Three Winners from China
This year, the Hansgrohe Design Prize by iF followed the motto “Future Living: Innovative Forms of Using Water in Tomorrow’s Kitchen”. For the seventh time, this international prize for up-and-coming design talent was awarded by Hansgrohe SE and hosted by iF in Hannover. Andreas Haug, Phoenix Design Managing Partner & Founder, was part of the panel of expert jurors who selected the winners.
493 concepts were submitted for the competition, of which 165 made it onto the “final list”. Three of the five prize-winning concepts for “Using water in the kitchen” were from design talents from China.
Phoenix Design has been designing products and interactions for clients in China for years. In 2017, we expand our presence by opening a studio in Shanghai. It is precisely this outstanding design intelligence and the tangible innovation power that make this market so exciting.
