“We want to make people sit up and take notice!”

Fittings specialist KLUDI presents pioneering innovations for lifestyle bathrooms and modern kitchens at the ISH 2023

“As a global-player in specialist fittings, the ISH is the ideal platform for us to showcase truly exciting KLUDI bathroom and kitchen innovations, to visitors from all over the world,” explains Arndt Papenfuss, Marketing Director of the Kludi Group. “And we will be bringing several revolutionary innovations for the shower and the smart bathroom to really make people sit up and take notice at the fair!” The premium brand from Germany’s Sauerland region, will be presenting new designs as well as classic products in an exhibition booth of around 500 square metres. For the first time, KLUDI will be exhibiting its products in the particularly attractive Hall 3 at the Frankfurt exhibition centre (Booth 3.1, D11).

Dive into inspiring shower worlds
The focus will be on innovative solutions for the shower. “As previously with our bathroom and kitchen fittings, we are not just limiting ourselves to new products for showers, we have also radically changed our shower head assortment compared to our competitors,” emphasises Arndt Papenfuss. “In keeping with the motto ‘less is more,’ it focuses on the products that customers really want, is compact, and differentiates clearly and easily between three performance classes.”

KLUDI’s new Dive shower head range is also likely to cause a ‘splash’. Its’ hand showers, large head showers and shower systems not only surprise with new design concepts. KLUDI has also developed three new types of jet for its multi-jet hand showers. “We asked 100 customers of celebrity hairdresser Chris Coenen what they thought would make for a perfect hand shower, and we then incorporated their responses into our development of the Dive,” explains Marketing Director Papenfuss.

KLUDI makes the shower smart ...
Two digital shower fittings for high-end applications with two or three consumers will also be celebrating their world premiere at the ISH. They digitally control the water volume and temperature – either intuitively by means of flush-mounted recessing knobs or from a convenient touch panel.

... and even the kitchen sink
The new Kludi E-GO Voice kitchen fitting also features a digital controller. Up to three different water volumes can be programmed and activated with its digital lever. In other aspects it has the same operating functions as a conventional fitting lever. Even more smart convenience is offered by the option of operating the fitting by voice control using Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

Nothing gets flatter than this
In time for the ISH, the proven Kludi Flexx.Boxx will be updated to create the new and improved Slim.Boxx. The new name says it all. The 2023 version of the KLUDI concealed installation unit, which is extremely popular with trade specialists, will be flatter and slimmer than ever before. This applies both to the concealed box itself with its reduced installation depth of 75 millimetres, as well as to the elegant rosettes of the trim sets. With a visibly minimised diameter, they are just a few millimetres high and thus significantly flatter and smaller than all comparable rival products.

Elegant, light, modern
This year, KLUDI is expanding its design-oriented ‘Smart Luxury’ segment for sophisticated bathroom design requirements with a range of fittings in the Contemporary style. Kludi Louva convinces with purist elegance and soothing lightness. This is attributable to the conically shaped base body in conjunction with the flat, very shallow spout and the corresponding lever. The series, which includes sink- and wall-mounted single-lever basin mixers as well as concealed and surface-mounted versions for bathtubs and showers, will be available in chrome, matt black and matt white finishes.
