The German Design Council has announced that Radford has been nominated for a German Design Award 2020. We are proud that the collection has caught the eye of the judges and has been shortlisted for inclusion in the Excellent Product Design Tabletop category.


The German Design Awards are one of the most significant international design accolades. Only those organisations who the council consider represent pioneering contributions to the German, and international design landscape, are invited to take part.  A highly esteemed international jury of experts select the winners, and we are honoured to have Radford amongst the nominations. 

Radford owes its origins to the contours and balance of traditional eighteenth century English cutlery, and with 65 individuals pieces, it is one of the most extensive collections of stainless steel cutlery available in the world. 

The versatility of the design, combined with the extensive range, means that it is flexible enough to complement any table setting: whether that’s an intimate kitchen supper for two, or a celebration gourmet seven course menu within one of our hospitality customers’ fine dining settings.

We look forward to the announcements which are scheduled to be made during the autumn, with the accompanying award ceremony being held to coincide with the international consumer goods fair Ambiente 2020 (7th – 11th February, Frankfurt, Germany).
