Hansgrohe has revived the concept of the showroom with demonstration and interaction the focus of its new London space
Award-winning German bathroom specialist Hansgrohe will launch a brand new concept ‘Water Studio’ in the heart of London’s design district on 1 March. Marking the latest chapter in its remarkable story, The Water Studio specification centre will act as a hub of inspiration, resource and a collaborative space for those serious about creating show-stopping bathrooms.
Situated at 12-16 on the bustling Clerkenwell Road and spread over two floors totalling 262m2, The Water Studio is a true brand experience and brings water to life through the Hansgrohe SE values of innovation, sustainability, quality, design and expertise.
Unlike conventional ‘showrooms’, The Water Studio is all about interaction. In addition to four working water stations and more than 200 products, other features include podiums with ‘Quick Connectors‘ that allow easy exchange of products to showcase function and a ‘Behind the Wall’ area for installation tips. The first of its kind globally from Hansgrohe, the ‘Test Rig’ allows measurement and comparison of different products’ flow rates using sensors.
Making bathroom specification easier is a core value of the Hansgrohe project team so training and support will be an important function of The Water Studio. There will be RIBA Approved CPD seminars on WRAS compliance and Part G, as part of a comprehensive programme of learning events for professional specifiers.
