Design is more than simply beautiful appearance
Good design is emotive design. Design professionals all agree on this. But what use is design theory? The inspirational effect of loving something can only be sensed ...
When it comes to design, most people think of external appearance. But it is much more than this: a combination of appearance, function, material, operation and experience. The design of the AXOR and hansgrohe bathroom products is the result of years of research work. Which is why the showers and mixers also “work” well on the global market. It is also the reason they are loved all over the world.
Consumer test turns hand shower into the “Next Top Model”
Hansgrohe arranged for 500 product testers to spend four weeks testing out the product in their showers. To sum up: practically all of them thought the Raindance Select E 120 three-jet hand showers were beautiful. 97 percent of shower testers loved the exceptional design. The rounded corners – Soft Cube – also really appealed to 97 percent of them. 96 percent liked the shower's elegant surface finish: in chrome or in the fresh colour combination of white and chrome. The testers stated that the main reason that they got rid of their old shower head, and that they prefer to use the “round-cornered” version in future was the product design.
