CALHOUN, Ga., April 14, 2020 /3BL Media/ - The Edison Awards winners were announced today, and Mohawk’s Air.o hypoallergenic soft flooring took the bronze for the consumer goods – home solutions category.
“Being recognized with an Edison Award is an honor and one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business,” said Jamie Welborn, vice president of product management. “From the time we rolled out our first carpets to today, we’ve worked hard to develop revolutionary product innovations. Air.o is not only innovative, it’s also a solution that no one else can offer consumers. Hypoallergenic soft flooring changes how shoppers think about carpet, and we will continue to build on our successful product line.”
Air.o’s unique, unified construction does not absorb any moisture, inhibiting the growth of allergens such as mold, mildew and dust mites. This construction simplifies the installation process and provides 50 percent more airflow when vacuumed, making it easy to clean by releasing more dust, dirt and pet dander. Air.o is also VOC free and latex-free with no new carpet smell.
“When we say Air.o provides ‘pure peace of mind’ for homeowners, we want this to apply to every aspect, including the design front,” explained Angela Duke, director of brand marketing. “With our 2020 ColorMax intros, consumers will be blown away that they can have soft flooring that’s better for their family with incredible color and blended style to uplift their homes aesthetically.”
Air.o recently achieved rigorous Declare Red List-free status certification from the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), as well as a Health Product Declaration (HPD) from the Health Product Declaration Collaborative.
Among the nomination entries comprising the best products, services and businesses in innovation for the year 2020, Air.o was chosen as a winner by a panel of over 3,000 leading business executives from around the world.
“After a thorough review, the Edison Awards Judges recognize Air.o as a game-changing innovation standing out among the best new products launched in their category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.
