Universal Design
as a task for the future

Two stacked brochures labelled Design Comfort Care

The philosophy of Universal Design incorporates the needs of all people. HEWI has been living this ideal for more than 35 years as a sustainable and holistic design philosophy. With Series 801, HEWI launched the first barrier-free series on the German market and has since stood for quality made in Germany. In this way, HEWI achieved market leadership in the accessible sanitary fittings segment.

With this experience, HEWI published "Design Comfort Care", which covers numerous aspects of accessibility in architecture. In it, architects discover statements by experts on universal design as well as trend-setting barrier-free sanitary solutions in architecture.

HEWI's intention for the "Design Comfort Care" is that barrier-free products are seen as natural comfort elements. The publication is intended to help ensure that universal design is understood and practiced as a future task for an entire society.

The individual object types in architecture are characterized by highly diverse requirements for building equipment. Therefore, individual solutions for barrier-free sanitary worlds in different object types will be presented in the "Design Comfort Care": from hospitals and nursing homes to public facilities, kindergartens and schools to gastronomy and hotels as well as the own home.

"Our goal is to develop products that are easy and intuitive to use, that contribute to the independent mastering of everyday life with little physical effort. Thus HEWI offers the users an aesthetic sanitary world adapted to their needs: Design Comfort Care" explains Thorsten Stute, managing director of HEWI, the philosophy of the enterprise.
