Kimberly-Clark Professional is the winner of the world-renowned iF Design Award 2023. The company was recognized in the bathroom category for its collection of ICON™ dispensers.
The iF International Design Forum GmbH, headquartered in Hanover, Germany, is the oldest independent design organization in the world. The judging panel was comprised of 133 independent design experts from across the globe, and the competition featured nearly 11,000 entries submitted from 56 countries.
“We are proud to be recognized with the iF DESIGN AWARD for our Kimberly-Clark Professional ICON dispensers, which represent our most significant upgrade in technological advancements in over a decade,” said Mayur Valanju, Vice President of Product Development and Innovation at Kimberly-Clark Professional. “With an increased emphasis on hygiene, handwashing, and washroom experience, we wanted to create a product that elevated the washroom both aesthetically and operationally.”
The Kimberly-Clark Professional ICON dispenser collection won the judges over with its unique combination of aesthetic flexibility and functional excellence, elevating the entire user experience. The ICON collection is a family of hand towel, soap and toilet paper dispensers, which includes a first-of-its-kind dispenser that offers interchangeable and customizable faceplate options to elevate commercial washrooms with added sophistication and enhanced functionality.
While most dispensers are designed around the paper, the Kimberly-Clark Professional ICON dispenser is designed around the servicer, facility manager, and end user – offering style, simplicity, cutting-edge technology, and a human-centric experience.
