2016 Das Design Winners

Hansgrohe Announces Winners of Third Annual Hansgrohe + AXOR Design Competition

Hansgrohe USA is pleased to announce the results of its third annual hansgrohe + AXOR Das Design Competition. Open to U.S. architects and designers, the competition celebrates excellence in design, sustainability and installation of hansgrohe® and AXOR® products in built projects. This year’s edition drew a record-breaking number of entries from across the country. After careful deliberation, a jury of established trade and shelter media and Hansgrohe representatives named one winner 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, “It's been said that good design is in the details. While kitchen and bath fixture installation tends to occur in the later stages of the building and renovation process, selecting the right fixtures is critical. Any superlatively built project, like those in this year’s batch of fantastic Das Design entry submissions, is emblematic of how the details and finishing touches make a difference.”

The jury was in agreement that the submissions were sustainably minded, exceptionally executed, and overall, remarkable. Michael Reiman, a Hansgrohe international project consultant, comments, “With each year, the bar gets set even higher. The 2016 project entries embodied a superior level of excellence, and are indicative of the importance of great design and consistency in every room. It is always a pleasure to see how Architects and Designers are incorporating hansgrohe and AXOR products so skillfully.”

The Hansgrohe + AXOR Das Design Competition results will be posted online at www.dasdesigncomp.com and shared across Hansgrohe @hansgroheusa and AXOR NYC @axornyc social media channels.
