Czech bathroom design impressed international experts once again
Products manufactured under the RAVAK brand, designed by Kryštof Nosál, received further acclaim in the field of international design. In one of the most prestigious and respected international competitions, the iF DESIGN AWARD, the 10° bathroom concept won over the other 388 products entered into the competition in the Bathroom category. At the same time, RAVAK became the only Czech company to have received this award in said category. The newly introduced Forms bathroom concept also achieved success, this time in the Czech national round of the EDIDA (Elle Decoration International Design Award) international competition run by twenty-five global editions of the Elle Decoration magazine. The concept shall go on to the international finals, the result of which will be announced in April during Milan Design Week.
Designer Kryštof Nosál has been working for the RAVAK brand since 2006, when their very first collaboration resulted in the iconic Evolution bathtub, which won the 2006 Excellent Product Award issued by CZECHDESIGN. A graduate of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, he received, among other awards, second place in the Electrolux Design Lab International Competition in New York and last year, thanks to his innovative talent, the RAVAK brand received the international Red Dot Design Award for the design of the 10° concept. His other work for RAVAK has been repeatedly nominated for the Czech Grand Design Award and his seminal Chrome concept became one of the most popular bathroom solutions on the current market. Kryštof Nosál is the creator of the majority of new RAVAK products.
Together, the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award represent the pinnacle of professional global competition in the field of design. This year's iF received a record-breaking 5300 applications from more than 50 countries around the world. An international committee of fifty-eight experts in the field voted for the products entered into the current season of the competition.
The EDIDA award is awarded by the individual national editions of the ELLE Decoration magazine in twenty-five countries. Elle Decoration is a quarterly magazine focusing on interiors, design, architecture and art and is issued as an affiliated publication to the fashion monthly, ELLE. One of the recipients of this year's EDIDA award, just like last year, is the creator of the Forms concept for RAVAK, Kryštof Nosál. "We are delighted to be working with Kryštof, as he is able to provide the central concept, new practical advantages and original style for even the most basic products, such as washbasins and bathtubs. We are extremely proud of these two new awards, since they validate our long-term strategy of investing in our own quality design, with a primary focus on comprehensive bathroom solutions," concludes RAVAK's Marketing Director, Jan Hudák.
