Hansgrohe USA Concludes 2015 with Multiple Awards

February 15, 2016

Hansgrohe USA, Hansgrohe’s North American subsidiary, begins its 20th year in Georgia with several awards and honors under its belt. The Hansgrohe and Axor brands earned recognition from local associations like the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Georgia Chapter for outstanding product design, as well as garnering a Best of Year Award from Interior Design magazine and landing a spot on Better Homes & Gardens 30 Most Innovative Products list. 

Hansgrohe USA has been recognized by Houzz as “Best of Houzz” for the third year in a row. The Hansgrohe profile page has been a resource for both designers and consumers with its product images, projects and positive reviews from members of the architecture and design industry. To commemorate the honor, the Hansgrohe page now has a “Best Of Houzz 2016” badge on its profile.  

Recognizing the best of Georgia’s commercial and residential design each year, the ASID 2015 Design Awards awarded Hansgrohe the ASID Silver Design Award for Product/Custom Design by an Industry Partner at the ASID Design Excellence Awards.  

Hansgrohe Shower Select Trims and the Axor LampShower by Nendo were chosen by Architectural Record magazine as “Products of the Year.” They were selected from the hundreds of entries submitted to the magazine’s annual competition. Jurors rated each hopeful according to innovation, usefulness and aesthetics. The Products of the Year were also featured in the December issue.  

The Hansgrohe PuraVida collection and the Metris S Electronic Faucet won an Architectural Products Product Innovation Award. The competition highlights companies and products that excel beyond industry standards based on design, function and environmental responsibility. The PuraVida collection and the Metris S Electronic Faucet were selected out of a large number of submissions by a jury of industry professionals who were assigned product categories based upon their experience and expertise. 

Each year, Interior Design sponsors the annual Best of Year design competition in recognition of superior interior design products. Top architects and designers selected awards recipients via online vote. The Axor Massaud collection earned the Best of Year title in the “Best in 10” bath category, which celebrates the best designs of the decade.   

The Axor LampShower by Nendo was awarded “Best in Bath” at the Boutique Design New York show. The jury chose the Axor LampShower because it demonstrated functional and aesthetic progress and innovation. 

The Axor ShowerProducts by Front have been recognized as among Better Homes & Gardens’ most innovative kitchen and bath products of 2015. The publication’s editors critique a large number of submissions to determine which are the most functional, stylish and technological products in the kitchen and bath world. Finalists are narrowed down to only 30. The winners are featured in the Spring 2016 issue of Better Homes & Gardens Kitchen & Bath Ideas.  

Hansgrohe ranks in the Top 10 in the Plumbing Category in Contract magazine’s 2015 Brand Report. The industry magazine surveyed readers, asking them what manufacturers they recommend specifying in various categories.
