ROSEMONT, Ill., Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of World Kitchen's iconic housewares brands, Chicago Cutlery® and Pyrex® were recently recognized and awarded with the GOOD DESIGN® award for PRIME by Chicago Cutlery™ and Pyrex® Gadgets. The GOOD DESIGN award is the world's most prestigious and oldest Design Awards program presented by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.
PRIME by Chicago Cutlery was completely redesigned from tip to grip, and is acclaimed as "The World's Most Responsive Cutlery™." This unique and premium line features an ergonomic handle with Responsive Touch Technology™ that conforms to the contour of the hand, resulting in remarkable control for a comfortable and effortless cutting experience.
"As we developed both collections, our team took time to thoughtfully design products that delivered solutions to what consumers were looking for in their kitchens," Austin Rothbard, President of the Americas at World Kitchen, LLC. "We're honored to be recognized by such a prestigious program known for design excellence for PRIME by Chicago Cutlery and Pyrex Gadgets, especially with several thousand submissions from across the world."
For more than 100 years, the Pyrex brand has been America's most trusted glass prepping, baking and storage solution. The new kitchen tools and gadget collection is the evolution of this household brand – designed specifically with a single-body nylon and silicon construction for durability and easy cleaning. Its design saves prep time and drawer space and proves smart design is simplicity in the highest form.
Both the PRIME by Chicago Cutlery and Pyrex Gadgets collections were introduced in 2016 and continue to be recognized for their design. The sleek and well-crafted cutlery collection received The Spark! Award – the highest accolade at the 10th Annual International Spark Awards earlier this year and recently won the 2016 BRIDES Registry Award for the 5-pc. Magnetic Block Set. Pyrex Gadgets were also recognized with the Spark Bronze Award.
