INDIANAPOLIS – Brizo®, the faucet brand for the fashion forward, delivers its sleekest kitchen design to date with Solna®, a modern, European kitchen pull-down. Solna takes contemporary to a new level with crisp lines influenced by Scandinavian furniture and a seamless hidden pull-down wand that affords homeowners the luxury of both stream and spray settings.
“Solna was an exercise in creating a truly minimal and clean design, with exceptional sleekness,” said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Brizo. “The Solna is riding the ever-increasing wave of prominence of the modern design trend, which, at this moment, happens to fall into the mid-century modern sphere.”
Solna features the Brizo brand’s first-ever hidden pull-down wand housed neatly inside the spout and held securely through MagneDock® Technology, an exclusive magnetic docking system that utilizes a powerful magnet to securely lock the wand in place. Similar in functionality to magnetic closures found on totes and personal electronics cases, this magnetic connection makes the wand extremely easy to engage and disengage, without any risk of the wand slipping from the spout when not in use.
Solna incorporates a next generation DIAMOND™ valve, an integrated ceramic valve cartridge featuring one ceramic disc and one diamond-embedded ceramic disc. As the two discs move against each other, the diamond-embedded disc constantly polishes the uncoated ceramic disc, removing calcium and mineral deposits. The valve lasts up to ten times the industry standard, requires no lubrication, eliminates wear on seals, and ensures “like new” operation for life.
Care in How It’s Built
Solna is compliant with current low lead legislation and is available in Polished Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless and Brilliance® Brushed Bronze finishes in single-hole, single-handle kitchen and bar/prep configurations.
 California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953) and Vermont Law No. 193 (S152) and upcoming national legislation mandate that the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% on wetted surfaces.
