Hansgrohe, an award-winning producer of luxury faucets and showers, seeks to elevate food preparation and bathing from daily routines to enriching experiences.
Founded in Germany in 1901 by bathroom pioneer Hans Grohe who invented the handshower, Hansgrohe aims for timeless design in both form and function for two of the most important spaces in any design project–the kitchen and bath.
It is both fitting and deeply appreciated that Hansgrohe was the exclusive national sponsor of the Design Bloggers Conference Scholarship Program. Because of their sponsorship, four bloggers were able to attend the just-concluded Design Bloggers Conference at the Hyatt Buckhead in Atlanta through a free conference pass.
4 of the 5 winners of the Design Blogger Conference Scholarships were: Kristin Jackson of The Hunted Interior Blog, Kevin O’Gara of Thou Swell Blog Sondra Lyn of Sondra Lyn at Home and Amy Spencer of Amy Spencer Interiors.
At Hadley Court, where founder and HC owner Leslie Hendrix Wood, and contributors Leslie Carothers and Lynda Quintero -Davids, attended, this post is bring written by me, Kim Darden Shaver, the 4th HC contributor, to say “thank you!”, Hansgrohe USA, for sponsoring the scholarship awards this year. We all appreciate your company making the commitment to further the education of designers and design bloggers, as this is something we believe in at Hadley Court as well!
Hansgrohe, which has a U.S. headquarters in Forsyth County, Ga., makes a practice of pursuing and inspiring excellence. Its latest venture in this regard was its first-ever Hansgrohe + Axor Das Design Competition open to architects and designers across the U.S. last year to celebrate excellence in design, sustainability and installation of Hansgrohe and Axor products in real-world projects. Take a look at some of the winners:
The sleek modern master bath design above is in a five-bedroom home and guesthouse in Truckee, Calif. that required well-engineered and stylish products for use by the entire family, from the special needs of the three autistic triplets and adolescent son to the parents in the master suite.
This New York City project, above, reflects the industrial character of its New York neighborhood. The contemporary warehouse, loft-style design features pieces from Hansgrohe’s Talis, Metris and Raindance collections.
The stunning Miami design above impressed the judges with its rich textures, materials and lighting features, and pieces from the Axor Starck, Axor Starck Organic and Hansgrohe Raindance collections.
To the more modern and minimalist Axor Citterio Semi-Pro Kitchen Faucet and Citterio Prep Kitchen Faucet with their chrome finish and elongated lines in this remodel of a 1960s Charles Dubois-designed mid-Century modern home in Palm Springs…
We give thanks to Hansgrohe for all they do to champion designers and enrich the world of home design.
