    The design of the AXOR Shower stages the original way of transporting water. Narrow pipes define the extravagant, purist design of the hand shower, shower bar and thermostat. High-quality mirror glass connects to the thermostat and provides a practical shelf. The two integrated „select“ buttons on the front serve to control the PowderRain jet functions. Fine silicone nozzles create a cocoon of water that gently envelops the user. The shower system is available in 15 special surfaces.We surprise and touch – with aesthetic innovations that make sense. The AXOR ShowerHeaven 1200 unites purist design with top engineering. Different jet types provide a luxurious shower experience: the unique PowderRain jet, the large-area soft Rain jet, and a relaxing, meditative mono jet integrated into one head shower. At the push of a button, the individually adjustable wings will open up that have PowderRain sprinkle one’s entire body from the side, while the head area may be excepted – a pure 3D wellness experience. Integrated ambience lighting elements with state-of-the-art LED technology illuminate the shower while being energetically efficient. The warming light colour is particularly important for achieving a sense of well-being, presenting not only the shower but the people in it in their best light.

    RED DOT DESIGN AWARD 2020 – hansgrohe – Pontos Water Management

    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.

    RED DOT DESIGN AWARD 2020 – hansgrohe FinishPlus Design

    The new premium FinishPlus Design offers a great number of style options.

    RED DOT DESIGN AWARD 2020 – Schiedel – KINGFIRE – Gas

    Schiedel – European market leader for chimney and exhaust systems – represents heating, ventilation, and hence living. A cosy fire and fresh air add living comfort and quality of life, more safety and independence. The innovation of these completely pre-assembled chimney elements (stove and chimney are one unit) is evident e.g. at the construction site: the KINGFIRE stove systems can be installed safely in a very short time indeed. The discerning claim to interior design solutions has been made visible by Phoenix Design in terms of a reduced and clear design language for the KINGFIRE models LINERA and RONDO. The user needs and convenient operation together with the desire for a more intense experience of fire and warmth have been met e.g. by means of a curved door. Here, Phoenix Design has developed a unique and timeless design that's characteristic for the brand of Schiedel KINGFIRE models. Each finished product can be designed individually and is thus unique: whether clad with natural stone or ceramics, or sporting a modern and timeless plasterwork surface. New > KINGFIRE GAS

11x Red Dot Design Awards 2020
Best of the Best for Aquno Select M81

Stuttgart, 22 June 2020. Phoenix Design is honoured to receive 11 awards at the Red Dot Design Award 2020, among them one Best of the Best for the hansgrohe kitchen faucet Aquno Select M81. The international panel of nearly 40 jurors honoured only 76 of the more than 6,500 submitted products from 48 categories with the competition’s top accolade, the “Best of the Best”. Aquno has already received all important design awards, among them Gold at the German Design Award and Gold at the German Innovation Award. Further Red Dot Awards were given to sanitary products from the AXOR and hansgrohe brands, as well as to Schiedel (Kingfire fireplaces).

With the hansgrohe Aquno Select M81, PHOENIX is turning over a new page in the kitchen. This faucet series excels by its most efficient use of water. In its design, PHOENIX has taken into account the optimal workflow around the kitchen sink as well as the mindful handling of water, while at the same time ensuring top functionality and clear design. A new kitchen faucet archetype is born: the laminar spray jet precisely showers the food placed in the matching multi-function strainer. The vanguard faucet Aquno M81 with its roundly arched spout makes clear geometry and functionality converge, an ideal combination e.g. when filling large receptacles. A light tap on the kitchen faucet’s tablet activates the horizontal sprays: 133 micro-fine single sprays create a high-volume, yet water-saving shower. The Aquno Select M81’s minimalist language of form is continued through the rectangular lever used to control water flow and temperature with only one hand. The Aquno Select M81 represents a perfected, fluent, and easy workflow around the kitchen sink and is thus a perfect statement in terms of design-aware and modern kitchen design.

Statement by the Jury: Refreshingly innovative and elegantly implemented, the concept of the Aquno Select M81 reinterprets the kitchen mixer tap. It thus promotes an optimised workflow in the kitchen. Showcasing a highly attractive language of form, this model inspires with its concise design and clear lines. The accentuated edge guide in the lower fitting area goes hand in hand with an impressively sophisticated functionality and expanded options of how to let water flow.

About the Red Dot Design Award: In order to be able to professionally judge the many facets of design, the Red Dot Design Award is differentiated into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design, and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award is one of the largest design competitions worldwide. In 1955, a panel of jurors convened for the first time in order to evaluate the best designs at the time. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec developed the name and the brand of the award. Since then, the coveted “Red Dot” award has become the internationally renowned seal for outstanding design quality. www.red-dot.de.
