Flowing charms Contemporary or classic, or both? The sculptural new Grandera™ collection from Grohe suits all decors Today, informed design doesn’t always fit one distinct category or another. An eclectic decor is also very much in favor. So it makes good sense for a faucet innovator to create a collection that melds gracefully with both traditional and modern looks, and designs that sit in between. Grohe products often attract international design awards on the strength of their stand-out form, attention to detail and the use of highend technologies, says Mike Purcell, director of product marketing, Grohe America. “And Grohe’s new Grandera™ bath collection is no exception. This refined product line merges round and square forms to create an individual ‘squircle’ shape – an harmonious look that suits a range of design styles. “The extensive, fashion-forward collection includes single and classic wide-set faucets, deck-mounted Roman tub fillers and floormounted fillers; coordinated overhead showers and hand showers.” Grohe has also created a matching range of white porcelain accessories – everything from soap dispensers and beakers to shower shelves. Products in the collection are available in two sleek finishes, chrome and brushed nickel. “Both finishes are scratch resistant and never lose their shine, even when subjected to heavy use and frequent cleaning. The collection features Grohe SilkMove® technology for a lifetime of smooth operation and precise handling.” Grandera™ is manufactured in Germany to exacting quality standards. “Grandera’s™ fluid forms complement any bathroom decor, whether it is clean-lined and minimalist or more traditional,” says Purcell.
