LOS ANGELES, March 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vinotemp, a recognized leader in the wine storage and refrigeration industry for 30 years, today announced that the industry's first Brushed Stainless Modular Under Stairs Wine Cabinet along with the new Designer Series Stainless Outdoor Refrigerator have been honored with a Platinum and Gold Award for Design Excellence (ADEX) - the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of appliances, furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.
"The 2014-2015 ADEX Awards attracted upwards of 500 companies and thousands of innovative new product submissions," said John Platter, executive director of ADEX. "ADEX judges are among the A&D industry's most respected in their respective areas of expertise. The ADEX Award represents the best product and project designs of the year in the opinion of those who matter the most, and Vinotemp has earned its place among the elite ADEX group."
Both of Vinotemp's latest award-winning products offer creative wine and beverage storage solutions:
- Vinotemp's Brushed Stainless Modular Under Stairs Wine Cabinet is a modern wine storage solution that can be specified under new and existing standard staircases, and because the unit is modular, its depth (racking for storing wine bottles one, two or three deep) and length (from two to six or even eight doors) can be customized to best accommodate varying wine collection and staircase sizes.
- Vinotemp's new Designer Series Stainless Outdoor Refrigerator features an easy to clean stainless steel body and door, full-length curved door handle, and front exhaust. A soft glowing white LED interior light provides extra visibility while a well-insulated door helps to protect against outdoor elements - the door also includes extra storage space (wine bottles can easily be stored in the door).
"We enjoy pushing the envelope when it comes to providing attractive, creative, yet practical wine and beverage storage options," states President of Vinotemp, India Hynes. "Being recognized by ADEX with another Platinum award, as well as a Gold, is an honor. The esteemed recognitions serve as affirmation of the work it took to create these unique Vinotemp wine and beverage storage options."
All of the entries in each of the ADEX categories have potential for three award levels of Platinum, Gold or Silver. Judges awarded points based on form, function, value, and fitness for particular purpose. Total points earned determined each winner's award level. All Platinum, Gold and Silver level products will be published in the 2015 ADEX Winners Edition and will be featured all year on designjournalmag.com.
