“Potential for innovation in the field of kitchen sinks is by no means exhausted”

HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE 2017 by iF: Many entries and inspiring winning concepts

This year’s motto for the HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE by iF was: “Future Living: Innovative Forms of Using Water in Tomorrow’s Kitchen”. This international competition for young designers was held by Hansgrohe Group for the seventh time and organized by iF in Hannover. 493 concepts were entered in the competition, 165 of which made it to the “final list”.

Five innovative ideas had convinced the panel of experts and were awarded with the coveted HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE 2017 by iF and shared a total of EUR 5,000 in prize money. The HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE by iF was organized as a main topic under the umbrella of the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017.

A platform for young designers

Jan Heisterhagen, Vice President Product Management at Hansgrohe SE, was delighted with the accomplishments of the young designers: ‘I’m very impressed with the creativity with which the young, international students approached this year’s topic. The many entries and inspiring winning concepts are proof positive that the potential for innovation in the field of kitchen fixtures and fittings and kitchen sinks is by no means exhausted. We have been dealing with the most important water source in the household for more than 30 years and are happy that we have been successful in motivating the designers of tomorrow once again this year. We want to encourage new talent with the HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE by iF and offer young designers a platform on which to present their ideas and concepts dealing with the topic of water.’
