2008 Product Innovator Awards Honoring the Most Innovative New Products of the Year What makes a product innovative? That was the question our esteemed panel of judges was asked to ponder when evaluating this year’s submissions for the K+BB Product Innovator Awards. The entries were rated on originality, aesthetics, functionality and consumer appeal—after all, the homeowner must want the product to make it really worthwhile! The submissions varied greatly but, in the end, one thing all of the winners had in common was convenience, whether a kitchen or bath product, refrigerator or drain. For innovation is about making the lives of your clients run a little bit smoother, in turn making your jobs a little bit easier.
