The Miele Triflex HX2 hand vacuum cleaner is one of the prize winners of the Focus Open 2022. The hand vacuum cleaner, with replaceable battery, received the ‘Special Mention' prize. A total of 44 design awards were presented.
Patented 3-in-1 design
A handheld vacuum cleaner where you can decide for yourself whether the battery is on top or bottom of the motor unit. That makes the Miele Triflex HX2 unique. Thanks to this patented 3-in-1 design, you can move the weight of the vacuum cleaner up or down. When the PowerUnit of the vacuum cleaner is mounted on the top, you can easily vacuum under furniture.
However, moving the PowerUnit down also shifts the center of gravity down. This creates a balance that makes it easier to vacuum larger surfaces. In addition, with this position there is also the possibility to park the stick vacuum.
‘Special Mention' award
Reason enough for the jury of the Focus Open 2022 to praise the hand vacuum cleaner with the Special Mention prize. “This cordless hand-held vacuum cleaner's predecessor already excelled in terms of its flexible convertibility and its decidedly restrained use of forms. At the conception stage of the current series, design was once again center stage“, according to the jury.

In addition to the Miele Triflex HX2, Miele Benchmark devices also won awards. For example, the Benchmark Driers received a ‘Focus Silver' for their excellent quality. The Benchmark washing machines even received the highest award: ‘Focus Gold' for outstanding solutions aimed at the future.
“Although these are industrial machines, meticulous attention was not only attached to maximum functionality but also to aesthetics. Although not visible at first glance, design quality manifests itself in details and in consistent formal reduction“, sounds the verdict of the jury.
