Michael Graves Kitchen Faucets Win Design Award
The Michael Graves Kitchen Collection†from†Delta Faucet Company†has received the 2004 GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
Headquartered in Indianapolis, Delta Faucet Company is a division of the Masco Corporation, which is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry†ó the Supplier 100 of NAHB.
Founded in 1950 in Chicago by Edgar Kaufmann and many of the pioneering greats of American and modern design, the GOOD DESIGN†program recognizes design-driven products that successfully incorporate a high level of functionality.
Delta Faucetís award-winning Michael Graves collection includes three single-handle kitchen faucet options: a deck mount faucet, a high-arc faucet and a bar/prep faucet.
The products, according to Graves, are ďunlike anything on the market.Ē
Each kitchen faucet in the collection comes standard with a pivoting aerator. With a simple twist, the aerator can operate as spray or stream. The aerator also features Deltaís Touch-Clean spray face, which is comprised of soft, rubber nubs that are easily cleaned by the tip of a finger, preventing lime and calcium from building up.
The faucets are available with an optional soap/lotion dispenser and vegetable sprayer. Lever handles are generously sized and ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in the user's hand.
A model of the Michael Graves high-arc kitchen faucet will be exhibited at the Chicago Athenaeum this summer, after which it will become part of the museumís permanent design collection.
