    Laurels twice over: "Diva" from WMF Hotel takes a Home&Trend Award and an EESC European Award

    Laurels twice over:
    BirkenfeldAt this year's Tendence international trade fair for consumer goods, the LifeCare initiative in cooperation with the Messe Frankfurt presented the coveted Home&Trend Awards for the fifth time. End customers and professional buyers alike consider this independent seal of quality a valuable pointer for their decision to purchase. This year for the first time, prizes were awarded for innovations in the "hotel furnishings" category as well as for trend products and the newest and best in consumer goods. Nominated as a candidate for the "Innovation of the Year 2015" award by a panel of architects, hoteliers and design & lifestyle experts, the Diva beverages cooler from WMF Hotel then won the approval of consumers and hotel guests in the consumer-vote phase of the award process. Functionality combined with glamour and practicality of design were the convincing features. The triangular stainless-steel cooler is shaped to accommodate several beverages at once. And its softly curved lines make it a charming eye-catcher for bar or buffet. The jacket is double-skinned, so it can be used on its own, without its companion cooling component. Last but not least, resource-conserving production adds ecological appeal to the Diva's many winning features. The EESC European Award is presented by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and raises the winners of the Home&Trend Awards to the level of European accolade. The beverages cooler from WMF Hotel took second prize in the "Excellent Design" category.

    At the presentation ceremony on August 31, 2015 during the Tendence expo in Frankfurt, Susanne Tabery, Director of Marketing & Product Management of proHeq GmbH, and Product Manager Thilo Müller accepted the two prizes: "We are delighted to accept both these awards for Diva. They confirm that the innovative and functional design is very much to the taste not only of the professional jury but also of the guests from the hospitality sector".

    The glamorous yet modern design of the new Diva beverages cooler from WMFHotel adds lustre to table arrangements at conferences, conventions and events. By contrast with the staid, functional positioning of water, juice, wine and the like, the soft curves of the triangular stainless steel coolers add highlights to any buffet or table. In terms of versatility, this all-round talent leaves nothing to be desired in the hotel and catering sector. The stainless-steel jacket is double-skinned and it can be used separately from the cooling component. As a champagne cooler with crushed ice on buffet or counter-top, the double-skinned stainless-steel cooler prevents unsightly condensate drips. The same holds true for the plastic element, equally eye-catching all on its own.

    Easy, effective handling is a built-in feature of both components: once the cooler module has been chilled to the desired temperature in the freezer, it simply slips into its stainless-steel surround ready to accommodate bottles of different shapes and sizes. At about 20 degrees centigrade in the room, the cooler element can transfer its chill to the beverages for at least three hours. And this item is great even when not standing centre-stage. Shouldered edging for stacking to save storage space plus dishwasher-safe design are further proof of its quality character in terms of materials and user-friendliness.
