Joseph Joseph’s Totem bin wins Grand Prix 2015 award

Housewares supplier Joseph Joseph’s Totem recycling bin is the winner of the prestigious Grand Prix 2015 award, given by French magazine ‘Table & Cadeau’ at this year’s Paris trade show Maison & Objet.

Totem is part of Joseph Joseph’s Intelligent Waste range. Designed as a flexible waste separation unit, it is claimed to occupy the same space as a conventional kitchen bin but offer ‘many more functions without compromising on capacity’.

The news was announced at an awards ceremony held on September 4 in Hall 5 of Maison & Objet. This year, 46 products competed in seven categories: small appliances, glassware, bar & wine tasting, tableware, cooking, kitchen accessories, cutlery & decorative items. A jury of nine buyers, specialising in tableware, kitchenware and decoration, assessed entries across four criteria: design, innovation, technical expertise and quality/price ratio.

The winners are: Cook: the heating multifunctional robot expert by Magimix (small appliances), whisky tasting set by Peugeot (glassware, bar & wine tasting); the Zoucoup coffee cup by Pillivuyt (tableware); roaster oven dish by Cristel (cooking), Totem by Joseph Joseph (kitchen accessories), the Flat Cut kitchen knife by Claude Dozorme (cutlery), and the Linda Watt & Veke lamp distributed by Scandinavian Shop (decorative items).

The product that received the highest overall score won the Grand Prix Table & Cadeau. The judges also awarded a Special Jury Prize to the Delicha automatic teapot by Dalla Piazza, distributed by Sabatier.
