The wedi Sanwell shower wall module won not one but two prizes. The bathroom and wet room specialist won the competition "Bathroom comfort for generations" with its new product innovation and was presented with the ZVSHK product award at this year's ISH. Another internationally renowned award - the iF DESIGN AWARD 2023 is also going to the Emsdetten based manufacturer. This prize is awarded once a year by the world's oldest independent design institution .
The Sanwell shower wall module was introduced to the market at the end of last year. It is suitable for installation on the existing substrate as a fixed wall or as a free-standing shower partition. The special features are the pre-installed cold and hot water pipes as well as the Hansgrohe iBox allowing for more than 200thermostatic mixer designs. "The two awards further confirm our strategy to develop functional and easy-to-install design elements," says Volkmar Harnischmacher from wedi.
ZVSHK jury praises quality, workability and individuality The aspect of high functionality is also commended in the reasoning of the jury of six experts. "The wedi Sanwell shower wall module can be installed quickly and easily in a wide range of room concepts as a back-wall installation or as a free-standing partition wall," says
Harnischmacher. High practical quality, easy installation and cost-effective options for individual configuration: these aspects particularly convinced the jury. "Time and costs are two of the most important topics for both the younger and the older generations of installers when renovating bathrooms."
