INDIANAPOLIS — The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design announced that the Saxony Pull-Out Spray kitchen faucet from Delta Faucet Co. is the recipient of the 2003 Good Design Award. The honor recognizes a leading example of a design-driven product that successfully incorporates functionality.
“This award is a proud accomplishment for the entire team who worked on this project,” said Judd Lord, Delta’s industrial design manager. “The work that goes into designing a faucet can be exciting and meticulous at the same time, so once you have a finished product, it’s rewarding to see it succeed to its full potential.”
Edgar Kaufmann and other leading designers founded the Good Design program in 1950 in Chicago. A model of the Saxony will be used for exhibition April 3 through June 14 at the Chicago Athenaeum. Following the exhibition, the Saxony will become part of the museum’s permanent design collection.
