Erdmann Design toothbrush solution shortlisted for further awards in 2021
Brugg, Switzerland:-Leading edge concepts from design and engineering agency Erdmann Design have been shortlisted also for prestigious iF awards.
The Curaprox and Hydrosonic Pro electric toothbrushes and CPS Prime-Interdental brushes, both products shaped by Erdmann, are in line for awards when qualifying entries are submitted to IF Design Award Final Jury selection in March.
Form follows function
The Curaprox Hydrosonic Pro electric toothbrush features a distinctive drop-shaped brush head design with subtly cranked neck that allows it to reach difficult places in the mouth. The brush head is also distinctive, featuring fine Curen fiber filaments, which support the hydrodynamic effect and avoid damage to implants, sensitive gums or causing gum recession especially for prophylaxes with elderly users.
The SPS Prime interdental brushes also feature Curen fibres and a distinctive ergonomic form to reach also hidden gaps.
The iF judging panels were particularly impressed by the Form and Differentiation of the Curaprox products, which both scored comfortable more than the 242 point qualifying score needed to reach the second round.
