Hansgrohe brings bathroom innovation to Cambodia

The role of the bathroom has changed in the last decade. While the real estate market in Cambodia is still emerging, more high-end projects are being built in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Units in these upscale developments are purchased by foreign buyers as well as affluent locals who expect the bathroom space to be more advance than it has been in the past. This is something that has not been lost on Hansgrohe, one of the world’s leading bathroom fixture manufacturers that is known for producing fixtures and products that are innovative and well designed.

“People in Asia view the bathroom much differently now than they did ten years ago. It used to be seen strictly as a place where you got in and got out,” KC Lee, Managing Director at Hansgrohe Singapore, explains. “However, the bathroom has evolved and is now seen as a lifestyle space. It’s become a place for relaxation and rejuvenation and is arguably one of the most important rooms in a house.”

Hansgrohe, along with its high-end AXOR brand, have a wide-range of products that are not only functional, but can inspire bathroom design. AXOR works with world famous designers, such as Philippe Starck and Patricia Urquiola, who have helped bring about this bathroom revolution.

Nowhere is this progress more evident than with the AXOR Starck V mixer that combines organic and sculptural design with easy to use features. According to the company, this glass fixture illustrates the vitality of water in the form of a vortex. Whether or not that’s true is for you to determine, but there is no denying it is impressive to look at every time you turn it on. Of course, consumers want more than stylish bathroom fixtures and this is a demand that the Hansgrohe company is well aware of.


“People want bathroom technology to be intuitive. They also want it to be integrated,” Lee details. “At Hansgrohe, we strive to deliver these to the public. From the iBOX Universal, the first Raindance shower to our latest ‘Select Technology’ increasingly incorporated into a wide range of bathroom and kitchen mixers, consumers can be confident they are getting products that offer the best when it comes to design, innovation and quality.”

Hansgrohe trusted by builders in buyers

The company’s reach throughout Southeast Asia is simply another sign of its popularity in the region. There are many reasons both developers and homeowners have come to trust the brand.

“We take pride in always being there for our clients, regardless of who they are or how big they are. Good service is something we believe in. From pre-sales consultations to after-sales service, we will assist clients in any way possible,” Lee concludes.

Hangrohe and Axor products can be found at Heng Asia in Phnom Penh. Heng Asia is a one-stop shopping centre for architectural and interior products and is the exclusive distributor of Hansgrohe products in Cambodia. Econflo Cambodia also carries the Hangrohe and Axor brands in the country.
