Samsung Electronics today announced that it received a total of 80 awards at the International Forum (iF) Design Awards 2023, a prestigious German international design competition. Included among the honors was a Gold Award for Samsung’s Bespoke Infinite Line refrigerator and kitchen appliances.1
Founded in 1953 as Die Gute Industrieform e.V., the iF Design Award conducts comprehensive evaluations of factors including differentiation and impact across a total of nine categories: Product, Packaging, Communication, Professional Concept, Interior Architecture, Architecture, Service Design, User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI).
“It is important to design meaningful experiences that integrate shifting customer values with innovative technologies,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Corporate Design Center at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to contribute to our customers’ lives and our society with designs that cater to all needs.”
Gold Award Recognizes Design That Offers Customized Experiences for Different Lifestyles
The Bespoke Infinite Line is a premium built-in look refrigerator that is available in a choice of fridge, freezer or wine cellar models and features a timelessly contemporary modular design that seamlessly blends into any interior.2 With simple lines, high-quality natural materials and features that maximize convenience and streamline food storage, the Bespoke Infinite Line adds lasting value to consumers’ kitchens.
The refrigerator’s exterior is made from premium aluminum that is more dent- and scratch-resistant and allows marks and stains to be easily wiped away. The interior is bright and refined with its Black Metal Cooling and Tunnel Lighting — two features that epitomize the refrigerator’s elegant balance of form and function.
Total of 80 Awards, From Product to UX Design, Including TVs, Home Appliances and Smartphones
Samsung Electronics’ 80 wins across all design categories, including Product and UX, were the most of any nominee at this year’s awards.
In addition to the Bespoke Infinite Line’s Gold Award, Samsung received awards in the Product category for the Odyssey Ark, the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming screen; the Bespoke Jet™, a cordless stick vacuum with an all-in-one Clean Station™; and the Galaxy Z Flip4 Bespoke edition, a smartphone that offers an exclusive customization experience by allowing users to design a device that is uniquely theirs.
Samsung’s accessibility-enhanced TV UX, which includes an avatar-based Sign Language Guide that provides explanations of TV menus in sign language, and Samsung Space Tycoon, a virtual space and management simulation game on the Roblox metaverse platform where users can create and play games and share experiences using Samsung products, were also recognized for design excellence.
