Chasing the Wow Effect
Even if every new shower is different, innovation creator Feride knows: "There's always a solution." The experienced design engineer doesn't get unnerved by even the most unusual design suggestion. "After all, our products shouldn't just look good," says Feride. "They should function and offer people an exceptional showering experience. We're talking about Hansgrohe here, after all."
Most Hansgrohe employees often feel like part of a big family from day one. This is especially true in Feride's case. "My father worked at Hansgrohe until he retired, and so did my father-in-law. And that's not even all the family members" Feride laughs. She met her husband many years ago in the plastic molding department. "He was the one who first gave me the idea to do a retraining. Thanks to him, I have found my dream job."

Today, Feride can't even keep track of how many Hansgrohe showers she has developed throughout of her career. However, she will never forget her first major project as a design engineer: the first generation of the hansgrohe Rainmaker. "For the first prototype, I assembled 358 nozzles by hand. That was quite a challenge." But especially when it gets challenging, this is where the innovation creator Feride is completely in her element.
