The Creative Belgium Awards aims to recognize, promote and honor the Belgian creative industry. Novy’s kitchen hood ‘Mood’ was rewarded with bronze in the new category ‘Design’. Great appreciation for a very nice collaboration.
Innovative design language
The West Flemish company Novy is continuously innovating. Verhaert’s senior product designer David Pas coached Novy to take a fresh look at kitchen ventilation, in the context of the 5X5 project by Designregio Kortrijk. Thanks to smart sensors, the ‘Novy Mood’ is able to interact with the circumstances of the cooking environment. Furthermore, the user can customize the kitchen hood by choosing the desired light intensity and color temperature.
Design as accelerator
The design of ‘Mood’ is a reflection of Novy’s company DNA: the ambition to enhance our quality of life with solutions that are both innovative and user driven. Verhaert sees design as an accelerator for strategy development. Together, we created a new design language which underlines the future vision of the Belgian quality brand. We’re very proud and like to thank the jury of Creative Belgium for this recognition and award.
