Neo Glass cookware going for the highest honour at the 2011 Designpreis Deutschland
The Neo Glass cookware from BergHOFF, designer and manufacturer of high quality cook and kitchen ware, is nominated for the Designpreis Deutschland. This pres-tigious award is called the Prize of prizes since partici-pation is conditional: the selected designs must be recommended by German government and they must already have won an international award.
Heusden-Zolder, May 2010 – In the Neo line, the integra-tion of the handles on the pot and lid immediately catches the eye. A simple twist of the lid slides the lateral positioned handles over those of the pot, turning the 2 parts into one aesthetic whole. The functional strength then is unveiled too: the pouring rim opens and the integrated handles of cover and body now allow safe and comfortable pouring.
“Our designs combine form and function” said award-winning designer Frederik Aerts, “and this 2011 nomination is a great honour and testament to the quality of our de-signs. The Neo Glass only recently won the 2010 Red Dot Award in the category product design”.
The harmonic stylistic language with well-conceived func-tions was first introduced in the also internationally acclaimed ‘original’ Neo. “It’s clear that the Neo Glass is a true descendant, but with a personality of its own”, Frederik Aerts explained.
Beauty and comfort
The Neo Glass comes with a high polished 18/10 stainless steel body and lid which form inventive alliances with their black matted handles. For added comfort, the soft grips remain cool during cooking.
The grey tinted glass in the shiny cover not just pleases the eye, but also helps preserving the ingredients’ nutritional value since the lid can stay on the pot during cooking.
A complete range
The series compromises a 16 cm / 6 ¼” saucepan, 3 casse-roles (16 - 18 - 20 cm | 6/14” - 7” - 8”) and a covered stockpot of 24 cm - 10”. Those pots nicely nest together for convenient and spacesaving storage. There’s also a covered skillet of 24 cm / 10” available. The Neo’s are suitable for all heat sources, induction included and their covers can take the role of hotplate too. All Neo Glass cookware is dish-washer safe.
