MEISTERSTÜCK by Kaldewei awarded – The OYO DUO receives the German Design Award 2023

KALDEWEI, Ahlen, January 2023 – Kaldewei receives the German Design Award 2023 for
the freestanding OYO DUO bath. The design by the Munich design studio Diez Office was
presented to the public for the first time at the Salone del Mobile in spring 2022. With the
bathtub from Kaldewei’s LUXSTAINABILITY® world, the bathroom manufacturer from Ahlen
shows that luxury and sustainability go hand in hand in perfect form.
The OYO DUO combines organic design with uncompromisingly durable materials. The doublewalled bathtub, inspired in its form by Japanese porcelain design, consists of 100 percent steel
enamel. The recyclable and sustainable concept of the Meisterstück also convinced the expert
jury of the German Design Council, which has been presenting the German Design Award
annually since 2012. With its global spectrum and its international appeal, it is one of the most
respected awards in the design landscape across all sectors. Kaldewei receives the award for
the OYO DUO in the “Excellent Product Design” category.
Designer Stefan Diez has created a graceful design sculpture that integrates harmoniously into
any bathroom. “The design of the MEISTERSTÜCK OYO DUO is modern and timeless at the
same time. The OYO DUO is not part of a fashion, rather it is the result of a process. It looks as
if a liquid, flowing form has been frozen the moment it touches the ground,” explains Stefan
The German Design Council honoured pioneering products and innovative projects at the
German Design Awards – in the three award disciplines “Excellent Product Design”, “Excellent
Communications Design” and “Excellent Architecture”. From more than 4,200 entries from 57
nations, “Gold” was awarded 98 times in 68 categories in addition to the awards “Winner” and
“Special Mention” – the highest distinction of the award.
“Winning the German Design Award is a wonderful confirmation of how worthwhile it is to make
the designers’ vision a reality. The courage and performance of the Kaldewei team is also
honoured, as is the fine design by Diez Office,” sums up Christian Büttner, Director of
Innovation and Portfolio at Kaldewei.
A novelty is that the award-winning MEISTERSTÜCK OYO DUO is available for the first time in
selected colours from Kaldewei’s Coordinated Colours Collection. It can be ordered in two sizes
as of now.
