PISCATAWAY, N.J. (June 19, 2018) ― LIXIL Americas, a division of LIXIL Corporation, announced that the company has won multiple prominent product design awards for new introductions from its American Standard and DXV kitchen and bath brands. Recent honors include a Platinum A’ Design Award for the DXV Modulus Collection and a GREEN GOOD DESIGN Award for the VorMax Plus toilet.

Platinum A’ Design Award for the DXV Modulus Collection
The winner of a 2018 Platinum A’ Design Award, the DXV Modulus Collection of bath fixtures, faucets, furniture and accessories exhibits a versatile combination of modern design and functional geometry ideal for luxury bathrooms in residential and hospitality applications. The modular concept displayed throughout this comprehensive bathroom suite allows for maximum flexibility in installation, bringing high design to any project, including master bathrooms and powder rooms where space may be at a premium.
The Platinum A' Design Award is given to the top one percentile of designs that demonstrate an exemplary level of perfection in design. Entries are peer reviewed and anonymously judged by a jury panel of leading academics, important press members and established professionals. The revered Platinum A’ Design distinction designates a superior product design that provides value, utility, functionality, aesthetics, efficiency, sustainability and performance.
GREEN GOOD DESIGN Award for the VorMax Plus Self-Cleaning Toilet
The VorMax Plus self-cleaning toilet from American Standard has been named a 2018 GREEN GOOD DESIGN award recipient. The VorMax Plus toilet cleans and freshens the toilet bowl with LYSOL® cleaner during every flush with the innovative VorMax Plus FreshInfuser, which is hidden in an easy-to-access compartment behind the seat. The result is a cleaner bowl that helps prevent stains and buildup, without any extra effort by the user or an unsightly add-on device in the bowl.
Presented by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, the GREEN GOOD DESIGN award distinguishes innovative industrial designs that display forward thinking and progress toward a healthier and more sustainable world. It aims to raise public consciousness of products that contribute to worldwide design invention while incorporating the ideals of energy and resource conservation.
