INDIANAPOLIS - Reinvention is at the core of what it means to be fashionable. The VirageTM bath collection by Brizo®, the fashion faucet brand, beautifully embodies this spirit with its evolution of a classic faucet design. The Virage collection refines the familiar, timeless geometry of a graceful arcing spout with an unexpected twisting, turning effect. The result is a hallmark Brizo design unlike anything else, one that further advances Brizo's fashion-forward position.
"The Virage collection was inspired by the beautiful iron work we found throughout Europe. It was everywhere -- gates, balconies and door hardware - and it was stunning," said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for the Brizo brand. "We used that inspiration to create a design that is outside the usual categories of traditional and modern. By offering a variety of finishes, Virage has the ability to appeal to a wide range of design sensibilities."
The unique design of the Virage collection has gained international recognition. The faucet received an honorable mention in the 2010 Red Dot product design competition, one of the largest design competitions worldwide.
Twisting, turning details are carried through every element of the collection, from the faucet handles to the showerheads. The Virage collection includes a full suite of fixtures that provide luxury and customization for the homeowner:
- Widespread lavatory
- Vessel widespread lavatory
- Two-handle wall mount lavatory
- Three and four hole roman tubs
- Wall and ceiling mount raincan showerheads
- Medium Flow TempAssure® shower trims
- SensoriTM High Flow Thermostatic shower trims
Rooted in inventive technology, the new raincan showerheads feature Brizo's H20kinetic Technology®, providing a warmer, more luxurious spray that uses less water by controlling water's shape, velocity and thermal dynamics - without sacrificing the user experience. There are two options: a water-efficient 6-inch
wall mount that flows at 2.0 gallons per minute (gpm); and an 8-inch ceiling mount that flows at the standard 2.5 gpm. In addition, Virage lavatories are WaterSense® labeled and compliant with low-lead legislation. They flow with at 1.5 gpm and incorporate a laminar flow that gracefully delivers a clear, smooth, stream from the faucet spout.
The Virage bath collection is available in five finishes: Polished Chrome, Venetian Bronze®, Brilliance® Brushed Nickel, Brilliance® Polished Nickel, and Brilliance® Brushed Bronze, each available in a limited lifetime warranty. One of Brizo's silver finishes gives the collection a clean, art deco sensibility. For a more traditional look, consider one of Brizo's warmer bronze finishes. A complete line of accessories - including lighting and a mirror - is also available to carry the distinctive design throughout the entire bath.
