The Minta Touch’s elegant silhouette has already made this kitchen faucet a design classic that continues to win favor among discerning consumers worldwide. Now incorporating the innovative EasyTouch technology, GROHE Minta Touch is a hybrid faucet, offering two modes of operation. In addition to conventional lever operation, the flow of water can also be triggered by skin contact with any part of the spout.
This means whenever fingers are dirty from preparing food, a simple touch with the back of the hand or the lower arm will start the flow of cool and cleansing water. This unique touch sensor technology has reinvented the kitchen faucet and repositioned it as a modern product for 21st-century lifestyles. The Minta Touch comes in three designs, L-spout, C-spout and C-spout with GrohTherm Micro thermostatic scalding technology, and two finishes, GROHE Starlight Chrome and SuperSteel Infinity Finish.
Paul Flowers, Senior Vice President of Design at Grohe AG, said: “When we set out to create GROHE Minta Touch, we started by exploring the boundaries of modern technology in cooperation with our colleagues in R&D. This is why we take pride not only in the faucet’s technical and visual features but also in the cooperative spirit that made it possible in the first place. Winning the ‘red dot: Best of the Best’ is clearly the result of a team effort and we appreciate this award as a very special accolade.”
Minta Touch faced some tough competition in this year’s “red dot award: Product Design”. A panel of 40 judges scrutinized and tested a total of 4,815 entries submitted by 1,816 manufacturers, designers and architects from 53 countries. The awards were presented at the red dot gala event held in the Aalto Theater in Essen, Germany, on July 7.
“With the Minta Touch kitchen faucet, users experience magic,” stated the red dot jury of international design experts. “Well-implemented technology has resulted in a kitchen faucet of particular quality.”
