2015 Das Design Winners

Hansgrohe USA is pleased to announce the results of its second annual Hansgrohe + Axor Das Design Competition, which attracted outstanding entries from around the country. Open to architects and designers across the U.S., the competition celebrates excellence in design, sustainability, and installation of products from the Hansgrohe brand and the Axor brand in real-world projects. After careful consideration, a jury of media and Hansgrohe representatives selected two winners and three honorable mentions in the Residential Category as well as one winner and one honorable mention in the Hospitality Category.

Hansgrohe USA President Erik Christensen remarks, “We are always excited to see where our products have been used. This competition offers us a lens into intelligent and inspiring interiors around the country and demonstrates the range and versatility within the two brands. As a whole, this year’s selection of winners covered the map – from Massachusetts to Oregon and points in between. It’s a testament to our products, to our A&D and trade partners and to our incredible team.”

The jury remarked upon the exceptional overall quality of submissions and the wide range of products specified. Michael Reiman, a Hansgrohe international project consultant, adds, “I continue to be impressed by the caliber of the projects submitted. The applicants were incredibly strong this year and I commend all those that entered. The winning projects gave careful consideration to the use and application of each of the products within the context of their design brief and clients’ needs.”

The winning architect or designer of each category will receive two thousand dollars towards products of the Hansgrohe brand and the Axor brand as well as a round trip to New York so they can be recognized in front of their peers at an awards ceremony on October 6, 2015.
