  • Best of Best - Iconic Awards 2020 Innovative Architecture - hansgrohe Lavapura ShowerToilet

    Best of Best - Iconic Awards 2020 Innovative Architecture - hansgrohe Lavapura ShowerToilet

    Designing the intelligent Smart Toilet Lavapura by hansgrohe, Phoenix gleaned inspiration from stand-alone bathtubs. The reduced language of forms is inviting in its architectural clarity. The graphical silhouette and the characteristic changes in material present a strong iconic value. While focussing on a seamless design facilitates cleaning, the overall design with its details picks up on the Rainfinity series by hansgrohe. Lavapura features an exceedingly useful operation panel.

    Best of Best - Iconic Awards 2020 Innovative Architecture - hansgrohe FinishPlus

    The new premium FinishPlus Design offers a great number of style options. While the new trend colours Matte White and Matte Black are subordinated to the architectural requirements, the metallic surfaces Brushed Black Chrome, Brushed Bronze and Polished Gold combine elegance and modernity. The Metropol basin mixer series, also designed by Phoenix, is another good case in point of how forms and colours create a harmonious spatial experience.

    Best of Best - Iconic Awards 2020 Innovative Architecture - hansgrohe Aquno Select

    Fluently easy and inimitable – that’s how the Aquno Select M81 kitchen mixer faucet by hansgrohe creates a trailblazing workflow around the kitchen sink. PHOENIX created the highly innovative design for this absolute kitchen novelty. The kitchen mixer faucet is particularly compelling thanks to its wide-array, soft SatinFlow water jet made up of micro-fine individual jets. In combination with the tailor-made multi-function strainer, culinary (pre-)preparation has never been easier, let alone so easy and efficient.

    Winner - Iconic Awards 2020 Innovative Architecture - Pontos

    The Pontos Water Management consists of two products developed in close collaboration between hansgrohe and Phoenix. Pontos Base and Pontos Scout are connected with the hansgrohe Home App on one’s smartphone. Pontos Base is the water guard installed at the main water pipe. It checks for leaks, automatically shuts off the water supply in the event of damage, informing the user with a push notification to their smartphone, thereby effectively limiting water damage and related costs. Pontos Scout devices can be positioned at every key point in the house: for detecting water leaks, sending messages to the user’s smartphone, and shutting off the main water supply via Pontos Base.
