Wolf Appliance Company, a manufacturer of high-end cooking appliances, announced that it is the recipient of two 2003 GOOD DESIGN(TM) awards from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design (Chicago, IL, U.S.) -- one for its dual-fuel range and another for its electric cooktop.
"We are honored to be recognized by the Athenaeum through its distinguished international competition," said Jim Bakke, president and CEO for Wolf Appliance Company. "The Wolf dual-fuel range affirms our commitment to developing innovative products that provide the latest cooking technology in a single, multi-purpose appliance, while the electric cooktop continues our tradition of industry leadership in performance and form."
The GOOD DESIGN(TM) program was established in 1950 by Earl J. Kaufmann, Jr. and is one of the oldest design competitions worldwide that recognizes designers and manufacturers for advancing new and innovative product concepts. The Museum received hundreds of submissions ranging from an airplane to a paperclip for this year's program. The GOOD DESIGN winners will be on exhibit at the museum from April 3 through July 31, 2004, and online at www.chi-athenaeum.org. Following the exhibition, Wolf’s dual fuel range and electric cooktop will join the Museum’s Permanent Design Collection.
