With the intelligent Smart Toilet LavaPura from hansgrohe, Phoenix was inspired by freestanding bathtubs. The reduced design language is inviting with architectural clarity. The Pontos water management system consists of two products that were developed in close cooperation between hansgrohe and Phoenix. Pontos Base and Pontos Scout are connected to the hansgrohe Home App on the smartphone and warn the user of water leaks, for example. The new and high-quality Finish-Plus design offers a wide range of style options.

RainPad combines the functions of the shower in a central control panel and allows clear and simple control
