Design Team: Cesaroni Design & Wolf Engineering

The product designers at Cesaroni Design worked closely with Wolf Appliance's internal marketing and engineering teams to develop an award winning product line of Dual Fuel Ranges in 30-inch36-inch, 48-inch and 60-inch sizes.

The project challenge was to create consumer ranges with commercial performance, bringing the Wolf brand name into stronger market visibility. Our client's technological innovations required the integration of new, energy efficient and user-friendly electronic controls into the new product line, without losing their professional brand identity.

The industrial designers walked a fine line between looking too commercial and too residential. The unique design solution down played the sophisticated electronics and featured the durability of commercial equipment. This design strategy established a level of aesthetic detail refinement that could integrate the appliance into vastly different residential kitchen environments.

The project team developed full-scale foam core mockups to maximize user experience. Model testing helped the project team evaluate the user interface design. This ensured that the concealed electronic control panel would pivot open at an appropriate ergonomic viewing angle.

Another innovative ergonomic feature is the patented control knob design. This unique design incorporates LED lighting technology to display the temperature. Function graphics are printed on the most visible surface for easy legibility.

The exterior of the new appliance design is constructed of stainless steel with an elliptically shaped stainless steel handle and investment cast stainless steel endcaps. The porcelain-coated cast iron burner grates appear commercially robust. They are cored out from the bottom in order to be easily removable for cleaning.

Wolf Appliance has been ranked #1 by J.D. Power and Associates in the Range/Cooktop/Oven category of their 2010 Home Appliance Study. This satisfaction study is based on ease of use; performance and reliability; styling and feel; features; and warranty.

This award winning major appliance design won both an Excellence in Design Award and a Good Design Award for the new product design.
