Hansgrohe RainTunes: The shower experience for all senses
Water is our
constant companion. We come into contact with it several times a day. Because
of this it was important to Hansgrohe to make this contact a special
experience. “We conceptualize water in the bathroom in completely new
dimensions with a focus on the individual and their multisensory experience. We
would like to transform the bathroom into a tailored, highly personal oasis of
well-being,” explains Marc André Palm, Head of Global Brand Marketing at Hansgrohe.
Innovation meets Emotion
RainTunes digital shower system links water, light, sound, and fragrance to
create a holistic water experience for all the senses. The focus here is
totally on the individual and their personal moods and needs. In close
collaboration with experts from a whole range of professions, hansgrohe has
created digitally controlled shower scenarios that are geared towards the
user’s individual everyday life.
will initially offer seven multisensory shower scenarios, which adapt to the
user’s personal daily mood, offering just the right shower experience. It was
developed with the support of many experts, including dermatologists, sports
physicians, physical therapists, and aromatherapy specialists. The scenarios
currently available are “Good Morning,” “Revitalization,” “Vitality,”
“Relaxation,” “Beauty,” “Nature,” and “Good Night.”
specially developed app connects with the Hansgrohe shower products via the
home Wi-Fi network. Lighting and sound can also be controlled via
Wi-Fi-connected systems already used in the smart home. Hansgrohe provides the
appropriate fragrance for the shower scenario with its new range of RainScent
fragrance tabs. The shower scenario selected is transmitted to the shower with
a tap on the app and then activated there via the play button.
Smart shower technology
controlled using a buttons or a pad. The control buttons can be positioned
anywhere and allow you to adjust spray modes, water flow, and temperature.
Bluetooth technology has enabled a whole new method of controlling the shower:
separating the permanently installed faucet and its controls. That is because
the control buttons are connected via Bluetooth with a central unit behind the
wall and therefore separated from the faucet.
The digital pad
control panel operates the shower via a permanently installed, central control
panel. Like the control buttons, it receives the various shower scenarios via
the app and activates them when the Play symbol is pressed on the touch screen.
You also have the option, of course, to customize the daily shower ritual using
the pad. Temperature, water flow, musical accompaniment, and spray mode can be
changed at any time.
