The Tefal Pro Express Ultimate steam generator has garnered a 2020 iF Design Award in the product lifestyle category.
The lightweight ergonomic iron which locks into the steam generator for easy carrying and storage won over the 78-member jury, made up of independent experts from around the world.
A comment from the jury read: Pro Express is Tefal’s top end steam generator linen care product. It is designed to cut ironing time with a high steam output, optimised glide ability and easy operation…the clean and friendly form belies the technical complexity and capability within. Tefal needed to modernise their top end generator to counter the threat of rival ‘faux-steam generators’ and to emphasise the internal high-pressure boiler at the heart of the product. The design had to work hard to reduce unit cost yet secure high quality.
Each year, iF International Forum Design GmbH organises the iF Design Award and this year’s awards attracted 7,298 entries from 56 countries.
