    German Design Awards 2021 - Gold for RainButton

    RainButton represents a new, flexible and intuitive way of showering. The control buttons, which can be placed anywhere, control the precise spray type, temperature and amount of water – all with just a tap of the finger. For the first time, the control and valves are separated. The user determines the placement. Without a fitting and the necessary wall holes, the worries of bathroom planning disappear behind the wall. This enables a completely new ease of use and bathroom design.

  • Winner for Water Management System Pontos

    Winner for Water Management System 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.

  • Winner for LavaPura Smart Toilet

    Winner for LavaPura Smart Toilet

    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.

  • Winner for FinishPlus

    Winner for 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.
