About the project.
Founded in 1932, Damixa is today known throughout much of the world for its faucets and fixtures for kitchens and baths: fixtures that combine stylish Scandinavian design with great functionality.
Through a user-centred innovation process, design concern has created a faucet handle that can be used throughout life, regardless of age or any impairment. For children, teenagers, adults and the elderly.
The user-friendly handle, Damixa Clover Easy, is based on the “design for all” principles, where the design includes users across needs and where the design language appeals broadly.
Damixa Clover Easy has an iconic form. A handle that can be opened and closed with one easy press of either the hand, arm or elbow. It is usable by all no matter if it is small children’s hands or older people with arthritis.
Additionally, design concern developed a brochure and campaign website for the company as part of the project.
Damixa Clover Easy has received a Red Dot Award and was nominated for both the Design for All Award and the German Design Award.
