German Design Award 2019 for IKA
/// The T 25 easy clean disperser receives
The high-performance IKA T 25 easy clean homogenizer is the first of its kind in the world for use in research, product development or quality control. Now this unique laboratory device has been lauded with the German Design Award 2019 in the “Industry” category.
The disperser, which was launched at Achema 2018, homogenizes samples, emulsifies substances such as cosmetics and suspends paints and coatings. The device has been awarded a “Special Mention in the Industry Category” by the German Design Council for its outstanding design quality. “Those who prevail here against the high-profile competition have proven themselves to be among the best”, writes Andrej Kupetz, Managing Director of the German Design Council in his congratulatory letter. The IKA T 25 easy clean disperserworks quietly, efficiently and conveniently. Thanks to the intelligent, user-friendly device design, it is particularly smart to use.
The associated dispersing tool is designed in such a way that it can be easily cleaned without dismantling the unit, since the rotor can be removed in one simple step. In addition, the new disperser has a specially developed, particularly robust housing. IKA is very pleased about the award, because the “Special Mention” title honors workmanship with particularly successful aspects or solutions in its design. This is great recognition of IKA’s commitment and that of its developers and designers.
The international premium prize has been awarded by the German Design Council since 2011. The award ceremony will take place on February 8, 2019 in the presence of 1,300 guests from politics, business, design and the press. It is one of the most important design events of the year aimed at discovering, presenting and distinguishing unique design trends.
