The Hansgrohe Group with its brands AXOR and hansgrohe ranked among the ten best companies in the world in the field of design. In the current ‘company’ design rankings published by the renowned International Forum Design (iF), considered one of the world’s most important quality ratings for product design, the Hansgrohe Group, ranked sixth among some 2,000 listed companies. With 1,040 points, Hansgrohe improved on its 2016 position, moving up four places to become the top-listed German company. By securing a top position in this list of ‘good design’, the taps and showers specialist also further expands its lead over competitors in the sanitation industry.
The iF ‘company’ ranking combines the overall results of the iF awards received by a company over the past three years. Eight AXOR and hansgrohe products were awarded, which was decisive for the company’s move to sixth place. Moreover, the international jury of 58 experts distinguished the AXOR Uno taps with a Gold Award.
“These nine iF DESIGN awards, including the Gold Award, clearly confirm our ongoing commitment to combining the aesthetic design of a product with quality, ease of use and high customer benefit,” says Jan Heisterhagen, Vice President Product Management, Hansgrohe SE.
