Eccentric by Rogerseller – multi-award winner
Eccentric by Rogerseller received the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017.

Designed by Rogerseller and developed in partnership with Australian tapware manufacturer Ram Tapware, Eccentric by Rogerseller pays homage to the quirky genius of the greatest minds in history.

“Albert Einstein’s bizarre habit of picking up used cigarettes, Nikola Tesla’s daily toe exercises and Yoshiro Nakamatsu’s oxygen depriving deep dives are acts that tell of the individualism, wonder and curiosity found in many great scientists, explorers and inventors, and the rebellion against convention that defines them,“ comments Rogerseller product designer Nick Johnston, on his inspiration behind the design.

Thanks to its uniquely positioned off-centre axis, the Eccentric mixer reveals an unexpected back-plate featuring cold and hot indicators. Once the handle is returned to its closed position, the unconventional back-plate is hidden and balance restored.

Using German progressive cartridge technology, Eccentric by Rogerseller enhances user safety and energy saving by opening in a low-pressure, cold position which increases in pressure with the turn of the dial. Unlike a traditional mixer, hot water is introduced only when required by rotating the mixer past the cold mark, increasing in temperature as the dial moves to its furthest open position.

With a subtle fin to match finger contours, the mixer provides the necessary leverage when slippery.

The mixer can be wall or bench mounted and used across basin, bath or shower applications while the subtle curves of the wall mounted bath and basin outlets complete the timeless and universal aesthetic.

“Eccentric by Rogerseller marks a new era of in-house design innovation that testifies the commitment to superior design and quality we’ve held for the last 120 years. Our past has not only prepared us for this exciting new journey, but forms part of our inspiration to continue innovating day after day,” says Rogerseller brand manager Tanya Sharpe.

Eccentric by Rogerseller received the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 as well as a Good Design Selection in the Good Design Awards 2017.

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award: “The Red Dot winners are pursuing the right design strategy. They have recognised that good design and economic success go hand in hand. The award by the critical Red Dot jury documents their high design quality and is indicative of their successful design policy.”

Manufacturers and designers around the globe were invited to enter their products in the 2017 competition. The jury of around 40 independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists tested, discussed and assessed each individual product, awarding the Honourable Mention for a well-conceived detail solution, the Red Dot for high design quality and the Red Dot: Best of the Best for groundbreaking design. In total, the competition received more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries this year.
