From past to future through design innovation
The MOLTENI PODIUM by ELECTROLUX PROFESSIONAL was awarded the JANUS industry design prize at the 50th award ceremony, which took place on July 8th 2005 at the French Senate under the high patronage of Jacques Chirac, President of the French Republic.
ELECTROLUX PROFESSIONAL was one of 30 industry leaders to receive the coveted prize, along with other big names such as Peugeot, Philips, Porsche, Renault and Toshiba.
During the ceremony, Anne-Marie Sargueil – President of the Institut Français de Design – and Mr Christophe Beaux – Director of Cabinet of François Loos, the Minister of Industry – gave out diplomas to all nominees.
The JANUS label goes to solutions that integrate a design-centred approach from their conception. Like Janus – the Roman god of change and transitions such as the progression of past to future – the MOLTENI PODIUM by ELECTROLUX PROFESSIONAL integrates tradition and quality with design and innovation.
