Das Design Competition: Get the VIP treatment from Hansgrohe

By Marine


Das Design Competition

I am a country famous for its beer, apple wine, traditional sausages and cuckoo clocks. I am also the home of Hansgrohe and Axor – the premium brands for bathroom and kitchen faucets. Who am I? Drumroll… Germany! (Cue applause.)

Hansgrohe is giving American-based architects and interior designers the opportunity to fly to its home base, by launching its first-ever Das Design Competition. Want to be one of the lucky few to embark on the VIP trip? Enter the competition at Dasdesigncomp.com and dazzle the jury with the innovative and inspiring ways that you have incorporated Hansgrohe and/or Axor products in your recent projects. The keyword in DasDesignComp? Excellence: the jury is looking for excellence in design, sustainability and installation.

Note that your projects must have been built in the U.S. within the past three years (between January 1, 2011 and September 1, 2014) and fit into one of these categories: Residential, Hospitality, Commercial, or Multi-Housing/High-Rise.

The Winners of each category will receive a round trip to Germany plus three-night hotel accommodation to be part of a VIP delegation attending ISH, the world’s largest trade show for the combination of water and energy in building solutions, in Frankfurt in March 2015.

Be prepared to travel off the beaten path and sample German cuisine and culture in the company of other designers, media and the Hansgrohe team; get inspired by the region’s architecture; try Ebbelwoi (apple wine), and taste of one of the 1,500 German beers or sip wine from the Rhineland. Are you feeling the German spirit already? Because we are!
