Iconic AGA cooker wins design classic award at the prestigious Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards
The iconic AGA range cooker has won the coveted Design Classic award at the 2016 Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards. The prize – awarded in recognition of a design that, externally at least, has remained largely unchanged for nine decades and which is still today instantly recognisable – was presented to Caroline Smith and Silvena Toncheva from AGA Rangemaster at a ceremony at Supernova in London.
The judging panel was drawn from all corners of the industry, bringing together extensive expertise in kitchen and bathroom design, architecture, retail, interior design and business. Martin Allen-Smith, editor of Designer Kitchen & Bathroom, said: “The AGA is a design classic in so many ways, and yet one that has remained relevant and in huge popular demand, maintaining its fundamental functions while being adapted to suit the ever-changing needs of the consumer. It's a very worthy winner." Caroline Smith of AGA said: “AGA has been at the heart of the British kitchen for more than 90 years. It is wonderful to be here to accept this award on behalf of all AGA employees and, of course, the AGA itself.”
