More than 500 international awards
Design quality is part of the award-winning DNA of the mixer and shower manufacturer from Schiltach. That is great news for you too, since the awards, which are conferred by independent judging panels, highlight the company's high quality standards. They are a reliable guide when it comes to selecting outstanding products which are impressive in terms of both their technology and their aesthetics. For example, the mixer and shower manufacturer from the Black Forest has won the “Red dot – Best of the Best Design Award” several times, as well as the “iF Gold Product Design Award” and, three years in a row, the “Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland” – Germany's most prestigious official design award, regarded as “the award of all awards”.
Hansgrohe is iF design leader in the sector
The “iF awards” from the International Forum Design (iF) are some of the most important globally recognised seals of approval when it comes to product and design quality. The Hansgrohe Group regularly emerges as the winner of iF competitions. Since 2008, the independent institution has also produced a ranking table, indicating companies’ level of success in the design competition for the iF award. Here, the Hansgrohe Group is currently in 6th place out of around 2,000 listed companies. The company is therefore ahead of top brands such as Apple, BMW or Siemens, and is iF design leader within the sanitation industry. The Hansgrohe Group is the top-placed German company in the iF Design ranking 2017.
Our designers are also at the top of their game
Top marks from North America to the Far East: for the AXOR and hansgrohe brands, this confirms that they are resolutely on course – thanks to their product innovation and design. In 2009, the star-studded judging panel of the magazine “Euro” confirmed the fact that the Hansgrohe Group is involved with the crème de la crème of creative innovators outside the company: four of the world's 25 best designers work with AXOR and hansgrohe. Phoenix Design are in 6th place in the current “iF ranking creative”. The design studio has been shaping the hansgrohe brand image for decades, and is one of the world’s top names in industrial and product design.
