Good Design Australia Best of Category Award Winner
After receiving a Good Design® Selection Award, Everdure by Heston Blumenthal has gone on to receive a Best in Category Award for the Charcoal Range, in the Product Design: Domestic Appliances category.
On receiving the Good Design® Selection for Everdure by Heston Blumenthal Charcoal Barbeque Range, the Jury commented:
“Flawless design. 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 applauds the clever solution devised for the rotisserie feature”.
The Charcoal range includes a number of world-first innovations, including a Fast Flame Ignition System™ within the HUB™ and FUSION™ models to ignite charcoal at the press of a button, as well as the Rotiscope Technology™ featured in the integrated rotisserie, allowing adjustable rotisserie heights and powered by a discrete motor.
The Everdure by Heston Blumenthal Gas Barbeque Range also received a Good Design® Selection, with the jury commenting:
“Beautiful, considered design from every perspective. This is a great example of what
professional design can bring to a crowded market segment. The Jury applauds the use of
materials including aluminum, colour options and modular grilling zones. Brilliant”
In launching this product range, the Everdure by Heston Blumenthal team sought to improve the barbeque experience by merging inspiration, experimentation and rigorous testing with design. We are very proud this approach has led to Everdure by Heston Blumenthal receiving a Good Design® Selection for both the Gas & Charcoal Barbeque ranges, and a Best in Category Award for the Charcoal range.
Mike Westrup CEO of Shriro Holdings, which owns the Everdure by Heston Blumenthal brand, commented,
“I’m absolutely delighted that our products are being recognized by professional bodies worldwide, as well as by consumers. It just reinforces our belief that design is a major factor in consumer decision making and inspires us to keep moving forward”.
