HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE 2015

HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE 2015

This multifunctional washbasin unites a sink, a faucet and a hand dryer in one product. When you wash your hands in public toilets, your clothes may get wet because the water pressure is too high or because the area around the sink is already wet. The curved washbasin solves this problem with its wave-like, curved form that provides a protective front cover. If you hold your hands below the curve, the water begins to flow. When the water stops, the hand dryer starts. The idea behind this product was to create a new, splash-proof design that creates a unique user experience.

The very unconventional and dynamic language of form paired with a new way of combining functions results in a concept for a new and unique product. Symbolizing both a wave and a vortex, a new archetype has been created that offers a very special product experience and protects the user from spraying water. A very compelling design that is at once beautiful and functional.
Jury Statement
I felt so excited when I heard the news. This was really an unforgettable moment. For me personally it is a big honor to receive this prize, and I am very grateful for it. I am very happy that this competition helps me to share my design ideas with talented designers and companies, which have different design cultures. Now for me it is just a beginning.
