OXFORD, Conn., January 18, 2024 (Newswire.com) - A part of their upcoming Harmony line of sink and bath storage items, Polder’s Absorb Dish Rack was designed to earn its space on the countertop as both an effective tool in the kitchen and a noteworthy aesthetic addition.
The construction of the dish rack centers on its sleek bamboo frame, and an integrated microfiber mat which soaks up excess water from washed items and then air-dries naturally. The mat acts like a ‘drying skin’ that is placed over the rack’s frame. The bottom of the mat uses a rubberized outer coating to trap any excess liquids from seeping through to the counter before drying.
The earthy aesthetic created between the mat and natural wood frame complements both contemporary and traditional kitchen decor styles. The use of bamboo for the frame and trays and the stretch material drying surfaces is a departure from the industry paradigm of plastics and metal. It has a more natural feel, enhances the home with its natural hues and tone and treats holding delicate items in a softer, safer fashion than traditional metal and rigid plastics.
Kerry Cooper, EVP at Polder states “The Absorb dish rack addresses consumers’ desire to have quality products that work well at their intended tasks while enhancing their living space. Our new dish racks are a great addition to the brand's legacy of award winning designs, and we are honored to be included in this year’s Good Design winners.”
Both versions of the dish rack are available for purchase in May 2024 on polder.com and at better retailers.
