Bathrooms have long played a key role in defining a person’s individual style of furnishing inside the home. Designing a bathroom interior is all a matter of incorporating a personal touch. Individuality can be expressed by drawing on different types of styles, trends and exclu-sivity, resulting in a contemporary bathroom design. To this end, the Sauerland-based fittings specialist Kludi (www.kludi.com) has conceived its design-led Smart Luxury portfolio with the needs of discerning customers in mind. Including a comprehensive range of fittings in four design lines – Contemporary, Modern Classic, Puristic and Avantgarde – it provides great scope for creating the perfect sophisticated bathroom to suit any style. The premium brand’s new series, Kludi Louva, brings even more options for incorporating a unique personal touch in the style of the bathroom.
Home comforts in the modern bathroom
Louva is another range of fittings in Kludi’s Contemporary style, which combines simple elegance with a pleasing lightness. Its minimalistic and simple design language revolves around distinct lines and the perfect fusion of geometric shapes. The conical base body of the washbasin fitting, for example, forms a harmonious ensemble with the flat, very shallow spout and the semicircular shape of the lever. ‘The exciting combination of LOUVA’s classic L-shape design and filigree lightness gives it a unique timeless elegance – unimposing with a very likeable appeal.’ explains designer Michael Stein. Louva is an outstanding match for the deliberate simplicity of contemporary architecture and interior design, while also adding a welcome homely touch.
The sink- and wall-mounted single-lever washbasin mixers feature modern water-saving technologies as standard, which limits the flow to five litres per minute – without sacrificing any comfort. Further savings can be achieved with the EcoPlus washbasin mixer, which delivers only cold water when the lever is in the central position. The Kludi Louva range also includes concealed and surface-mounted version for bathtubs and showers. The series is available with chrome, matt black and matt white finishes.
Recyclable and compostable
Kludi has also applied its sustainable packaging concept to its fittings range – as it has done with all new products since 2019. The company insists on using only environmentally friendly materials, which can either be reused or composted after use. ‘Avoiding non-recyclable plastics is a must today, if we want to take sustainability seriously,’ says Papenfuss. ‘This is why we use bio-based alternatives made from renewable raw materials.’
