These successes once again clearly demonstrate the Mettlach-based company’s strong positioning with its products designed to create stylish looks throughout the entire home. Almost no other manufacturer offers collections and colour schemes that coordinate perfectly in every detail – from the washbasin and unit to bathroom textiles in harmonious shades.
The German Design Award was introduced in 2012 by the German Design Council, a world-leading centre of excellence for design. Only products nominated on the strength of their exceptional design quality can take part in the competition. An expert jury assesses the entries and selects the winners.
Award-winning: TwistFlush and Artis BiColour
The innovative TwistFlush water-saving toilet flushing system uses the physical force of a controlled water vortex to thoroughly rinse the entire inner surface of the toilet bowl. And it cleans so thoroughly that it generally eliminates the need for repeated flushing or tiresome cleaning with a brush. The toilet needs just 4.5 litres of water for a large flush and three litres for a small flush. This allows a family of four to save up to 19,700 litres of water a year – with a flushing performance that significantly exceeds the current standard requirements.
The Artis BiColour washbasin series is making a real style statement in the bathroom this year in the rich new colours of Indian Summer, Sage Green, Rust and Bordeaux, developed by the German-Danish designer Gesa Hansen. The Artis colour palette now includes a selection of eight shades for the delicate surface-mounted washbasins with coloured exteriors and a glossy pure white inner surface, in round, oval or square versions.
Award-winning: Subway Style ceramic sink
As diverse as life itself – the trendy Subway Style ceramic sink combines a timeless design with fine lines. It also impresses with clever functionality. The slender tap hole bench serves as a shelf for accessories, while the large basin offers lots of space for cleaning large kitchen utensils and additional accessories transform the sink area into the perfect workstation. The thin-walled ceramic is resistant to scratches and impacts, heat-resistant, food-safe and, thanks to the CeramicPlus surface finish, exceptionally easy to clean. Subway Style is available in 13 lightfast ceramic colours for 60 cm and 50 cm vanity units and can be installed either surface-mounted or flush-fitting depending on interior design and layout preferences.
