The good news of winning the German Design Award had already reached SieMatic in October; now the German Design Council officially presents the winners in its winners' gallery.
Honored in the category "Excellent Product Design Kitchen"
The jury justified the award for the SieMatic SLX as follows: "The fine recessed grips permit dispensing with attached handles, resulting in a minimalist overall image that emits the maximum in elegance. The exclusive impression is supplemented by the integrated lighting that permits an evocative atmosphere to arise."
