The bathroom interior brand VALLONE® has won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2023 for groundbreaking design. The design collection RYO convinced the international jury of experts in the category "Product Design" with exclusive design quality and a high degree of innovation and won the award "Best of the Best". The modern collection combines aesthetics and function with the highest sustainability standards - and is now officially among the best in its class.
RYO - sculptural comfort
Striking contours meet gentle curves, ambivalence meets harmony, edgy meets smooth: the sculptural character of the RYO collection plays with contrasts. Nevertheless, the solid-looking aesthetics complement the discreetly convex tub and basin edges in a harmonious way. Finished with a diamond-like cut, the collection as a whole appears high-quality and exclusive. And the inner values are also right: Made from the greenest solid surface material on the market, VELVET STONE®, the collection focuses on sustainability. The statement piece, the RYO bathtub, is complemented by the countertop washbasins RYO S as well as RYO S ROUND which, in individual combination, enable a holistic bathroom design. "For all its simplicity, the design is independent, has an individual identity and high recognition value," reads the assessment of the expert jury.
VALLONE®- italian design. german precision.
Italian design, German engineering: the bathroom interior brand VALLONE® offers what has long been missing in the bathroom furnishings market. From its headquarters on the grounds of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zeche Zollverein, the Essen-based brand creates avant-garde, elegant and functionally sophisticated design, beyond bathroom standards or prices in the luxury segment. VALLONE® always focuses on transparency, clarity and advice. At its heart is an innovative digital platform that provides a direct interface to customers' wishes, ideas and questions.
"Our brand rethinks bathroom interiors: digital, dialog-oriented, sustainable. With VALLONE® we wanted to prove that the courage to do things differently can also lead to success in traditional industries," says Marcel Sekula, CEO of VALLONE®. "The Red Dot Design Award for RYO means all the more to us for that reason. It shows: New ways are seen - and honored!"
