Following the news of Epson’s recent accolade, Sharp has revealed that it has scooped its own iF award for its A4 digital MFP.
Sharp Corporation says it is proud to announce that its MX-B455W/B355W black-and-white A4-size digital MFP has won a 2019 iF Design Award, cited as one of the world’s most prestigious product design awards.
The iF Design Award recognises outstanding design in seven categories, such as Product, Packaging, and Communication (including web design). For all categories combined, the 2019 awards drew 6,375 entries from 52 countries. Sharp’s MFP won in the Product category.
Sharp’s goal was to design an A4 MFP that could be used next to a desk without being obtrusive. Aiming for a clean, streamlined form without protruding parts, Sharp arrived at a softly curved silhouette. What’s more, this MFP has the same easy-to-use interface found on larger Sharp A3 machines. This means offices of any size can now enjoy the same user-friendly operation.
The functions and specifications of the MX-B455W/B355W are designed to boost office productivity. The MX-B455W version offers high-speed colour scanning at 110 opm (two-sided)—one of the fastest scan speeds in the industry, according to Sharp. Another highlight is connectivity with cloud services such as Google Drive and OneDrive.
