Kimberly-Clark Professional was declared as the winner of this year’s world-renowned iF DESIGN AWARD in the bath category for the company’s ICON™ dispenser collection.

Hannover-based iF International Design Forum GmbH is the world’s oldest independent design organisation. The judging panel comprised 133 independent design experts from across the globe, and the competition consisted of nearly 11,000 entries submitted from 56 countries.

“We are proud to be recognised 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 Kimberly-Clark Professional 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 customisable 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 service provider, facility manager and end user – offering style, simplicity, cutting-edge technology and a humancentric experience.
