Award Winning Eco-Chic Cifial Faucets

Eco-Chic Faucet Collections from Cifial USA Recognized with Three ADEX Design Awards

Cifial USA, known for its distinctive Portuguese craftsmanship, has been honored with three design awards from the Design Journal's 2009 Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX). Receiving the competition’s top accolade, the Quadra 25 Wall Mount faucet was awarded a Platinum ADEX Award while the Techno 25 Low-Profile and Quadra 25 High-Profile faucets were recognized with Gold ADEX Awards.

“Building on the success of multiple years of recognition in the ADEX competition, the latest awards reinforce our commitment to superior product design,” said Joseph Pinto, president of Cifial USA. “Because Cifial USA products were selected among thousands of entrants, the ADEX awards offer validation for our success in designing plumbing products that are not only stylish but also of the highest quality and performance.”

The ADEX Awards program, now in its 15th year, constitutes the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade. Design Journal, the international trade publication for interior designers, architects and facility managers, is the proud sponsor of the ADEX Awards.

The Platinum award-winning Quadra 25 wall-mounted faucet (shown left) was recognized for its sleek, high performance design that is ideal for smaller spaces such as apartments or condos. The clever joystick lever ensures optimum control while the elegantly curved spout highlights the natural flow of water. “The Quadra 25 collection embraces form and functionality with the water-saving capabilities that homeowners are looking for,” says Jim Osborne, director of sales for Cifial.

All three award-winning faucets are WaterSense® certified and come standard with a 1.5 gallon per minute (gpm) flow rate, resulting in a 30 percent savings as compared to the industry standard of 2.2 gpm. The low-profile Techno 25 (left) stands at just over six inches for smaller spaces while the high-profile Quadra 25 (right) at 11.5 inches is an excellent choice for living spaces with full bars or kitchen islands.

Both collections are available in the following three finishes; polished chrome, satin nickel, and Cifial’s exclusive weathered. The collections feature a choice of a Wall Mount lavatory faucet, single handle lavatory faucet, and single handle high-profile lavatory faucet style to fit a wide array of design needs. They are a perfect complement to the company’s existing Techno faucets, custom shower components, and bath accessories.
