Gold for hansgrohe at German Design Award 2020
Hansgrohe garnered its second design award this year in Frankfurt am Main.
Following its “Best of the Best” distinction at the ICONIC AWARD 2020 in January, the hansgrohe Aquno Select M81 kitchen faucet brought home Gold at the German Design Awards. Further awards were also given out for the hansgrohe M54 kitchen tap, the hansgrohe Rainfinity shower family, the AXOR Showers product programme and the AXOR Edge washbasin mixer product programme.
An international panel of experts evaluated more than 5,000 product and project submissions with the goal of discovering, presenting, and honoring unique design trends. The panel was excited about hansgrohe’s exclusive innovation from the world of the kitchen: “The M81 kitchen faucet offers an innovative feature that makes washing and cleaning food even easier and – above all – gentler. Thanks to the countless tiny jets integrated into the broad base, the water comes out in a fanned-out stream – similar to a shower – which is particularly gentle on food. An extremely intriguing development that, together with the straight lines and clear design of the base, is also very visually appealing.”
“We are thrilled to have been honored with gold at one of the most renowned design competitions in the world. This confirms our innovative strength in the worlds of kitchen and bath, and also honors our design process,” expressed Marc André Palm, Head of Global Brand Marketing for hansgrohe. “The whole team is especially proud, because – with Rainfinity – hansgrohe is setting new standards in the bathroom. They’re products for discerning lovers of wellness and design. And the Aquno Select M81 is an entirely new concept for an efficient water workflow in the kitchen – a kitchen faucet for ambitious gourmets for whom cooking is more than just simply preparing meals.”
