K/BIS 2004: Artful Options Part II
GROHE featured its Movario hand shower system with the new RotaHead-System that converts it from a showerhead to body spray with the twist of a wrist. It has eight pre-set positions that change the shower spray angle and redirect the water flow.
Opella displayed the d38 bath faucet and accessory collection, ranging from thermostatic valves to basin mixers. The products have a modern, clean design, with a look of sleek and functional elegance.
Ondine showed the ELS (Electronic Light Shower) showerhead that employs falling water and light in a single fixture. It offers users a waterfall experience with 270 no-clog spray channels. Fiber optics illuminated by a halogen light source are embedded in the channels to provide color and light.
Sterling introduced the Rockton™ toilet with Dual Force™ flushing technology. The exclusive Dual Force technology lets the user select one of two water levels - either 1.6 gallons or 0.8 gallons - each time the toilet is flushed. The toilet has a computer-designed trapway and flapperless valve. Its siphonic washdown system helps keep the bowl clean.
Myson introduced the affordable SEO70 classic towel warmer with a 180-degree swing-away design. It plugs into a 120-volt outlet and its power consumption is comparable to a normal light bulb. The towel warmer is available in gloss white or chrome-plated finish.
MAAX unveiled its Urban series of bathtubs, showers, massage systems, medicine cabinets and lighting, which provides a suite of bath products that feature the minimalist look. Most of the tubs in the series are equipped with extras, such as a cascading waterfall and a new filling method. The company also has introduced Aerofeel, a perimeter air system, and Hydrofeel, a whirlpool, with strategically positioned air and water jets for a deep, targeted massage.
ROHL displayed its Country Style pull-out faucet series that now features a Tuscan brass finish. The integrated pull-out handspray allows water to be directed where needed. The user can switch between aerated and spray patterns by pressing an oversized button on the handspray. The soft elastomer spray plate resists mineral build-up and can be removed for easy cleaning. The Tuscan brass finish is designed to naturally patina over time. Its coloring resembles oil-rubbed bronze.
