Hansgrohe was delighted to receive the Gold award for Innovation in Design in the bathroom products category of the Designer Kitchen and Bathroom Awards 2014 for Axor ShowerProducts by Front.
Twelve judges drawn from all corners of the industry recognised the design merits of Axor ShowerProducts by Front which won ahead of hundreds of entrants.
Launched in 2013 by Axor, the designer brand of Hansgrohe SE, Axor ShowerProducts by Front uses water ‘pathways’ in their original form. Designed to draw attention to the hidden aesthetics of technology in a particularly elegant way, it turns pipes, joints, valves and funnels into design objects.
A total of five Axor products for the shower zone bear the signature of Front: a hand shower; a shower set consisting of a hand shower, a wall bar and a shower hose; an overhead shower as a ceiling or wall-mounted version with two different spray types and a showerpipe consisting of a thermostat, a height-adjustable overhead shower and a hand shower.
The award was collected by Martin Mongan, managing director, Hansgrohe UK, who says: “We are delighted to be recognised as one of the design pioneers in the sanitary industry.
“Thanks to our close collaboration with experienced architects and designers such as the Swedish design trio Front, we are able to create intuitive designs which combine functionality with sophisticated aesthetics in order to provide our customers with the highest standard in terms of product design and innovation.”
