Jura was among thirteen housewares suppliers recognised as Global Honourees of the International Housewares Association (IHA) Global Innovation Awards (gia) for Excellence in Product Design, taking out the award in the Kitchen Electrics category.

The Global Honorees in each of the 13 categories were announced during the invitation-only gia dinner on the first evening of The Inspired Home Show 2022 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“We are thrilled that the Jura Z10 has received further recognition for its ground-breaking innovation and design, this time as a recipient of a Global Innovation Award for Excellence in Product Design, at this year’s IHA Awards in Chicago,” Jura Australia managing director, George Liakatos said.

“This product continues to deliver, not only with its world-first hot and cold brewing technology, but also with its stunning visual appeal. It has been one of our most successful product launches, even against the backdrop of challenging trading conditions throughout 2021. The product development team in Switzerland continue to deliver and I know the pipeline for new innovations and product is full of exciting new developments.”
