Schock’s Mono D-100 sink wins Red Dot design award

The Mono D-100 sink model from Germany’s Shock has won the prestigious Red Dot design award in the product design category. Besides looking great, the sink scores particularly highly on functionality. The Mono D-100 boasts a harmonious combination of the tough, easy-care, hygienic Cristadur material that looks and feels good and a classic design that is perfect in form. The Mono D-100 has a large, deep bowl making it easy to wash even the bigger pots and pans. The long tap-hole platform can be equipped with up to five holes, offering plenty of space for a control knob for the pop-up waste, a soap dispenser and more in addition to the tap itself. An LED light can be fitted into the sink as an optional extra, ensuring not only excellent light for doing the washing up but also providing an optical highlight in the sink area.

Thanks to consistent investments in research and development, the sink’s German manufacturer, a company in the SME sector, has been able to systematically expand its position as a reliable and innovative producer and supplier on the international market over the years. “We develop sinks and taps for people who demand more when it comes to design and who value products featuring durable quality and style,” says Sven-Michael Funck, director of Export and Marketing at Schock.“That’s why product design is so very important to us, and we set great store by the constant enhancement of our production processes and materials. By adopting this approach we are able to keep design and functionality at a high level and steadily expand our innovation and technology leadership to the benefit of our customers.”

The Red Dot design award is one of the best known international design competitions. Products are judged by an expert jury of renowned designers and design experts from around the world and need to meet the highest standards of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product peripherals, clarity of function and ecological compatibility. The strict judging criteria are constantly adapted to reflect state-of-the-art knowledge on formal, technical, manufacturing, social, economic and ecological aspects.
