The fittings specialist Kludi really caused a stir in the market when they launched the Nova Fonte series two years ago. Indeed, Kludi’s Nova Fonte is much more than a mere fittings collection. Available in three different design lines – Classic, Puristic and Déco – Nova Fonte holds the perfect solution for every home and interior. The leading Sauerland-based brand has pushed out the creative bounds of sophisticated bathroom design with the launch of the Kludi Nova Fonte Pura – an elegant range of single-lever mixers that extends the premium collection. “Pura is the ideal addition to the Nova Fonte series. Our concept, which is unique on the fittings market, is now complete and provides architects and bathroom designers with a multitude of design options for achieving aesthetic perfection,” explains Arndt Papenfuß, Marketing Director for the Kludi Group. “Pura, with its extraordinarily sophisticated design and neat, puristic lines, embodies the spirit of our times superbly and adds a distinctly striking touch to bathrooms. It won us the prestigious Red Dot Award 2022, which I believe is well-merited.”
Vital statistics: 9–21–36
Nova Fonte Pura single-lever mixers have such a unique, sophisticated shape and subtle lightness that no other fittings come close to them in terms of their coherent, meticulous design. The diameter of the gently curved spout measures a mere 21 millimetres. The body of the fitting is almost equally as slender with a diameter of 36 millimetres, while the flat handle is no more than 9 millimetres wide and features extremely precise flanging radii. These minimalist geometries, carefully balanced proportions and meticulous transition between the spout and body lend Pura fittings a classic elegance and expressive aesthetics. To display this modern purism in all its beauty, the single-lever mixers will be produced with two other finishes, alongside classic chrome – on-trend matt black and stylish matt white (from spring 2023).
Sustainable – from the factory to the bathroom
The extremely sophisticated design and minimalist dimensions of all Nova Fonte Pura models also significantly reduces the amount of material used in their production, which leads to considerable savings in terms of raw materials and energy. When it comes to packaging, Kludi also insists on using materials that have been tested and certified as sustainable. The Sauerland-based fittings specialist has replaced plastics with organic pack-aging material produced from starch, a renewable raw material. Similar to plastic, this alternative packaging material is biodegradable and compostable according to the specifications of the European standard DIN EN 13432.
Furthermore, the water flow rate of all Pura washbasin fittings has been reduced to five litres per minute, without compromising the quality of the jet. This protects both the environment and resources – especially in the case of hot water, where less water also means greater energy efficiency. “With these features reducing the ecological footprint of the Nova Fonte Pura, it meets the demands of contemporary sustainability in a very special way,” confirms Marketing Director Arndt Papenfuß. “This is just another reason why Nova Fone Pura is the achetype of a new era.”
