The Phoenix Teel Collection Awarded 2022 Red Dot Awards for Product Design


Phoenix is thrilled to announce that the unique Teel collection, imagined and created by our Australia in-house team, has won “Best of the Best” at the 2022 Red Dot Design Awards as recognition for excellence in  Product Design.

A testament to the sophistication of the collection, conveyed through its aesthetically pleasing symmetry. The Red Dot Design Award is conferred on the year’s best products as selected by the Red Dot jury for their excellence in design, as well as function and innovation. The Best of the Best if the highest distinction in the competition and is bestowed on pioneering designs.

John Hoogendoorn, Creative Design Manage at Phoenix is understandably proud of his team for this latest award. “Our design philosophy is firmly rooted in both form and function innovation,” John revealed. “The continual quest to do better has led to a raft of international design awards over the last decade, culminating in two Red Dot Best of the Best awards in the last three years. We have been humbled by all the awards but are focused on building our brand to be the most respected worldwide for excellence in design.”

What is the thought process behind creating a Red Dot Best of the BEst product? Phoenix’s Design Lead, Ban Liu, explains. “Teel originated through the exploration of how two shapes organically flow together. I started to blend an oval into a circle which resulted in the basis of Teel’s unique, dynamic form.”

Liu reflects “When I think of Teel, two words come to mind – fine and slender. I wanted to convey sophistication and draw on my manufacturing knowledge to create seamless, highly finished tapware designs which are pleasing to the eye.” He continues, “every element has been considered to keep the profile slender and in proportion – the body, internal cartridge, aerator, outlet height and width, back plate shape and handle design.”

The Teel design is an elegant, slender tapware collection of mixer taps, shower mixers and outlets. With its timeless qualities, it easily integrates into current bathroom and kitchen design styles.

Phoenix nurtures Australian talent and is a strong advocate of creating uniquely designed taps, mixers, showers, and accessories. Throughout our 30-year history, Phoenix has grown to be a leader within the Australian plumbing industry, winning multiple awards as recognition of our commitment to excellence and innovation.
