The Piatta basin of the Spanish Miapetra firm, based in the city of Segovia has been awarded with the prestigious iF Design Award of the designer awards 2018 edition. The iF Design Awards are granted by the iF Industry Forum Design, the most historical Industrial Design Institute in Germany. In common terms, the iF Awards are known as the Oscars for recognition of good Design, not only judging aesthetics, but taking into account other parameters as well, such as environmental responsibility for example. An international jury formed by 63 design experts, coming from 16 different countries, evaluated recently in Hamburg, from January 23 to 25, more than 6.400 product entries from over 54 participating countries, to proclaim Award and Gold Award winners of the 2018 edition of the Awards.

Piatta stands for a unique designer basin, manufactured in stone that uses a specially developed and patented technique to canalize the water flow by channels and slots to a tray, that then conducts the water to the drain valve and waste system. Moreover, it concerns an Eco-friendly product, produced with specific mechanical techniques, allowing a full 100% application use of the stone slab, that has been extracted from the quarry directly, this way supporting the company´s firm environmental commitment. Additionally, the basin has been specially engineered and designed to reduce water consumption by its user up to 50%, when comparing to average standards of common basin use.

Piatta is inspired on modern architecture, that has been changing drastically the concept and interpretation of living spaces. The co-founder of the Miapetra brand, Mr. Igor Montero states “the iF Award is a stimulus to keep progressing in our product range, in which we strongly believe and support and it is a great motivation to keep innovating in the features and functionality of our designs”.
