The Innovation awards at kbbLDN recognise the latest outstanding inventive products and Raindance Select from Hansgrohe has been short-listed along with 19 other contenders.With Raindance Select, for the first time the engineers at Hansgrohe invented a shower range that offers two types of spray in a single head: both the gentle aerated RainAir and a forceful, effective Rain shower spray. The other key innovation is push-button ‘Select’ operation. Easy for all ages and even with soapy hands, this concept moves away from twisting knobs to simple push-buttons to change spray modes and also extends to the various controls as part of the ‘Select’ range. From a simple push to start/stop, through to choosing between shower heads and also activating the innovative RainStream spray with its uniform ribbons of cascading water. When it comes to controlling water in the bathroom in particular, Hansgrohe believes that a reliable mechanical control is preferable to complex, error-prone electronics.
The winner will be announced on Monday 20th May at the show.
Hansgrohe is also participating this year in the seminar programme at the May Design Series.
