The iF Design Awards are hosted by iF International Forum Design, an independent German design organization with an unparalleled history in the world. Held since 1953, the awards are recognized internationally as “proof of exceptional design.”


For the 2018 awards, 63 design experts meticulously examined more than 6,400 application designs from 54 nations and regions. Among these, 1,218 designs received iF Design Awards.





Features of product awarded

G:101 is a series of "drop-in" modular-type gas cookers for high-end kitchens. Users can freely combine and configure multiple components according to their lifestyles. Due to the large number of high-rise condominiums buildings in city centers occupied by non-Japanese residents, the cookers have pictorial and parameter-based operating instructions rather than written ones. The glass touch-panel operating console looks sophisticated and is easy to clean. The stoves can be used in island kitchens in full view of living areas without detriment to esthetic appearances. And full-cover burner grates provide stability for all pots, big and small, allowing you to cook with peace of mind.


Since its foundation, the Rinnai spirit has embodied a “commitment to heat and lifestyles,” “quality is our destiny,” and “contribution to local communities.” As a comprehensive manufacturer of heating and energy appliances, we will strive to enrich people’s lives through our exceptional designs.
