Hansgrohe and Axor Launch Design Competition

May 27, 2014

Hansgrohe is accepting entries for the inaugural Hansgrohe+Axor Das Design Competition. The competition invites architects and interior designers across the U.S. to enter recent projects that thoughtfully incorporate Hansgrohe and Axor products to create innovative or inspiring environments.

“We are extremely excited to launch a national design competition and add a new chapter to our subsidiary’s rich history,” said Erik Christensen, Hansgrohe USA president. “Das Design was developed to recognize our valued industry partners and celebrate the ways in which their work enhances two of the most important spaces in any project – the kitchen and the bath.”

The competition is open to projects that were built in the U.S. within the past three years (between January 1, 2011 and September 1, 2014), and there are four categories of entry: Residential, Hospitality, Commercial and Multi-Housing/High-Rise.

The competition jury will consist of A&D industry professionals and media, as well as representatives from Hansgrohe/Axor. Entries will be evaluated against five criteria: the quality of the overall design of the project and the integration of Hansgrohe or Axor products into the scheme; the degree that Hansgrohe/Axor products enhance the design and functionality of the space; the consideration of the environment and sustainability in the design; the quality of installation; and the extent of use of Hansgrohe/Axor products.

The winners of each category will receive a round trip to Germany, plus a three-night hotel accommodation to be part of a delegation attending ISH, the trade show for the combination of water and energy in building solutions, in Frankfurt in March 2015.

Entry is free with a deadline of Tuesday September 2, 2014, and can be done online at
