The Hansgrohe Group once again ranks among the ten best companies in the world in the field of design as ranked by the renowned International Forum Design (iF).
With 1,040 points, Hansgrohe improved on its 2016 position, moving up four places and ranking sixth among some 2000 listed companies. This tap and showers specialist surpassed Audi to become the top-listed German company and placed ahead of world-famous brands such as Apple, BMW and Siemens.
By securing a top position in this list of “excellent design”, Hansgrohe 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. The awards are considered to be one of the world’s most important quality ratings for product design. This is quite an achievement for the Hansgrohe Group whose mission is to be an aspirational brand and give consumers value for their money.
The Hansgrohe Group regularly places among the winners at iF. In 2017 eight AXOR and Hansgrohe products were awarded, which was decisive for the company’s move to sixth place. Moreover, an international jury of 58 experts distinguished the AXOR Uno taps with a Gold Award. This year, a total of 5,575 products from 59 countries were submitted for consideration.
With over 500 different design awards under its belt to date, it is clear that Hansgrohe is a design force to be reckoned with. We look forward to even greater design inspiration from the Group in the near future.
