New Zealand’s award-winning and market-leading premium shower and tapware brand Methven Limited (MVN) has won two awards at the 2016 Chicago Good Design Awards for the second year in a row.

Two product ranges were named amongst the most innovative and intelligently designed products in the world in 2016.

“We have a goal to set new standards for the market and are proud to say our Surface Tapware range recognised today utilises Eco Brass – a lead and heavy metal free alloy that meets or exceeds the most stringent standards in the world” said Methven Group CEO, David Banfield.

Mr Banfield added “Our team’s passion for design and innovation fuels our ongoing mission to create amazing water experiences. We are immensely proud that our Aio and Surface ranges continue to demonstrate how great design created in New Zealand can resonate globally”.

Aio is the most awarded range in Methven’s rich 130 year history. This award is the 8th award for the new shower system, bringing the total to 22 national and international awards for the Aio range.
