The Metropol and Raindance E – newly launched in SA

Hansgrohe, known worldwide for its quality, innovative products, has just launched the slick new Metropol and the beautiful Raindance E to the South African market.
Already having taken pride of place in some of the most exclusive hotels and boutique hideaways in Europe, the Hansgrohe Metropol is set to make its mark in South African hotels and high-end homes.
The striking product not only makes your bathroom look and feel stylish and contemporary but is also easy to operate while offering so many attractive features including:

• A cubic base set underlining its high quality
• Harmony through the parallel design of handle and spout
• An unmistakeable geometric silhouette with open curve
• An elegant look, thanks to expansive surfaces
• Precise lines creating fine reflections
• A rectangular wall flange for continuity of design

The Metropol range offers freedom of design thanks to three different handle designs: 1) solid lever handle which elegantly continues the planar design, 2) Delicate bow-shaped handle which conveys lightness and simplifies operation and 3) the Select button – simultaneously minimalist and intuitive. The Metropol Select is simple to use as it turns the water on and off intuitively at the touch of a button– even with your elbow or palm which makes minimal water consumption a cinch as the water can be quickly and easily turned on and off between tasks. Furthermore, temperature can remain pre-set – making it so much easier to use every day – at your perfect temperature.

The Metropol is available at selected bathroom outlets nationwide – offering beauty, saving and function that cannot be beaten.
The Raindance E overhead concealed shower – which recently won the IF Design award internationally - has once again proven and validated the design philosophy of Hansgrohe – combining design with functionality. This 300mm square shower head optimises XXL shower performance. The silicon nubs are specifically positioned to create an all-round feel-good shower experience- in the middle the nubs are tightly packed nozzles create an intense jet for washing out shampoo, while on the outside the more widely spaced nubs with their gentle RainAir spray jet ensure a relaxing shower experience. Also available as an EcoSmart version with only 9 l/min flow rate at 3 bar, Hansgrohe are able to ensure that the products look remarkable and work with precision– thus making the company a trendsetter in the sector.

“As water shortage becomes of grave concern to our world, so we, at Hansgrohe have created an award-winning design and combined it with a water saving device that will wash your hair and clean your body in half the time of a conventional shower head, but in a way that is comfortable and beautiful – while saving water” says Jan Heisterhagen, Vice President of Product Management at Hansgrohe.
“Innovations such as our initiative – the Raindance E overhead shower - make showering and controlling the flow of water a positive environmental experience, as well as a positive showering experience – and the quality and design just complete the entire feel.” Often when manufacturers attempt to make a shower head that saves water, it just makes the user feel cheated – it takes longer to wash, and it certainly doesn’t look as good. With the Raindance E overhead shower, not only do you feel refreshed, you look refreshed and your bathroom looks stylish – the envy of your neighbours!”
