HANSAMURANO X - water perfectly staged

New premium mixer by HANSA combines technology and design on the highest level – Innovative motion sensor

 

“Experience water” - HANSAMURANO X, the new washbasin mixer, stages the element in complete accordance with the HANSA motto for an unmistakable effect. With its new, architecturally cubic design language, it is an eye-catcher in exclusive modern bathroom worlds. The name already hints at it: HANSAMURANO follows in the tradition of the successful HANSAMURANO, which was launched on the market ten years ago. The innovation takes up elements of the design icon, but gives them its very own interpretation on the very highest technical level. A design study of the HANSAMURANO X will be presented at the ISH.

Unmistakable: the wide, filigree veil of water
As with its predecessor, HANSAMURANO, HANSAMURANO X focuses on the design of the waterflow. Water pours into the basin in a broad yet wafer-thin laminar spray, while the fine water curtain is created by a special jet former. Despite the clever water channelling, the consumption of this architecturally minimalistic mixer is pleasingly low at just eight litres per minute.

Elegant: the combination of glass and chrome 
The latest addition to the HANSA|EDITION segment also follows its predecessor in the harmonious interplay between the materials. The combination of chrome and glass is what lends the mixer its characteristic look. The man behind the HANSAMURANO X is the renowned designer Bruno Sacco (chief designer at Daimler-Benz 1975-1999), who also designed the HANSAMURANO in co-operation with Reinhard Zetsche of Octopus Design.

High-tech: contact-free control and new motion sensor 
No contact is required when switching the HANSAMURANO X on and off – it is all done by an infrared sensor in the mixer base. And there are two sensor buttons in the control element with which the user sets the temperature. The HANSAMURANO X also has a new kind of lighting or motion function. If someone approaches, it activates the lighting and presents the washbasin in a pretty light.

Ten years of HANSAMURANO – a success story 
In 2003, the mixer manufacturer HANSA presented an entirely new kind of design language with this designer mixer, and thus also laid the foundation stone for his premium segment. HANSAMURANO has received numerous design awards over the past ten years, including the “reddot design award 2003”, the “Design plus 2003” and the “iF product design award 2004”. The mixer is based on the traditional fountain of bygone ages. Water flows freely, like a soft veil, over a rounded basin made of clear, matt or azure blue glass. The HANSAMURANO mixers in the Cenedese special edition are exclusive one-offs: Every single glass basin is a genuine work of art, mouth blown in Murano.
