The new pressure washer series – Nilfisk Excellent, has received the acknowledged German Design Award 2023. The Scandinavian simplistic design focusing on basic geometric shapes and an intuitive user interface with the fewest touchpoints possible is among the details emphasized by the judges.


The Nilfisk pressure washer series is awarded in the “Excellent Design” category. It is characterized by its innovative design, high performance, and functionality. Especially the new Multipurpose Gun & Lance system with a three-in-one nozzle that adapts to various cleaning tasks.

“We are delighted to receive the German Design Award 2023 for the new Excellent product. It’s to the credit of the multi-disciplinary team that we have won this prestigious design award for the second time in three years. I’d like to share my personal thanks to all those who have contributed to this collective achievement”, says Ian Buckle, Vice President, Head of Brand & Design at Nilfisk.

Nilfisk also received the German Design Award in 2021 for the Nilfisk Core series, which is the predecessor of the Excellent series. The same year the Core series was also given the prestigious Red Dot Design Award, with a special focus on its functionality.

The Nilfisk Excellent range also introduces a new Foam Sprayer that creates shaving cream-like foam that dwells longer on surfaces and increases cleaning performance.

“Translating user insights into great experience outcomes is at the heart of all our design work. With the new Excellent products, we strive to increase the everyday user experience through simple, intuitive, and meaningful innovation that increases productivity and pleasure of use”, says Ian Buckle

About the new Nilfisk Excellent series

A three-in-one nozzle system adapts to various cleaning tasks around the home. Everything from ingrained dirt to delicate surfaces can be cleaned with the Multipurpose Nozzle. With a twist of the lance, a new nozzle can be selected. For the most delicate tasks, a small Short-Range Nozzle can be attached directly to the gun. The all-new Foam Sprayer function creates a shaving cream-like foam that clings to dirty surfaces, and the induction motor delivers high-pressure cleaning with low noise.
