  • Hansgrohe was presented with the iF gold award at the iF DESIGN AWARD ceremony in Munich on March 15, 2019, for its new Rainfinity shower range.
  • The jury’s statement about Rainfinity: “The Rainfinity shower range combines excellent craftsmanship with consistent proportions and an impressive mix of materials. With its contrasting black and white, hansgrohe offers an outstanding alternative to the characteristic chrome look of conventional taps.”
  • The Rainfinity range is also available in Ecosmart version for added water savings.

“We’re especially proud that Rainfinity won the iF gold award because Hansgrohe creates new accents in the bathroom with Rainfinity. It’s the shower range for discerning wellness and design enthusiasts,” explains Marc André Palm, Head of Global Brand Marketing for Hansgrohe.

The Hansgrohe Group, to which both the Hansgrohe and AXOR brand belong, received a total of eight awards. “Once again, these eight iF DESIGN AWARDS are a huge confirmation of our design goal of always combining the aesthetic design of a product with quality, ease of use, and real customer benefits,” says Olivier Sogno, Vice President of Marketing at Hansgrohe SE.

Showering from a Whole New Perspective

Thanks to its overall composition of innovative technology, stylish design, and superior quality, Rainfinity opens up a new dimension of showering. With its concave shape and innovative wall connection, which makes the conventional shower arm superfluous, Rainfinity is nothing short of a trendsetter. The modern surface in elegant, matte white and the contemporary graphite of the simply structured jet disc are a visual highlight in the bathroom.

Rainfinity is a head shower that envelops the entire body from head to toe in water. But thanks to the innovative wall connection, the head can also be protected from the spray, as the tilt of the head shower can be adjusted between 10 and 30 degrees, thus guaranteeing a comfortable showering position that, if desired, keeps your face and hair dry.

The shower experience is further enhanced by the slightly concave spray surface and the irregular arrangement of the jet disc holes. This combination ensures that the spray of water isn’t limited to the head and shoulders as usual, but softly envelops the body with water.

The Rainfinity range also comes in an EcoSmart version which ensures water savings without compromising on water pressure and the overall Rainfinity shower experience.
