Last week, sanitaryware brands AXOR and hansgrohe hosted a sustainability-focused event, attended by architects, interior designers and developers from the GCC region.
Taking place at the hansgrohe/AXOR showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road, the event served as a platform for the brands to present their sustainability agenda and showcase demand for water and energy-saving products in the residential, hospitality and leisure markets.
The event saw AXOR present its products for water-related spaces, with hansgrohe’s EluPura toilet range also exhibited.
The range, it shared, features interior geometry, enabling flushing that consumes just 4.5 litres of water per flush, while the Xuniva wash basin collections are constructed entirely from natural and recyclable materials.
Also under the spotlight was the AXOR Suite collection, a collaboration with designer Philippe Starck.
In addition to the new ceramics collections, AXOR presented AXOR ShowerComposition by Philippe Strack, AXOR ONE Shower Set and AXOR Citterio Rhombic and E collections by Antonio Citterio.
Representing the Hansgrohe Group at the event were Andrus Asavi, Director of Sales, Global Projects and Fawzy Tello, Regional Sales Manager, Middle East, along with the Dubai team.
Andrus Asavi said: “We welcomed our long-established network of architects, designers and developers, and we were delighted to meet newcomers too. Listening to different opinions and insights from professionals who work in the design and delivery of major projects about how we can work together to conserve the precious resource of water is really important.”
Adding: “Through events like these we can gauge feedback on our collections and we can explain our vision for the future. The crucial issue of sustainability is progressive and evolving, and working with our partners and stakeholders we remain committed to being a consistent innovator.”
