LONDON, 09 MARCH 2015 – Canon, world-leader in imaging solutions, has today announced that its Océ PlotWave 500 wide format printing system has been awarded an iF Gold Product Design Award at the iF Design Awards 2015. The Océ PlotWave 500 was one of seven Canon products to receive a prestigious award at the event.
The recently launched Océ ColorWave 500 and 700, and Océ ColorWave 900 wide format printers also won iF Product Design Awards, alongside several other Canon devices, marking the 21st consecutive year that Canon has received iF Design Awards for its products.
“The Océ PlotWave and ColorWave printers represent the perfect balance of visual and functional design,” said Duncan Smith, Wide Format Printing Group Director, Canon UK. “They feature unique internal elements to deliver high quality and reliable print output at high speeds. Ergonomic features make the printers easy to use, while high quality aesthetics make them fit naturally into any working environment. Finally, the touchscreen-based user interface is a particularly unique design element, providing an intuitive and reliable print workflow.
“The iF Design Awards are well respected worldwide for setting the standard in modern technology design, and it is an honour to receive awards for our Océ ColorWave and PlotWave range, including an iF Gold Product Design Award for the Océ PlotWave 500.”
