)-- Danish Design Frontrunner MENU Wins Another Prestigious Award in the US
The Danish interior design frontrunner MENU kicks off 2011 by taking home the prestigious award of Overall Excellence at the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF). MENU proudly adds this important recognition to the impressive list of already received awards including the Red Dot Award, GOOD Design Award, IF awards, and many others.
“We deeply appreciate this recognition and in particular this award is significant to us because it in many ways is the voice of the consumers. We feel that what we are trying to do - pushing the boundaries of the world of design with our Scandinavian originality - is being understood and appreciated,” says Bjarne Hansen, creative director of MENU.
NYIGF has honored MENU with this award to recognize superior design creativity and innovative product design. NYIGF is widely accepted as the industry’s leading resource for design-led merchandise and is guided by an impressive jury with members such as Kathy Thornton-Bias General Manager at The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).
“These Accent on Design participants have emphasized functionality, without compromising aesthetics, across a broad spectrum of product categories,” says Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and GLM Senior Vice President.
“Their work stands out in a field of exemplary design.”
Since 2007 MENU has intensified its presence in the U.S. including an expanded distribution reach and most importantly increased recognition from the design-conscious American consumers appreciating great design combined with original functionality.
In particular the MENU line of wine accessories is very successful in the U.S. including the Decanting Pourers that aerate wine while you pour it. Also very popular is the patented MENU Wine Breather - a beautiful hand-made wine decanter that both aerates your wine in two minutes and effortlessly allows you to pour the aerated wine back into the original bottle.
Lab tests show that the patented MENU Wine Breather aerates a bottle of wine twice as effectively as any other aerator on the market.
