Tom Schönherr and Andreas Haug define their design philosophy as an attitude. Their basic values are ethics and aesthetics, economy and ecology, accuracy and ergonomics, plus the interests of manufacturers and users. The products created by Phoenix design are not solo stars. They do not bear any identifiable designer signature, but rather obtain their unique form through the craftsman’s skill and vision, influenced by people, the environment and the markets.
The designer has always fulfilled his philosophy if a product is convincing due to its logic, if in its ethics it stands above the fleeting spirit of the age and if it captivates with its magic. When Tom Schönherr und Andreas Haug formed the company in 1987 not only did they lay the foundation for their own internationally successful firm with branches in Stuttgart and Tokyo, but also for countless products that have become bestsellers – some of them on a global scale. On the exclusive customer list of Phoenix Design are innovative brand manufacturers such as Loewe, Kaldewei, Hansgrohe, Gira, Lamy, LG, LAUFEN and Viessmann. Phoenix Design has developed several designer baths for LAUFEN: the timeless, flexible “living by LAUFEN”, the tribute to the Bauhaus style “form by LAUFEN”, “Gallery”, which, due its variety of designs, finds favour with many, plus the stylish “living city by LAUFEN” series of washbasins.
