Refreshingly Responsible Hotel Bathrooms

At Olympia West Hall in London, on 20-21st October, Hansgrohe will exhibit for the second time at the Independent Hotel Show. In answer to the needs of smaller boutique hotels, Hansgrohe will demonstrate how sustainable bathrooms can provide an attractive and refreshing experience for guests while also saving money. Working models of Hansgrohe EcoSmart showers and mixer taps will be on Stand 187 for visitors to see how water and energy can be saved, without any compromise on design or enjoyment.

Croma Select – The Croma collection now features Select technology making it easy to switch between spray modes at the intuitive touch of a button. At an outstanding price point, this makes ‘Select’ showering accessible to every hotel guest with choice of hand showers, overheads and showerpipes.

The global bathroom specialist, based in the German Black Forest, is also renowned for shaping bathroom trends and this will be evident from the latest designs. These incorporate new materials such as white glass, effortless intuitive operation with ‘Select’ push button showers and thermostatic controls, and a new Axor collaboration with star British design duo Barber + Osgerby.
Hansgrohe will also host a seminar on the Innovations Stage on 20th October at 12.45pm with an expert panel to discuss ‘Designing Hotel Environments for the Modern Traveller.”
