Only the best products in a given category receive distinction
The successful market launch of the new hansgrohe C71 kitchen sink combinations has been crowned with an exceptional reward at the world renowned Red Dot design competition. “A Red Dot: Best of the Best award is something very special for us,” says a visibly pleased Jan Heisterhagen, Vice President, Product Management at Hansgrohe. “It is an important recognition of our performance in terms of product design and engineering. And it confirms our policy of focussing very closely on consumers and their everyday kitchen needs.”
Coveted seal of quality
Only the best products in a given category receive the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” distinction. Of the more than 5,500 products submitted in 2017, only 103 products in 47 categories received the coveted seal of quality. The range of creatively designed products considered for the award includes automobiles, fashion, interior design accessories, consumer electronics, sporting goods and household appliances. In addition to design, the 39 jurors in Essen evaluate innovation, functionality, ergonomics and ecological compatibility of the products.
More convenience in the kitchen
The hansgrohe C71 kitchen sink combinations were created in collaboration with the acclaimed Phoenix Design Studio based in Stuttgart. They merge a premium stainless steel designer sink with a matching “Made by Hansgrohe” tap, an intuitive operating concept and sophisticated technical components into a single convenient unit. The sink’s wide rim provides a stage-like setting, showcasing the tap and the control unit, which has been moved to the front right-hand side of the sink for added convenience.
