American Standard's Spectra+ Touch and Spectra+ eTouch showerheads and ActiClean self-cleaning toilet have been named 2017 GOOD DESIGN Award recipients in the bath category for design excellence. This award is presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

The Spectra+ Touch shower head changes spray patterns with a simple touch on the outside ring of the shower head, making it easy to customize the shower experience, even with wet hands. The Spectra+ eTouch shower head includes a remote control to mount on any shower surface, providing a stylish, ergonomically designed solution for users who have difficulty reaching the shower head due to age, height or mobility restrictions.

The ActiClean system is a toilet that cleans itself with a simple press of a button. It combines the power of the revolutionary VorMax flushing technology — which delivers the cleanest flush ever engineered — with a fully integrated self-cleaning system. Simply press a button, walk away, and let the toilet do the rest.

Plus, ActiClean eliminates the need for add-on after-market cleaning solutions that may not work with high-efficiency toilets like this WaterSense-certified model that uses a single powerful jet of only 1.28 gallons of water per flush.

GOOD DESIGN is the world's oldest and most prestigious design program. Each year, The Chicago Athenaeum presents the GOOD DESIGN Awards for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world. One of the main factors for the awards selection is based on whether or not a product can enrich society and people's lives through its design.
