HEWI | Design Comfort Care

 

The legendary design school of modernism continues to have a powerful effect even today. This can be seen in HEWI’s design language which is entirely in the tradition of the Bauhaus design maxim. This formal language of contemporary and timeless design, reduced to the essentials and its conscious use of colour, closely link HEWI with the Bauhaus movement. The constant search for new design paths is entirely characteristic of HEWI’s design philosophy. The result is surprisingly innovative solutions that go far beyond conventional approaches.

Since its foundation in 1929, HEWI has evolved to become a system provider for comprehensive solutions in the areas of building hardware, sanitary accessories and accessible products. This evolution has been entirely organic as society has and continues to change, and with it the demands on architecture and product design.

By adhering to the fundamental principles of universal design and a sustainable, holistic design philosophy, HEWI has focused on the individual needs of people for more than 90 years. Countless awards underline the company's pioneering role, including the Universal Design award “Best of Decade”, which HEWI received for outstanding achievements in the field of universal design, Architects’ Darling, the German Design Awards and last but not least the Iconic Awards. These awards are not merely an appreciation of HEWI's commitment to the past, they also serve as an incentive to continue to move forward and develop even more innovative solutions.

We take great pride in our decades of experience, constant innovation, our in-depth understanding of shape, colour and materials, as well as impeccable product development, that has always kept people's requirements in mind. It is this that has made HEWI not only the market leader in accessibility, but the acknowledged expert in system design.
