Hansgrohe Group Presents Faucets and Showers for Sustainable Use of Water and Inspires with New Surface Colors and Outdoor Showers

Salone del Mobile 2022: Save the Date

Schiltach, May 2022. When the world's leading trade fair for furniture and design opens its doors in June, Milan will become the showplace of the international interior design industry. AXOR and hansgrohe, the two brands of the Hansgrohe Group, are geared to impress visitors at this year’s Salone del Mobile with groundbreaking innovations for the bathroom and kitchen. From June 07 - 12, 2022, architects, interior designers and the design-savvy public will be able to see water-saving faucets and showers, as well as color trends in the bathroom, for themselves at a Hansgrohe Group booth divided into two brand worlds.

"The Hansgrohe Group has reliably and steadily earned a name for itself as a leading company in innovation, quality, design and responsibility for people and the environment," explains Hans Jürgen Kalmbach, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Hansgrohe Group. "For decades, good design and the highest quality standards are understood by us. But with our products, we go far beyond good form: we think of water in bathrooms and kitchens in completely new dimensions, add functional value to it and thus create an emotional water experience. At the same time, we have new faucets and showers that, thanks to their low consumption, enable sustainable use of water as a resource, without compromising comfort. Architects and interior designers will get their money's worth with the new lacquered surfaces, such as matt black or a curated color palette by Barber Osgerby for AXOR One. Philippe Starck fans are likely to be captivated by AXOR's first outdoor shower system. All in all, surrounded by a booth that will create an impressive atmosphere for our guests," Kalmbach says. "

Our two brands present themselves as two very different and exciting worlds under a common sky," explains Tobias Hollerbach, Head of Corporate Architecture, Hansgrohe SE. The design brand AXOR, as a representative of individual luxury, shows its design icons in artistically and creatively designed mini worlds that reflect the personality of the faucets. Distinctive ambience and individualized products in a contrasting staged environment, embedded in a huge, abstracted wave, underline the luxurious and curative claim of the brand. The premium brand hansgrohe sets an exciting contrast here. The RainTunes digital shower experience is integrated into various sceneries that can be experienced. Natural and haptically exciting materials, flowing and soft structures, create an atmosphere of retreat and relaxation for the visitor. The elements are surrounded by a dune landscape. As a result, a visit to the trade fair is more like a relaxed walk on the beach, where the digital and innovative world of hansgrohe can be discovered and experienced," says Hollerbach.
