This is an event that gives bathroom design ideas to a global audience – the hansgrohe Aqua Days. Keeping it’s word on innovations in bathrooms, the German brand has introduced a slew of new products and innovations at Aqua Days 2021. These ranged over the much talked-about hansgrohe Pulsify showers to the innovative bathroom storage solutions and more. Buildingandinteriors.com looks at some of these innovations at hansgrohe Aqua Days 2021.
Re-defining bathroom design ideas – The Pulsify Showers with PowderRain
The Pulsify shower makes it possible to design bathrooms of small sizes that still can use the innovative PowderRain technology from hansgrohe. The solution scores high on both form and functionality. It is equipped with two PowderRain spray modes. The result – an unmatched shower experience which is almost silent in it’s action.
Pulsify shower system comprises the following:
- Overhead shower based on PowderRain technology. This is controlled via thermostat and has 2 modes: Soft PowderRain for a relaxed shower experience, and an Intense PowderRain for the shampoo
- Hand shower in 3 modes: PowderRain, RainSpray and Massage Spray.
- A new, intuitive and ergonomic shower control. The new control knob intelligently combines temperature and volume control in a single unit. Spray changeover is facilitated at the touch of a button.
On the form part, the minimalistic-looking shower holding pipe is unconventionally flat. This flat pipe lends an aesthetic and ‘floating’ look to the system. On the practical side, the shape offers plenty of elbow room when showering.
The overhead shower is adjustable from 10-30°. This offers flexibility, allowing the microfine PowderRain rain shower to perfectly adapt to the user.
With the Multifunction ShowerTablet Select 400, there’s ample storage space for toiletries. In addition to offering storage area, this 40 cm long surface on the thermostat integrates a hand shower holder and stays cool and safe thanks to it’s CoolContact surface.
Hansgrohe Pulsify is offered in 3 color options:
- Matte black,
- Matte white,
It lends individuality to each bathroom design.
Sustainability factor in Pulsify
Pulsify integrates proven hansgrohe technologies such as EcoRight and QuickClean. EcoRight allows for a very optimal water consumption of 6L/min. which means 60% less water consumption over conventional showers. QuickClean removes lime-scale by a gentle rub of fingers on the showers’ surface area. This makes the shower clog-free and increases the life of the shower.
The new products are easy to install. The 1jet overhead shower or shower pipe can be mounted on existing connections and the 2jet version via the iBox Universal.
Space savings, water saving and long life are the mainstays of Pulsify. As a result, Architects, Designers and Consultants will find the hansgrohe Pulsify shower range both innovative and practical for their projects, including hotels and spas.
