Villeroy & Boch is unveiling a whole range of interesting new bathroom products for 2016. Including hygiene and comfort enhancements in its toilet collections, new colour themes for the Artis surface-mounted washbasins and personalised shower solutions in the form of the Squaro Infinity and Subway Infinity. The successful Architectura and O.novo collections are also being expanded with new items such as hand-rinse washbasins and additional DirectFlush toilet models. The extended line-up is rounded off with some additions to the Vivia comfort collection, the Legato furniture series, My View mirror line and many more new developments.
Artis washbasin series – a colourful twist on elegant functionality
Villeroy & Boch is expanding its Artis range in 2016. Available in four shapes - round, oval, square and rectangular - the Artis washbasin series is made from TitanCeram, a novel material developed by Villeroy & Boch specially for the production of high-quality premium designs. The colour concept linked to the extension of the range was developed in partnership with the German-Danish designer Gesa Hansen, who had previously worked with Villeroy & Boch on a new colour concept for kitchen sinks. Gesa Hansen lives and works in Paris and has already received several international design prizes for her work, including theRed Dot Design Award and the International Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum.
Subway Infinity and Squaro Infinity – personalised shower solutions
The Subway Infinity series consists of ceramic shower bases available in a wide variety of models in standard market sizes, as well as customised dimensions and special shapes. To ensure particularly harmonious integration in the surrounding floor tiles, Villeroy & Boch offers Subway Infinity shower bases in the patterns of selected floor tiles, in addition to the three anti-slip colours of White Alpine, Ardoise and Taupe. Three patterns are currently available - Lodge Beige-Effect, X-Plane Creme-Effect and X-Plane Anthracite-Effect, all with an anti-slip class rating of A (PN12) for extra safety. A further four patterns will be presented at SHK 2016.
The Squaro Infinity shower base is made from Quaryl® and can also be produced in customised dimensions as well as various standard sizes. From 2016, there is the option of trimming shower trays to size directly on site. Instructions and an explanatory video will be provided.
ViFresh and ViSeat – hygiene and comfort
ViFresh, Villeroy & Boch's latest toilet innovation, allows you to enjoy all the benefits of modern DirectFlush technology while still being able to use conventional fragranced toilet blocks or gels. The ViFresh toilet features an integrated compartment behind the seat which can be filled with standard fragranced blocks or gels. As well as the hygiene benefits - the compartment can be filled without touching the inside of the bowl - this is also a very aesthetic solution as the compartment is integrated almost invisibly in the ceramic and sealed securely with a lid.
ViSeat is another Villeroy & Boch toilet innovation: a toilet seat featuring a whole range of comfort enhancements, including a pleasant night light and adjustable seat heating.
