This built-in series, with handles of polished aluminium running the whole width, is consistently aligned horizontally. Together with the black fronts, it provides a very contemporary effect. The appliances with their Internet connectivity offer the user an intuitive form of interaction: a 4.5-inch display is concealed in the black front and only becomes visible when touched. It provides the user with direct feedback and guides through the programme selection and personal recipe settings.
Statement by the Jury
This collection of built-in appliances impresses by its clear frontal design, which combines precisely engineered metal handles with monolithically appealing, black glass surfaces.
