Lake Forest, CA, -- Pfister has been named a 2012 Gold Award winner for their Carnegie Faucet in the Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) competition, sponsored by Design Journal magazine.

In the last 18 years, ADEX has become the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.

“The 2011-12 ADEX Awards attracted upwards of 500 companies submitting more than 2,800 innovative new products,” said John Platter, executive director of ADEX. “The ADEX Award has recognized many outstanding product designs over the years, and Pfister’s Carnegie has earned its place among that elite group.”

Carnegie is inspired by the Art Deco styles and lines of New York, the Carnegie Collection reflects the strength and classic beauty redefined to integrate seamlessly in your home. The Carnegie Collection is found exclusively at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting showrooms nationwide.

“Pfister is honored to have been the recipient of numerous ADEX design awards for more than 10 years. 2011 proved to be our most successful year, receiving four awards for our distinguished faucets: Elevate EXT and Park Avenue (Platinum Winners), Carnegie (Gold), and Wheaton (Silver). Receiving this distinction for so many years is a testament to Pfister’s passion for developing industry leading designs and innovations and we are extremely grateful for the recognition. “

All of the entries in each of the ADEX categories have potential for three award levels of platinum, gold or silver. Judges awarded points based on form, function, value, and fitness for particular purpose. Total points earned determined each winner’s award level. All Platinum, Gold and Silver level products will be published in the 2012 ADEX Winners Issue of Design Journal, the international resource for interior designers, architects and facility managers.
