With Sense and Sense Guard, GROHE wins two 2018 German Design Awards in the category "Building and Elements". The water security system provides a solution to the worrying and costly problem of water damage that faces many homeowners. Repair costs as a result of water damage average £2,040 and it is estimated that 93% of cases could have been prevented. The innovative GROHE water security system helps to reduce the extent of domestic water damage, and can fit into any house thanks to its simple yet elegant design. The smart water sensor GROHE Sense measures room temperature and humidity and alerts homeowners when a problem is identified. Meanwhile, the intelligent "protector" GROHE Sense Guard, detects unexpected leakage of water in the house and automatically turns off the water supply to prevent further damage.
GROHE was also awarded in the "Fair and Exhibition" category for its impressive presence this year at ISH in Frankfurt am Main, the world's leading trade fair for bathroom, construction, energy and air conditioning technologies as well as renewable energy. Under the motto "WATER. INTELLIGENCE. ENJOYMENT”, GROHE presented itself as the industry’s pioneering market leader and made the digital controllability of water accessible as an innovation in its own, spectacular exhibition hall. The panel awarded GROHE the prize in light of its expressive brand image and creative booth design concept.
Finally, GROHE picked up its fourth award in the “Corporate Identity” category for its publication series "GROHE Architekturlösungen", a supplement in German construction magazine, the Deutsche BauZeitschrift. Each edition featured special construction projects and the GROHE products installed within them, alongside a Q&A excerpt around the project’s architecture. The publication is aimed primarily at architects, project planners and experts in the sanitaryware industry. "GROHE Architekturlösungen" is one of GROHE’s key communication tools and represents a respected brand value, which led to its win within this category.
