For “flawless” design.

The Everdure by Heston Blumenthal charcoal barbeque range can add yet another trophy to its collection. It has taken out the ‘Best in Category’ Domestic Appliances Award for Product Design at the 2017 Good Design Awards, held in Sydney last night.

Jury comments cited the flawless design stating: “Every detail of this product has been meticulously designed with the end user in mind. The unique aesthetic will set this range apart from anything else on the market”. The jury panel also applauded the clever solution devised for the rotisserie feature.

Good Design Australia chief executive, Dr Brandon Gien, said the awards had attracted innovative entries from all corners of the world, with an “incredibly high standard of commissions this year”. And for the first time, the overall winner of the Good Design of the Year Award was awarded to two finalists: Aurecon for its Flood Resilient and Accessible Ferry Terminals for Brisbane; and a New Zealand entry Chrometoaster for its Awesome card game for young students.

The Everdure by Heston Blumenthal range features three charcoal barbeques designed to suit any occasion. It comprises the Cube, a compact portable barbeque and two larger charcoal units, the Hub and Fusion featuring patented Rotiscope technology,  for quickly setting up a commercial-quality rotisserie at three different heights, all powered by a discrete motor.

Earlier this year the Heston Blumenthal range took out two coveted European awards, the Red Dot Product Design ‘Best of the Best’ award for outstanding design and the IF Design Award for its charcoal and gas ranges.
