At Franke, we are passionate about successful design, intelligent functionality and outstanding quality when it comes to our products. A range of Franke products has already been awarded sought-after prizes by independent juries.
The F5 fittings range from Franke has already won the PLUS X AWARD 2019 in four categories: High Quality, Design, Operating Comfort and Functionality. This visually and haptically stunning line of washing and shower fittings was presented with the world's largest prize for innovation by an international expert jury.
It was awarded yet another seal of approval in May. The F5 series was named Best Product of the Year 2019 because this line of products won awards in more categories than any other range.
But even that wasn't enough: As the most successful brand in the fittings category, Franke received the Best Brand of the Year 2019 special prize!
The new RONDAtop countertop washbasins have been nominated for the German Design Award 2020! RONDAtop was nominated in the 'Excellent Product Design' class of the competition in the 'Bath and Wellness' category by the German Design Council.
The German Design Award recognises the manufacturers and designers of innovative products and projects that represent pioneering developments in both German and international design.
The VARIUScare washbasin was among the winners of the ZVSHK 'Bathing Comfort for Generations' award that was presented by the German Central Association for Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning (ZVSHK) at the ISH 2019 trade fair.
