1 Pure by Blu
Offering a range of deck- and wall-mountable basin and tub fillers, this collection features a noiseless aerator from Neoperl to reduce water consumption. The faucets’ levers are complemented by an electronic control.
2 Glacier by Wetstyle
This shower stall features an easily accessible zero-threshold base. Designed to be fully recessed into the floor or installed atop it, Glacier is made of Wetstyle’s proprietary stone composite, Wetmar Bio, a non-slip and environmentally friendly material.
3 Sensate by Kohler
With the wave of your hand, you can turn this touchless kitchen faucet on or off, its response time of 20 milliseconds minimizing the amount of water wasted. Sensate also has a magnetic docking system that locks the sprayhead securely into place.
4 Drake II G by Toto
Toto’s double-cyclone flushing system consumes just one gallon per flush – 20 per cent less than the average toilet. The total water savings for a family of four: nearly 7,000 gallons per year.
5 Grandera by Grohe
Thanks to its proprietary technology, this eco faucet collection at 5.7 litres/minute reduces water consumption by up to 30 per cent compared to standard products. It comes in dirt- and scratch-resistant chrome.
6 Starck 2 by Duravit
Originally launched 15 years ago, Philippe Starck’s circular washbasin, bathtubs, and contemporary shower trays have recently been relaunched in a delicate oval form. The tub now includes an integrated neckrest for optimal relaxation.
7 Raindance by Hansgrohe
Available in chrome or a combination of chrome and white, Raindance’s generously sized showerhead houses the patented AirPower aerator and offers three spray settings. An integrated exposed thermostat doubles as a small shelf.
8 MotionSense by Moen
This hands-free faucet has two sensors: the Wave Sensor at the top, which responds to hand movement, and the Ready Sensor at the faucet’s base, which identifies an object – such as a cup or pot – placed beneath the spout. The flow automatically shuts off when the object moves away.
9 Acquapura by Fantini
This built-in shower panel touts 378 front water sprays alongside a thermostatic mixer, a water-pressure knob and six backlit buttons that control various functions: a waterfall, front sprays and a water-saving hand shower.
