(Sugar Hill GA – July 7, 2016) MTI Baths is pleased to announce their TWO Wins in the 2016 Green GOOD DESIGN™ Awards – one of the most highly respected international design competitions in the world. The coveted Green GOOD DESIGN™ Awards are bestowed annually, and the Continuum sink and Cáscara tub were selected from over 500 products for their innovative design and emphasis on sustainable design.
Designed by nationally renowned kitchen and bath designer Matthew Quinn, the Continuum’s ingenious construction re-uses the countertop cut-out to form a faux bottom of the sink, creating an illusion of a seamless design that allows the striations of the counter material to visually flow ‘through’ the sink. Like the Continuum, the Cáscara tub’s eco-friendly Engineered Solid Stone® mixture of natural ground materials and high-performance resins mimics the natural beauty of stone while giving MTI designers the flexibility needed to create this visual delight.
“It is a huge honor to win two Green GOOD DESIGN™ Awards,” stated Russell Adams, MTI’s President and Chief of Design. “For MTI “Green” means environmental responsibility and sustainability, and our product designs reflect that.”
“Continuum was inspired by the individuality, movement and beauty of natural stone. This sink was created to provide a continuation of nature directly through the vessel,” stated designer Matthew Quinn. “Partnering with MTI Baths on the Continuum sink ensured perfect execution and understanding of the sink’s design.”
The Green GOOD DESIGN™ is awarded by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. The Green GOOD DESIGN 2016 awards represent the world’s most important manufacturers and design firms that are forwarding a new emphasis on a more sustainable design and environment worldwide.
