged in this way.

While MD Alan McCarthy added:

Philips has been improving the lives of Australians through innovation since 1926, and our continued success in the Australian International Design Awards is testament to our commitment to furthering good design.
