    The bathroom is one of the most intimate and private rooms: a place where we bare all, a place we share with no-one. The bathroom is a “me-space”, a place of retreat from the stresses of everyday life. So it is all the more important for the bathroom environment to offer us a sense of security. The new Hansgrohe Logis mixer range brings more harmony and modern balance into the bathroom.In collaboration with long-standing partners Phoenix Design, bathroom specialist Hansgrohe has developed mixers whose distinctive shapes combine precision with smoothness. “With their taut surfaces, clear lines and rounded contours, the new Logis mixers are easy on the eye and to the touch. The open shape of the handle really makes you want to touch it”, said Hansgrohe Product Manager Axel Meißner. “Thanks to their design concept, Logis mixers are the perfect addition to many ceramic ranges.”

    Interplay between mixer and ceramics
    The Logis mixers come in different heights and handle variants, ensuring that ceramics and mixer match both visually and functionally in day-to-day, customised usage. They include the low Logis 70 mixer, ideal perhaps for a small wash basin in the guest cloakroom, the Logis 210 mixer with high spout, which can be swivelled 120 degrees to the side, for example for washing hair, and also the two-handle mixer: all users will be able to find a model that is ideal for their own personal ComfortZone from this comprehensive range. All the wash basin variants were subjected to the Hansgrohe ComfortZone test and combined with a range of ceramics from leading manufacturers: under realistic conditions, the splash back characteristics were scrutinised at different pressures, and while washing hands, and the convenient free space available between mixer and wash basin was also put to the test. The results were incorporated into recommendation tables, which Hansgrohe provides free of charge in PDF format on its website for specialist partners at

    Efficient use of resources
    All the Hansgrohe Logis mixer models for wash basins come equipped with EcoSmart technology as standard. A special aerator limits the flow rate to around five litres per minute. And this comes with absolutely no compromise in terms of comfort, because the water is enriched with air, pampering the skin with the sensation of full-bodied water droplets. The Logis 70 and Logis 100 mixers are also available as CoolStart models. This new technology from the mixer specialists is ideal for anyone looking for energy and hot water savings, not to mention more economical water consumption: in Hansgrohe’s CoolStart mixers, only cold water flows out when the handle is in the central position. This means that the pipe system is no longer filled unnecessarily with hot water or the hot water system specially activated. Moreover, these water and energy-saving features have enabled the Logis mixers to achieve the top rating of WELL Label Class A in the “Home” category for the domestic sector. The European Valve Manufacturers Association “EUnited Valves” uses the “Water Efficiency Label” to offer guidance in terms of water and energy efficiency in mixers and showers.
