Miele Honored With Prestigious Housewares Design Award
S7260 Cat & Dog® Vacuum Wins ‘Best In Category’ for Floor Care Electrics
Princeton, NJ - January 11, 2011 – Often referred to as “the Oscars of home design,” the Housewares Design Awards is the premier awards competition of the housewares industry. An independent panel of judges recently selected Miele’s S7260 Cat & Dog® vacuum as “Best in Category” based on superior design, appearance, function and originality. The Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business, with educational support from the International Housewares Association and sponsorship by the New York International Gift Fair®.
Miele’s advanced S7260 Cat & Dog® vacuum is specifically designed to effectively remove pet hair and absorb carpet odors while retaining the dust, dirt and dander that can trigger allergies and asthma. Miele’s unique Sealed System® technology, AirClean filtering dustbag and Active AirClean filter with odor absorbing charcoal makes the Cat & Dog® vacuum the perfect choice for pet lovers. The entire Miele S7 series has garnered many coveted awards and significant recognitions since its introduction in February 2009.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized as “Best in Category” by such a well-respected organization,” says Paul McCormack, Spokesperson for Miele. “The category received over 320 entries, so the fact that Miele was ranked at the very top is quite impressive and humbling.”
About Miele Vacuum CleanersMiele vacuums are known for legendary performance, advanced filtration and brilliant design, setting the standard for floor care and cleaning worldwide. Miele’s long heritage of vacuum innovations dates back 83 years to the use of Bakelite as a sound dampener in 1927, the advent of convenient integrated tools and stunning fashion colors in the 1960s to the world’s first HEPA-certified vacuums in the 1990s.
Throughout the century, these award-winning advances have established Miele as the “must-have” status vacuum – hailed as “so smart it could start its own Mensa chapter” and “it’s like the BMW of vacuum cleaners.” Beyond the aforementioned accolades, design awards and sleek good looks, Miele continues to focus on making vacuuming easier through patented new technologies like the S7 SwivelNeck® as well as longer cords, automatic flooring sensors, powerful Vortex Motor Systems™ and silence settings. Miele’s passion for quality and innovation has resulted in a vacuum that excels not only in cleaning performance, but also in the area of filtration. According to recent independent tests, there’s no other vacuum on the planet that removes dust, dirt and allergens as efficiently as a Miele canister or upright. Miele’s unique combination of AirClean filter bag, HEPA filter and Sealed System® design is 99.99+% effective in capturing lung-damaging particles. The key to this design is its hygienic self-closing AirClean filter bag whose revolutionary multi-ply filtering material helps homeowners dispose of the captured particles without coming in contact with them.
