Best of German Interior Design
Around the world, German creators and manufacturers enjoy an excellent reputation. Best of German Interior Design presents the 50 most renowned German designers and 50 leading German manufacturers of home interior products as well as numerous iconic products “Made in Germany”. Phoenix Design is a part of it!
Since its start, the design studio has been one of the best-known addresses for industrial and product design. Phoenix develops products and entire product ranges at three locations, which are geared toward user requirements and self-explanatory interaction with the product. In doing so, Phoenix Design pursues the goal of creating products that let us experience its characteristic tangible brand identity, such as the AXOR Uno faucet series (2017), which creates an emotive response through a simple interchangeable lampshade in several popular colors. However, they also succeed in this through the close interlinking of product design and the design of digital interfaces, which have become increasingly important in recent years.
For more than 30 years, Phoenix Design has been designing Hansgrohe products in close co-operation with their in-house department for product development. In doing so, Phoenix Design has significantly contributed to the success and growth of Hansgrohe. With the shower head Raindance (2003), which can be decalcified with one touch, and the and Raindance Select (2011), which changes the jet strength at the push of a button, they have developed milestones. For Duravit, Phoenix Design has created the bathroom production line Caro (1989), which has been on offer unchanged in the manufacturer’s program since 1993 and now counts among the design classics. One of the new lines of the bathroom manufacturer, designed by Phoenix Design, is P3 Comforts (2014), which was awarded the IF DEISGN AWARD in Gold in 2015. Phoenix Design has designed the free-standing bathtub Ellipso Duo Oval (2009), a stylish highlight in elegant white as well as in luxurious black, for the avant-garde segment of Kaldewei.
Overall, Phoenix Design has received more than 750 design prizes since 1987.
