Gold for Gold: AXOR ShowerPipe 800 wins
Phoenix Design receives together with its client Hansgrohe SE one German Design Award "Gold" for AXOR ShowerPipe 800. The international jury of the German Design Council honors the shower system designed by Phoenix Design with the highest award in the renowned competition.
The AXOR ShowerPipe 800 is an extravagant system of water channels in a purist pipe design staging the original way of transporting water. Newly interpreted with a thermostat that incorporates two »Select« buttons for easy and precise operation of overhead and hand-held showers including the innovative "PowderRain", as well as a spacious shelf made of fine glass.
The jury justifies its decision as follows: "(…) what AXOR has achieved with its ShowerPipe 800 more than exceeds all expectations, from the standpoint of both form and function. The ShowerPipe 800 water guiding system stands out from the competition already at first glance, thanks to its delicate design, which is reduced to the essentials, and its elemental design language – which does not visually dominate the bathroom decor, but instead merely rounds it out with elegant understatement."
Besides, AXOR MyEdition Faucet Series receives a "Winner" award – silver.
