ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hestan—the brand celebrated for bringing the award-winning innovations of its commercial appliances to the home kitchen—is proud to announce its three latest accolades, two GOOD DESIGN® Awards for the 48-Inch Dual Fuel Range and Ensemble Refrigeration Suites™, and a 2021 BIG Innovation Award!
Presented by the Chicago Athenaeum and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, the GOOD DESIGN® Awards honor the leading and best contemporary designs manufactured in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America. The 48-Inch Dual Fuel Range and Ensemble Refrigeration Suites™ were selected by a jury of international specialists and design experts, and recognized among 900 of the best new products and graphic designs from over 48 nations.
Hestan 48-Inch Dual Fuel Ranges first made their debut at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in 2019. Featuring the commercially-inspired Hestan details, including the Marquise Accented™ handles—with the industry-first MarquiseDisplay™ conveniently inset right into the handles—control panel and commercial grade end caps, patented heavy-duty cast-iron grates, and high-performance dual-flow burner system, the 48-Inch Dual Fuel Ranges marry exceptional performance with innovative design.
The modular Hestan Ensemble Refrigeration Suites™ meld refrigeration, frozen goods and wine storage into one elegant package. The Hestan column refrigerators and freezers deliver dynamic food storage with easily adjustable shelving, a high-performance compressor and antimicrobial stainless steel. EvenFlow Air Circulating Technology™ provides uniform and precise temperature control, with independent ventilation for each compartment, and creates an air curtain to prevent cold air from escaping when the door opens, ensuring better food preservation. Hestan’s innovative modular system gives you the freedom to pick and choose between various refrigerators, freezers and wine storage to configure the perfect cold storage center to suit your unique needs.
Presented annually by the Business Intelligence Group, the BIG Innovation Awards recognize organizations, products and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways. Hestan was honored for thoughtfully reimagining the virtual customer experience, successfully launching several high-profile additions to its award-winning product lines, and receiving other notable accolades along the way.
“More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Hestan as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”
Since its initial launch in 2018, Hestan’s indoor product line has received five TWICE VIP awards for the Pro Style Bottom Mount Refrigerator, 48-Inch Dual Fuel Range, 24-Inch Wine Cellar, 30-Inch Dual Fuel Range and 72-Inch Ensemble Refrigeration Suite. Hestan has received recognition from Architectural Digest, which named Hestan’s Indoor Living Suite and 48-Inch Dual Fuel Range among the “Best New Products at KBIS,” and awarded the All Gas Range a 2020 Architectural Digest Great Design Award; as well as from Good Housekeeping, which awarded Hestan’s concept Smart Gas Rangetop as an Editor’s Pick at the 2020 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). Hestan also received a 2019 GOOD DESIGN® award for the 36-Inch Dual Fuel Range, and was named a Most Innovative Company of the Year in the 2020 BIG Innovation Awards, marking these latest accolades the second consecutive recognitions from each organization.
“We are very honored to be starting 2021 off with these prestigious awards,” said Eric Deng, president and co-founder of Hestan Commercial Corporation. “2020 was a challenging year for our industry, and the team at Hestan worked very hard to continue providing innovative value to our partners and customers despite new obstacles.
