CARSON, Calif., July 01, 2008—Water, Inc.—a premier distributor of luxury water products, decorative plumbing and high-end appliances—has received a 2008 ADEX (Awards for Design Excellence) Award for the Modern Mixer, its first full-scale kitchen sink faucet. The Modern Mixer earned a Platinum award, the top honor of the ADEX program, for its unique, contemporary design. ADEX is sponsored by Design Journal magazine, an international trade publication for interior designers, architects and facility managers.
This is the first award for the Modern Mixer, which was introduced by Water, Inc. just last year. Already one of the company’s most popular products, the Modern Mixer was inspired by the contemporary, Italian design of its accessory companion: Water, Inc.’s Modern Faucet. Sleek, cylindrical and standing nearly a foot tall, the Modern Mixer’s graceful vertical lines are balanced by its gently tapered horizontal spout and the horizontal control lever above it. The spout features an 8 ¾-inch reach and stands 6 3/8 inches above the counter, making it incredibly easy to fill pots and pitchers. The control lever boasts fully adjustable flow with a quarter-turn ceramic disc valve for smooth operation. The lever itself has a knurled tip for sure grip, even with wet hands.
The Modern Mixer and Modern Faucet are available in both Chrome and Satin Nickel finishes.
