Hydra wins IF Design Award 2024

Portugal, 2024

Larus has won the IF Design 2024, a global design award, with the "Hydra" drinking fountains.

The international jury, comprising 132 design experts, recognized the value of this equipment, which stands out for being inclusive, as one of the five versions was designed for people with limited mobility, and also sustainable, as it encourages the consumption of tap water, the use and reuse of non-disposable containers, and the reuse of water for animals. 
The "Hydra" drinking fountains, designed by the Diwiz studio, are made of steel, cast iron, and aluminum and are available in five versions (S, L, Wash, and Refill, Portable Refill).

Previously, "Hydra" were distinguished in the last edition of the BID (International Design Biennial), which brought together the best Ibero-American design in Madrid.

Research in design is a strategic commitment of Larus, whose mission is to humanize the territory. Daily, its Research and Development team designs technical solutions that anticipate urban needs.

Larus is present in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, furnishing cities such as Porto (Serralves and Avenida dos Aliados), Madrid (Prado Museum park), Luanda (Luanda Bay and Ilha do Cabo), Casablanca (Old Medina), Santiago de Compostela (City of Culture), Versailles, Innsbruck, or Brussels.

The brand is recognized for the originality and diversity of its solutions, which result from close collaboration with the greatest names in national architecture and design, such as Siza Vieira, Souto Moura, Daciano da Costa, Alcino Soutinho, João Nunes, Carrilho da Graça, Henrique Cayatte, or Francisco Providência, among others.
