(ATLANTA, GA – April 21, 2010) MTI Baths, known for its innovative products, once again is proud to announce the achievement of five 2010 ADEX Award wins. The coveted Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX Awards) are bestowed annually and constitute the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade. DESIGN JOURNAL, the international trade publication for interior designers, architects and facility managers, is the proud sponsor of the ADEX Awards.
Winning a PLATINUM ADEX Award for its innovative design is the Eryx Sink, designed by Matthew Quinn for MTI’s Boutique Collection. The sloping angles of the Eryx’s design are asymmetrical and seem to defy gravity, creating a fixture of interest and awe! The pedestal sink has an energy that drives from the floor upward and away from the wall. The result is a geometric urban design that is modern yet elegant.
MTI’s Petra Double Semi-Recessed Sink is also a winner of an ADEX PLATINUM Award. The Petra Double Sink echoes the strong, clean lines and sharp, contemporary geometric angles of the Petra tub. The trough-style luxury sink combines minimalist design with generous functionality.
Both the Petra Double and Eryx sinks are an integral part of MTI’s exclusive Boutique Collection. Made in the USA, these products are constructed using MTI’s “ESS” (Engineered Solid-Surface) material, a mixture of ground natural minerals and binding agents that are liquefied, poured and then hardened. Approximately 60% of the material is organic, including minerals mined from the earth and dirt. The result is molded stone.
The third PLATINUM ADEX Award winner is the Kuma tub, featuring minimalist lines and generous space. Kuma has an ergonomic bench seat for side-by-side bathing and can be ordered as a soaker, air bath, whirlpool or combination whirlpool/air bath, for the ultimate in hydrotherapy.
Winning a GOLD ADEX Award is Yume. A Japanese-inspired tub, Yume has a generous depth and features a crescent-shaped seating bench that is positioned low to the floor for maximum immersion, providing a deep bathing experience. Yume can be specified as a soaker or air bath.
MTI’s Marilyn tub is a transitional-design freestanding tub that is a harmonic blend of styles that can be adapted to an individual’s preference. Recognized with a SILVER ADEX Award, the Marilyn tub walks the line between traditional and contemporary, with an optional base to create a more traditional look or without a base for contemporary décors.
