Awarded | Architecture and design competitions

The Bauhaus idea recently celebrated its 100th anniversary and still has its significance today. HEWI's design language is very much in the tradition of the Bauhaus design maxim and still guides us in the design of our products today. This is one reason why we receive awards from architects, planners and users for our design and the functionality of our solutions. We present our award-winning solutions to you.

The aesthetics of reduction

Contemporary and timeless design, a language of form reduced to the essentials and a conscious use of color not only closely link our root, the System 111 lever handle, to Bauhaus, but also guide us in the development of new solutions in the areas of sanitary fittings, accessibility and hardware.

Architects’ Darling

The Architects' Darling is an award for manufacturers and suppliers from the fields of construction, furnishings and equipment, which is determined in one of the largest industry surveys in various architecture trade magazines.

In a large-scale, multimedia survey conducted by Heinze Marktforschung, around 2,000 architects and planners evaluate various products and solutions in the construction industry. In the process, manufacturers in the construction industry are put "through their paces": Who offers architects and planners the best deal?

Winners are selected in 25 product areas and 12 overarching marketing disciplines.

HEWI was honored in the categories of accessibility and fittings.

After all, innovations that shape the future and improve life exist in all industries.

The jury is made up of independent, interdisciplinary experts from industry, science, institutions and finance. Entries are judged according to the criteria of innovation level, user benefit and cost-effectiveness.
