Hansgrohe is the most sought after brand for architects and planners: the bathroom and shower specialist from the Black Forest won Gold at the Architects' Darling Awards 2013 in the Sanitary Fittings category. A panel of judges also bestowed the Bronze award for the Best Social Media Presence on Hansgrohe. This means that Hansgrohe’s communication effort using Internet media is considered to be among the best within the sanitary industry.

The Architects' Darling Awards are hosted annually by Heinze Marktforschung, the leading market research company in the field of construction. They are considered the industry’s Oscars. The award winners in the 24 product categories are determined in a nationwide poll of architects. Around 2000 architectural and interior design planners participated in 2013, voting for their favourites among the 200 participating companies.

Dominik Tanner, Head of Project Business Germany, and Carola Husemann, Key Account Manager at Hansgrohe Deutschland GmbH, accepted the awards at a ceremony in Celle, Germany.

“We’re really thrilled to receive this award. It confirms just how much architects and planners value the high quality and durability of our products, as well as our sound technical advice and custom solutions for construction projects,” Dominik Tanner said as the ceremony came to a close.

Hansgrohe is the only company in the sanitary industry to make it into the top three in the Best Social Media Presence category. This award is given in recognition of the communication and information services of the company and its brands that are aimed at specific target groups and utilize Internet media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The award, selected by a panel of specialist judges, was presented by the communications expert Prof. Dr. Klemens Skibicki. He is the co-founder of a management consultancy for Internet marketing strategies called Brain Injection in Cologne.
