iSteam: 2013 KBCulture Award winner

KBCulture Award 2013

Wonderful steamy news to share with you! We've just learned that Mr. Steam's iSteam is a 2013 KBCulture Award Winner according to 2013 KBCULTURE Awards!


The KBCulture Award, now in its fourth year, is awarded to kitchen and bath products which have "passed muster of expert judges who evaluated entries for technological innovation and aesthetic design," according to 2010 KBCulture Awards. Although not all products are available yet in showrooms, "by the competition's eligibility stipulations, all will be available by year's end."

Leslie Clagett, Editor of KBCulture, judged the 2013 entries with Janice Costa, the editor of Kitchen & Bath Design News, the industry's top trade journal. She states "after reviewing this year's competition entries, I'd say it's been time well spent on the part of manufacturers. What was once new has become the norm in several areas of kitchen and bath products; look at induction cooking, hands-free faucets, low-flush toilets, and wifi controls for proof that change not only happens, but takes root, as well."

Leslie, by the way, is a passionate observer of the international kitchen and bath industries and author of The New City Home, among other books. Her editing responsibilities extend to publications ranging from Arts + Architecture to Kitchens & Baths. You won't meet anyone with as much respect for quality design and the people who labor in its pursuit.

  • Kitchen Cabinets
  • Cooking
  • Refrigerators
  • Dishwashers
  • Laundry
  • Ventilation
  • Kitchen Faucets
  • Sinks

Mr. Steam iSteam, KBCulture Award 2013

Here is the 2013 KBCulture Award
Winner description for iSteam by Mr. Steam:
A swipe and a tap on the screen of this sleek, moisture-proof control pad is all that's needed to select the settings for a customized steam shower experience. The 4.3-inch liquid crystal display screen is a mere 1/8-inch thick, sitting nearly flush with the wall when installed.
Available in black or white, the unit was designed by David Farrage, whose experience with Movado and Lamborghini is evident in iSteam's contemporary styling.

Thank you, Leslie, for the honor of being selected a KBCulture Award Winner for 2013!
