HANSGROHE+AXOR DAS COMPETITION
Celebrating Design Excellence In Projects Featuring Hansgrohe Or Axor Products
Hansgrohe U.S.A is proud to announce its nationwide call for entries for the second annual Hansgrohe+Axor Das Design Competition. The Hansgrohe and Axor brands are world renowned for their excellence in design, sustainability, performance and installation. With over 100 years of experience in the kitchen and bath industry, Hansgrohe has unbeatable expertise and respect for innovation. The competition celebrates these qualities in various contexts through real-world projects. U.S. architects and interior designers are invited to enter recent projects that thoughtfully incorporate Hansgrohe or Axor products to create innovative or inspiring environments, from hotel and restaurant bathrooms to private kitchens and baths, and more.
According to Hansgrohe USA President Erik Christensen, “We believe that good design deserves to be celebrated. Das Design was developed to recognize our valued industry partners and the ways in which their work sets the standards for the kitchen and the bath. Last year’s competition was a great success with outstanding participation from designers and architects from all across the country. We were particularly impressed with the caliber of projects and the wide range of products specified. We’re looking to build on this momentum and make 2015 another exceptional year.”
