What we expect first and foremost from technology is that it will not make our lives more complicated, but easier and more comfortable instead. Simplicity is the saving grace that gets us through our ever more complex everyday lives. This is also the premise on which the mixer and shower specialist Hansgrohe based the development of a new operating philosophy. With the push-button method of switching between different types of jets, Hansgrohe has implemented the same principle we have already become accustomed to when we use mouse clicks and operate light switches. The new Raindance Select E 300 showerpipe combines overhead shower, hand shower and thermostat in a single system suitable for simple surface-mounted installation. The system offers no fewer than five different shower modes: the hand shower pampers the body with three, the overhead shower with two different types of jets. Switching between the types of jets is done simply by pressing the large Select push-button on the hand shower or the overhead shower. Another sophisticated feature is the well designed Ecostat Select thermostat: more than just a beautifully shaped object, it also serves as a practical shelf for shower utensils.
