Among the prize-winning products, for example, was THE KETTLE (Heat Concepts, IDEO), a kettle in the form of a carafe, which doesn't need a handle because of its heat-resistant Ultrason material. This high-tech plastic developed by BASF is suitable for use at high temperatures of up to 220 °C. This means that the outside of the kettle can be touched at any time - even when the contents are hot - without the risk of a burn, while the transparent container means that the water can be seen bubbling as it boils.
An award also went to the Lyn lamp by Christophe Marchand Design. The jury was especially impressed by the successful combination of high-tech and charm, which is expressed by the textile lampshade which has been produced by the latest knitting technology. This knitted lampshade consists of a heat-resistant fabric which reflects the light, ensuring that it is not just diffused outwards but also radiates inwards.
