World first: Coloured Rainshower Icon at architecture event
One of the largest architecture events of the year: the World Architecture Festival (WAF) is taking place 4th to 6th November in Barcelona. GROHE, European market leader for sanitary fittings is the event’s main sponsor and establishes direct contact with architects and planners here. As an absolute world first GROHE will be exhibiting the handheld shower head Rainshower Icon, awarded with design prizes, in six different colours. The exceptional limited edition will be available for the first time exclusively at the World Architecture Festival.
The World Architecture Festival opens its doors for the second time this year. Top achievements of the world’s best architects completed between January 2008 and June 2009 will be shown at the Centre Convencions International Barcelona. The subject of this year’s competition is based on climate change and is “Less Does More”.
Hundreds of architects from 67 countries have submitted their projects. The spectrum of buildings ranges from a treetop restaurant in New Zealand to a space age high school in Los Angeles to Wimbledon Centre Court in London. The high profile international judging panel concentrates on 15 categories which cover office buildings, private houses, hospitals or event halls for culture and sport. The winning entry receives the title World Building of the Year 2009.

GROHE has produced sanitary products for over 70 years. These products are impressive in quality, design and technology and are chosen by architects worldwide for their properties. As a main sponsor of the festival the company will be presenting its current product highlights and product solutions on an area of 100 square meters at the largest sponsor booth. An absolute world premier is the handheld shower head Rainshower Icon awarded with the “red dot: best of the best” offering spray former and EcoButton in six different colours. Individual and colourful the coloured versions can be matched to any bathroom design and the user’s personality.
