Design is more than just about appearance
Design professionals agree that emotional design is good design. But what good is design in theory? That inspirational feeling of loving something goes much deeper than that.
When it comes to design, most people only think of the outer appearance. And yet design is much more – it is the sum of aesthetics, functionality, materials, operation and experience. The design of the bathroom products from Axor and Hansgrohe is the result of years of research work. This is why the showers and faucets also “work” on international markets as well – and are loved around the world.
Consumer test turns handshower into the “Next Top Model”
Hansgrohe sent 500 product testers under the shower for a four-week handshower check. To sum up: practically all of them found the three-jet Raindance Select E 120 handshower beautiful. 97 percent of the testers liked the exceptional design. The rounded corners – known as SoftCube – were also a hit with 97 percent of the testers. 96 percent liked the refined surface finish on the shower, which is available in chrome or a fresh color combination of white and chrome. According to the testers, the main reason for preferring the Raindance Select E 120 over their old shower head was the product design.
