Philippe Starck's relationship with Hansgrohe developed in the mid 90s. Their first collaboration, the Axor Stark collection, launched in 94. Philippe not only redefined the aesthetics of bathroom taps and mixers, he changed our entire perception of the bathroom as a whole. At the centre of Philippe's pioneering designs were natural light, warm materials and a "back to our origins" room composition. (Photo by Jimmy Baikovicius)
Jean-Marie Massaud takes great inspiration from nature when designing, which releases his creativity from convention. Upon taking on his first bathroom design project, Jean-Marie explained "People need water, not mixers". Jean-Marie beautifully represents nature in the Axor Massaud collection; the mixer body represents a blade of grass and the gush jet is a waterfall. No matter the object, Jean-Marie's designs are poetic and highly functional. (Photo by Corentin Harbelot)
Hansgrohe have been pioneers since 1901. Their ingenuity and passion for industry leading ideas has gained them many awards in the last 111 years, and it's not hard to understand why. Hansgrohe products, be it showers, baths or kitchen taps, are of excellent quality and aesthetically designed – by some of the biggest names in the design world. All Hansgrohe products come from their factories in the Black Forest, Germany.
Don't let us make you think Hansgrohe are only about design awards though. Hansgrohe are pioneers of sustainability, environment and climate protection. They were a 'Green' company long before being green was topical. They did this because of a sense of responsibility to you and the planet. Hansgrohe products benefit from sophisticated water saving, recycling and energy saving technologies.
We have been working with Hansgrohe for over 30 years, and are very proud of our product and application knowledge. We're more than just a shop too; showers-taps.co.uk is made up of a team of award winning bathroom and kitchen designers. We are a Hansgrohe VIP Retailer, and you can visit our showroom on Devon's south coast.
It is our knowledge and experience that makes us stand out – simply put; we're happy and qualified to help.
