The leading Italian company wins the international prize with the SINTESI 510

Milan, 22 April 2022 – A few weeks after winning the 2022 Red Dot Design Award, Elleci – the leading Italian manufacturer of composite kitchen sinks – announces the reception of another distinguished international design award. SINTESI 510, the innovative and highly functional sink from the LAB line has won the prestigious iF Product Design Award 2022, awarded by the iF International Forum Design in Hanover.

This is the latest in a series of successes for Elleci – the company previously won the 2021 prize – repeated with the jewel of the LAB product line: SINTESI 510 is the embodiment of the futuristic vision of finite space with infinite possibilities in a product with unique features and exceptional functionality and ergonomics. 

Practicality and convenience, optimisation of space and ease of use are the ingredients that guide the SINTESI collection as it rethinks the concept of ergonomics with a minimalist product of unmistakable style: the multi-award-winning SINTESI 510 comprises an XXL bowl, the first 116 cm composite sink with an extra-capacity single bowl (width 72 cm) and a draining board, inspired by the shift towards fluid processes and rational working practices that minimise unnecessary movements. 

Giancarlo Traversa, President of Elleci, says: “I can only restate my feelings of pride, just months before our 30th anniversary and a few weeks after winning another prestigious award. With the SINTESI 510, Elleci has once again been acknowledged internationally as a pioneer company in innovative design. The key to our success, today as 30 years ago, is our visionary interpretation of the sink as a workstation, truly central to food preparation”.

The Red Dot Design Award 2022 and the iF Product Design Award 2022 add to the list of successes for a project destined to become the new philosophy of spaces conceived for everyday living and designed with the user in mind. In line with its goal of strengthening and increasing its market share nationally and internationally, Elleci  closed 2021 with a 50% increase in turnover, confirming its position as the number one Italian manufacturer of kitchen sinks. With its 30th anniversary approaching, Elleci is planning a major investment programme totalling 30 million euros in order to address the ongoing market challenges with determination and renewed energy.
