Studio S Matte Black (Bathroom Faucets and Accessories) by Jean-Jacques L'Henaff
2018 - 2019, Platinum A' Bathroom Furniture and Sanitary Ware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The cool, modern look of urban spaces inspired the design of the Studio S Collection. This influence is apparent in the minimalist faucet designs and sleek black color in this collection: single-lever and vessel faucets showcase clean design lines with a unique nested handle design that eliminates the traditional gap when in the open position. The high-arc Studio S widespread faucet is available in two handle options: refined lever handles or a modern knob design.
Creativity
Studio S bath and shower faucets and accessories showcase a fashion-forward geometric silhouette juxtaposed with minimalistic surface details. Bathroom sink faucet configurations include monoblock, widespread and vessel faucet configurations. Showering options include Pressure Balance and Thermostatic valve options, diverter trims, and a drenching 8-inch rain showerhead. Rounding out the collection are accessories including towel bars, a towel ring, robe hook and pivoting toilet paper holder.
Design Challenges
Our challenge was to create a line of fittings that would highlight contemporary design without the hard edges and strict geometry commonly seen in European designs. The goal was to incorporate clean, sleek shapes that would express the flow of water. Also, on the single handle faucet, the Company had to develop a new mechanism that hides the connection between the handle and the valve in order to keep the shape seamless and elegant, with the smallest gaps possible between parts.
Production Technology
The faucets are made of lead-free brass and feature ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of drip-free performance. They incorporate patented, recessed handle operation on the monoblock and vessel faucets to maintain their sleek, elegant style. SpeedConnect drain technology provides fast installation and trouble-free operation for the life of the faucet.
