For over 60 years, the International Forum Design (iF) Design Award has been recognised internationally as a symbol of outstanding design. Hansgrohe SE currently ranks eleventh in the iF ranking, making it the top manufacturer in the sanitation industry. Given the highest recognition for outstanding design achievements, eight products made by Hansgrohe SE have been honoured with the iF Award 2016.
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.
Hansgrohe SE outperformed some 2,000 companies, beating even top brands such as Daimler, Volkswagen and Adidas. Philippe Grohe, Vice President of Design Management at Hansgrohe SE, said, “We’re very pleased about having again received a shower of iF DESIGN awards. 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. 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.
