GROHE (, the world’s leading provider of sanitary fittings and a global brand dedicated to providing innovative water products, receives five of the most sought-after design awards for its Blue Home water system, shower toilet Sensia Arena, bathroom faucet Lineare and kitchen faucet lines Concetto Professional and Essence Professional.

The Red Dot Award is known as one of the most coveted awards honoring exceptional design performance. GROHE’s recognition bring the total number of Red Dot Awards 2017 for LIXIL Corporation, a global sanitary ware market leader which includes premium brands such as GROHE, to six.

The international design competition Red Dot is held by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany and appraises the best products of the year: Designers and manufacturers from all over the globe submit their products and a jury of 40 specialised experts evaluates those products by their degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics, durability and ecological compatibility.

GROHE presented its exceptional variety of products with intelligent solutions in modern designs for bathroom and kitchen. As the worldwide leading provider of sanitary fittings, GROHE successfully proved its leading market position by receiving five sought-after Red Dot Awards for GROHE’s water system Blue Home, GROHE’s shower toilet Sensia Arena, GROHE’s bathroom faucet Lineare and GROHE’s kitchen faucet lines Concetto Professional and Essence Professional.

As a private water source for ultimate taste and enjoyment, GROHE’s innovative and ecologically friendly Blue Home water system supplies filtered and chilled water with three selectable carbonation levels straight out of a kitchen faucet. Superseding the need for industrialized mineral water, it cuts drinking water costs by at least 50 percent and reduces carbon emissions by 61 percent compared to bottled water. Offering ultimate hygiene and comfort, GROHE’s Sensia Arena shower toilet sets new standards in the field of intelligent care.

GROHE’s Lineare bathroom faucet of remarkably balanced proportions combines the most delicate faucet body GROHE ever manufactured with a flat spout and a visually restrained lever with a clean and contemporary look. Distinguished by their particularly slim and streamlined body, GROHE’s new kitchen faucet collections Concetto Professional and Essence Professional combine elegant and sensual design with high-performance, making kitchen work more efficient and comfortable. With its expanded Essence faucet range coming in deluxe colours and state-of-the-art finishes, GROHE serves the global trend of individuality by extending it to bathroom and kitchen.
