Three “Best of Best” and four more Iconic Awards 2017 in the category “Product”
The GROHE Blue Home tap water system, the professional Concetto Professional kitchen tap and the Euphoria 260 shower head are each receiving a “Best of Best” Iconic Award 2017 in the “Product” category. At the touch of a button, the tap water system GROHE Blue Home delivers delicious filtered water chilled to the perfect drinking temperature in three options: sparkling, lightly sparkling or still, directly into your glass. The system, which combines timeless design with innovative technology, consists of an elegant kitchen tap and a high-performance cooler with integrated filter. This “private water source” will ensure you remain refreshed in the most sustainable and resource-saving way possible. With its GrohFlexx and EasyDock M technology, the GROHE Concetto Professional kitchen tap is incredibly flexible and easy to use. The tap has a silicone hose with an integrated metal spring, allowing it to turn 360 degrees, and a button for easily switching between normal water flow and jet spray – perfect for washing dishes, rinsing vegetables and filling tall pots effortlessly.
With its 260mm diameter and three zone features, the Euphoria 260 shower head transforms showering into a soothing and custom-made experience. The users can change the flow of water to suit their mood, changing gradually from a powerful concentrated jet to a stimulating and invigorating stream to a full soft rain shower with a simple turn of the SmartControl panel.
In the category “Product”, GROHE is also receiving Iconic Awards this year for the tap collections Lineare and Essence Professional as well as for the concealed control element SmartControl Concealed and GROHE Sense and GROHE Sense Guard, the new water security system. With its clear lines, the Lineare series of faucets creates contours in your bathroom, while the Essence Professional tap line makes your work in the kitchen more efficient and more comfortable. The flush and minimalist designed control panel SmartControl Concealed can be controlled by an intuitive push button and turn knob technology. The innovative and smart water safety system consisting of Sense and SenseGuard detects and protects homes against water damage.
