Winner in the”Building and Elements“ category: GROHE Sense and Sense Guard
With Sense and Sense Guard, GROHE wins two 2018 German Design Awards in the category "Building and Elements". The water safety system meets an urgent need of private households: More than half of all homes have already suffered at least one incident of water damage with repair costs averaging 2,297 euros, which could have been prevented in 93 % of all cases. The innovative GROHE water safety system warns about and reduces not only the extent of domestic water damage, but also fits into any house thanks to its simple yet elegant design. Above all, the combination of innovative technical functionality and aesthetic design convinced the jury of the German Design Awards. The smart water sensor GROHE Sense measures room temperature and humidity and alerts homeowners in case of critical deviations. The intelligent "protector" GROHE Sense Guard detects unexpected leakage of water in the house and automatically turns off the water supply.
Winner in the ”Fair and Exhibition“ category: GROHE exhibition booth at the 2017 ISH
In the "Fair and Exhibition" category, GROHE is awarded a German Design Award for its impressive presence at the 2017 ISH in Frankfurt am Main, the world's leading trade fair for bathroom, construction, energy and air conditioning technologies as well as renewable energy. Under the motto "WATER. INTELLIGENCE. ENJOYMENT”, GROHE presented itself as the industry’s pioneering market leader and made the digital controllability of water accessible as an innovation in its own, spectacular exhibition hall. GROHE wins over the jury and receives a 2018 German Design Award with its expressive brand image and creative overall booth design concept.
Award winner in the "Corporate Identity" category: GROHE architectural solutions
For the publication series "GROHE Architekturlösungen", a supplement of the Deutsche BauZeitschrift (DBZ), a German construction publication, GROHE is awarded with another 2018 German Design Award. In each edition, special construction projects and the GROHE products installed within them are presented and questions about the architecture are answered. The publication is aimed primarily at architects, specialist planners, sanitary experts and topic-specific target groups. Since "GROHE Architekturlösungen" is one of the company's key communication tools and represents a respected brand value, GROHE wins in the category "Corporate Identity".
