Coway announced on April 15 that it had received eight accolades, including the prestigious iF Gold Award, which was presented to the Noble dehumidifier, at this year’s International Forum (iF) Design Award.
Founded in 1953 as Die Gute Industrieform eV, the iF Design award assesses the impact, differentiation and other properties of products in nine categories – product, packaging, communication, professional concept, interior design, architecture, service design, user experience (UX) and user interface (UI).
Coway won a total of eight awards at the 2022 iF Design Awards. Five of them were in the Product category, with one being the prestigious Gold Award. Two other awards were won in the Interior Design category and one award in the User Interface (UI) category. 2022 marks the 15th consecutive year that Coway has received the iF Design Awards.
The Gold Award went to the Coway NOBLE Dehumidifier (AD-122E) for enhancing the aesthetics of its space with a premium, architecturally-inspired design. Its characteristic tower and horizontal layers set it apart from traditional dehumidifiers that have to be hidden in corners. The product was also praised for its auto-open maintenance feature, which senses when the water tank is full and opens the tray to signal that the water needs to be changed.
In addition to the NOBLE Dehumidifier Gold Award, the NOBLE Humidifier, NOBLE Water Purifier Series, NOBLE Induction Freedom Series and Air Cartridge Series also won awards in the Product category.
In interior design, the Coway Gallery branded experience space was recognized for its artistry. Coway Gallery displays products in a home setting to show how they fit into consumers’ varied lifestyles. With glass and plastic waste flooring from the Coway production line, it subtly embodied the company’s sustainability values.
“We are honored to have our premium brand NOBLE recognized at the prestigious iF Design Awards,” said Song Hyun-joo, Head of Coway Design Center. “It motivates us to keep innovating new products that improve both the way people live and also the space around them.”
