hansgrohe Designflex Planet Edition

Form Follows Sustainability

Schiltach, October 2023. Interior design fans know this all too well: Textiles make a room feel cosy. The bathroom only becomes a personal retreat after a fluffy bathroom rug and matching towels have moved in. The hansgrohe textile shower hose Designflex follows this rule. Its warm look and feel make the shower even more comfortable. And the best thing about the innovative product: the robust yarn of the Designflex shower hose is made from recycled plastic bottles. Designflex not only a modern design piece, its innovative cover made from recycled PET material contributes to the circular economy and thus supports a sustainable lifestyle.

Durable Individual Pieces

The recycled PET material guarantees durability and resistance to moisture. Because of these properties, recycled yarn is also used in other fields that require enormous weather resistance. For example, sailing technology, outdoor furniture production and medical technology also use this material. An innovative braiding technique ensures that the individual, multicolored threads are tightly woven. This technique gives Designflex its individual appearance. Designflex from hansgrohe is available in six colors. This makes the shower hose an ideal fit with the brand's FinishPlus surface program.

Lightness Meets Safety

hansgrohe Designflex invites lightheartedness into the shower. The innovative product weighs around 30 percent less than a conventional shower hose from hansgrohe. For easy installation, Designflex is compatible with all standard hand-held showers. The tightly woven yarn results in a particularly water-resistant and dirt-repellent surface of the hose. This makes Designflex particularly easy to clean. Of course, the recycled shower hose complies with relevant drinking water laws and regulations.

Other Recycled Collection Highlights

Planet Edition is what hansgrohe calls its collection of particularly sustainable products made from recycled plastic. In addition to Designflex, hansgrohe also offers a particularly water-saving hand-held shower made of recycled plastic. The hansgrohe Pulsify Planet Edition uses only around 6 liters of water per minute. The hansgrohe Planet Edition product range also includes the popular hansgrohe WallStoris Planet Edition accessories collection. All products come in the color ‘Sand’.
