Blanco’s Blanco Artona was named a 2017 Red Dot award winner in the Product Design category. Manufacturers and designers from around the world were invited to enter their products to be judged by a jury of 40 independent designers, design professors, and special journalists. The 2017 competition received more than 5,500 entries from a total of 54 countries.

“The launch of Artona was an extremely iconic moment for Blanco and to see it receive such astounding recognition with the Red Dot award is a great honor," said Tim Maicher, marketing director for Blanco. “Liveable faucets like the Artona are such an essential addition to kitchen design and to win an award within a competition that is so heavily focused on design and innovation shows just how special the Blanco Artona really is.”

The Artona faucet with pull-down spray is offered in a variety of dual finishes to coordinate with Blanco’s Silgranit colors as well as full chrome and stainless models. It also offers both kitchen and bar/prep models and has different spray models for water conservation.
