Liebherr Appliances has been announced as the winner of the German Design Award 2019 for the SBSes 8486 BluPerformance side-by-side and the EWTgb 3583 built-in wine cabinet.

According to the jury: “The SBSes 8486 is not just a fridge, but rather a fully-functional all-rounder with a high-quality, modern design, made unique by its distinctive side-by-side door. A cleanly designed product lending a touch of elegance to any room.”

In addition, the EWTgb 3583 built-in multi-temperature wine cabinet also won the German Design Award.

The jury described it as “The modern wine cabinet offers two independent and separately adjustable climate zones. The glass door transforms the fridge into a stylish piece of furniture, which is further enhanced by the atmospheric interior LED lighting. A fantastic product that is impressive in every regard.”

A certain number of design products are awarded the title of ‘winner’ in each category. These are selected by a separate specialist jury for each category of the German Design Award. For Liebherr, the awards are further evidence of the outstanding quality and of the classic and timeless design which is a mark of the products.
