The mixer and shower manufacturer from the Black Forest currently holds eleventh place in the iF company ranking list, taking the lead over its competition in the sanitation industry. Hansgrohe SE outperformed some 2,000 companies, beating even top brands such as Daimler, Volkswagen and Adidas.
An international jury of 58 experts assessed more than 5,000 entries from 53 countries in categories such as quality of design, workmanship, degree of innovation, environmental compatibility and functionality. The coveted iF DESIGN AWARD was granted to 1,821 products.
“We’re very pleased about having again received a shower of iF DESIGN awards,” says Philippe Grohe, Vice President of Design Management at Hansgrohe SE. “This recognition clearly confirms our design philosophy of always combining the aesthetic design of a product with quality and ease of use to offer our customers a high level of benefit.”
Together, the two Hansgrohe SE brands received a total of eight awards from the International Forum Design (iF). The award-winning Axor products are its new all-in-one Axor One shower control unit, the Axor ShowerSelect thermostats, and the Axor Citterio Select kitchen mixer.
The premium brand Hansgrohe impressed the jury with its Talis E washbasin mixer, its range of Croma Select overhead showers, the Crometta S 240 showerpipe, the Crometta E 240 overhead shower and the Crometta hand shower.
Hansgrohe will present a selection of these winning products at its booth at the SHK ESSEN trade fair from 9 to 12 March 2016.
