  • hansgroghe is a five-time Best of the Best award-winner and most recently, winner of the ICONIC Awards: Innovative Architecture.

The ICONIC AWARDS honour innovative architecture at its best. Judged by an internationally respected, impartial design and architecture panel, the competition evaluates holistic projects in the fields of architecture, interior architecture, product design and brand communication.

hansgrohe’s water-wise products feature the latest in environmentally friendly design that is both minimalist and undeniably beguiling. And the range of ICONIC Award winners is testament to the inimitable #hansfactor – a commitment to seamless, aesthetically pleasing, sustainable design:

The hansgrohe Pulsify shower range opens a world of possibilities for your shower experience – even if space or budget is limited. This “small package” explodes with luxury, with a generous 260-millimeter overhead shower featuring adjustable angles, so you can comfortably relax after a stressful day’s work. The microfine PowderRain spray mode even creates a gentle rain-like sensation that takes the luxury up another notch.

Spray modes can be varied, and you can switch between hand-held and overhead at the touch of a button. Temperature and water volume controls are integrated into the ShowerTablet thermostat, and the handy shelf has plenty of space for shower gel, shampoo, and a place to park the hand-held shower. And if you follow the latest design trends, Pulsify is also available in trendy Matt Black.

The hansgrohe Finoris mixer range with its “Flex” variant offers ample freedom of movement and makes those everyday chores easy. Quickly washing your hair directly in the basin is no longer a problem with the pull-out tap head. And to top it all off, it makes the basin easy to rinse out. Buckets for cleaning and other tall containers can also be filled in no time at all.

Its gentle PowderRain spray or a smooth laminar spray changes with a flick of the wrist and the push of a button. Both spray modes use no more than five liters of water per minute.

Fitted with ecoSmart technology, the hansgrohe Vivenis range also saves you water and energy. Image credit: hansgrohe


A uniquely refreshing water experience awaits with hansgrohe’s Vivenis taps. The new hansgrohe Vivenis range creates a wide arc of water through air-enriched flow into the basin. The elegant shape of the curved spout is followed through in the shape of the water spray. With its slender and discreet design, hansgrohe Vivenis flows like a gentle waterfall to refresh your hands and face while you bask in the precious element of water.

When you control your water experiences with RainButton, the faucet disappears completely. Instead, you can place the control buttons, totally detached, in your shower – for one-of-a-kind comfort and freedom of movement. Image credit: hansgrohe


Operate your shower with the mobile, high-tech RainButton. If you want to shower with a preconfigured RainTunes music playlist, just send your selection to your shower via the hansgrohe home app and start it conveniently in the shower using the Play button.

RainButtons are made to match your shower design in matt white or chrome. The LED display is kept under safety glass for maximum protection and large icons tell you how warm your shower water is or which shower is active. The battery-operated RainButton charges on an induction charging pad around every two or three months, depending on use and the number of people in your home.

No bathroom is complete without the necessary care items that make pampering yourself possible. And you can keep your soaps, shampoos, creams and other must-haves out of the way but well within reach with hansgrohe’s XtraStoris system.

XtraStoris is a recessed wall storage solution that creates extra space and enhances the look of your bathroom. This space-saving revelation gives you the ultimate freedom of movement in the shower and integrates perfectly into your design. XtraStoris is available in three variants, multiple surface finishes and dimensions.
