Hansgrohe Group delivers luxurious water experiences through its emphasis on intelligent design, quality and durability
“Our customers are assured of enjoying products with superb functional quality and trendsetting technologies, as well as exceptional ease of use.” — KC Lee, managing director, Hansgrohe Singapore
As a proud homeowner, you want solutions that are not only functional and aesthetically appealing but they should also make daily routines more pleasurable. Delivering just that for 116 years is German company Hansgrohe Group, whose brands AXOR and hansgrohe are known for bathroom and kitchen fittings that celebrate innovation, design and quality.
AXOR is synonymous with luxurious taps, shower heads and accessories, the result of collaborations with influential names in design and architecture including Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio and Jean-marie Massaud. Believing that “form follows perfection”, its collections embody trendsetting technology and aesthetic beauty. Meanwhile, hansgrohe is known for creating precious moments in water interactions in the kitchen and bathroom through ground-breaking solutions that unite impeccable design, durability and intelligent features.
The group’s history is marked by innovations such as the Selecta hand shower (1968), the world’s first hand shower with adjustable jet types; the intuitive Select technology (2011) that was introduced to Raindance showers for users to “select their shower pleasure” at the click of a button; and the AXOR One, a design collaboration with Barber & Osgerby where a single control unit allows users to manipulate everything from water volume to temperature setting.
“Whether it’s with the transparent crystal glass mixer AXOR Starck V where one can enjoy the view of the powerful water vortex every time the mixer is turned on or the recently launched hansgrohe kitchen sink combinations that draw on years of kitchen design expertise, the latest product or technology by Hansgrohe Group never fails to intrigue customers. They also become trendsetters as they create their dream kitchens and bathrooms with the name at the forefront of innovation,” says KC Lee, managing director of Hansgrohe Singapore. The group is also committed to the environment. “The Raindance Handshowers, for instance, are equipped with Air Power technology, which draws in air to enrich water, producing water droplets which softly enwrap one’s skin. This makes showering more enjoyable and acts as a water-saving feature.”
Adding to its more than 500 awards, Hansgrohe Group came in sixth in the if Company Ranking 2017 making it the top sanitary fittings brand and top-ranked German company.
