Ballerina Design Award 2015

At the start of the house fair 2015 the first Ballerina Design-Award powered by Resopal was presented to the winners. The kitchen designs were assessed in the three catagories (monumental, Boldness in colour and small spaces).

Monumental: 
Resopal kitchens are long-lasting and resilient, sturdy, reliable and stylistic. Simply due its high quality they can be inherent part of the interior fittings. Like stones made for a lifetime, timeless beautiful finds its space in the landscape. Ballerina awards the most classy Resopal kitchen in the surface “ceramic”, monumentally integrated in the complete kitchen concept.

Boldness in colour: 
In the 50’s the colourful RESOPAL brought colour in the sadness of the postwar period. Today Ballerina asks for “boldness in colour” and awards the best white Resopal kitchen which “shows true colours” in the accessory part and in decorations.

Small Spaces: 
The daily challenge of kitchen designers is to create much space, much area and free moving space on smallest ground area. Therefore Ballerina awards the best kitchen concept which uses the small room cleverly.

For the international jury it was not easy to make a decision on the awarding. They focussed on 9 different designs out of all these Original Resopal kitchens. Also the "Best of the Best" Design-Award was presented under the first 3 winners. During the Ballerina VIP-party - which took place on 19th September 2015 - the certificates and trophies were given to the winners coming from several countries.

Ballerina Design Award 2016

At the start of the house fair 2016 the Ballerina Design-Award powered by Kesseböhmer was presented to the winners. The kitchen designs were assessed in the three catagories (Design for BASE UNITS, Design fpr TALL UNITS and comfort).

Design for BASE UNITS: 
A real space - a gain in comfort for every kitchen – the base unit pull-out in different variations.
Flexible in design, large use in space - goods in storage clearly visible and easy to read.
Therefore Ballerina awards the best kitchen concept which reasonably uses the space in the base units.

Design for TALL UNITS:
The tall unit pull-out, the ideal storage space for the kitchen – 7 days a week, for 24 hours. It's all about comfort, overview and easy access.
Now Ballerina asks for the most creative tall unit area which composes an ideal symbiosis of functionality and optics.

Comfort: 
High functionality combined with sophisticated design? This must not be a contradiction in the modern kitchen. Both „Liftboy“ as well as „ergoAGENT base“ stand for optimal accessibility and easy handling with elegant movements.
Countless possibilities for the comfortable kitchen! Ballerina awards the design which demonstrates most convincingly the flexibility and variety of „Liftboy“ and/or “ergoAGENT base“.

For the international jury it was not easy to make a decision on the awarding. They focussed on 9 different designs out of all these kitchens. Also the "Best of the Best" Design-Award was presented under the first 3 winners. During the Ballerina VIP-party - which took place on 17th September 2016 - the certificates and trophies were given to the winners coming from several countries.
