Kludi E2: Fresh spirit in the bathroom
Away from everyday stress, the bathroom becomes a recreation area in your own home. Function, ergonomics and design – everything has to be just right. With the E2 collection, “drawing water” is a pleasure. With its sensual aura, the mixer communicates with the user on an emotional level and its wide range of products fulfil the desires of anyone in need of an inspiring, relaxing bath.
To counterbalance hectic everyday life, clear lines, muted colours and shapes are needed; in fact everything that serves to calm the mind and body. This goal can also be combined with cool elegance, as KLUDI has proved. Why compromise on comfort or good design when both are possible? With KLUDI E2, the fittings specialist from Menden has designed a collection with unique aesthetics. The soft shapes, rounded corners and edges as well as the tablet-like levers are all timelessly modern. "It is made for modern living in all its facets," comments designer Michael Stein. Thanks to the minimalist design combining clean lines with gentle curves, the mixer cuts a figure in both geometrically designed bathrooms as well as in more organic surroundings. The ultra-flat lever, a recurring theme throughout the range, is also ergonomically comfortable to handle.
The best example of this is the collection's single-lever mixer, the soft forms of which provide a tactile experience for users, inviting them to touch it. The sophisticated tablet-like architecture of the handle, which is made of chrome-plated brass, is the characteristic design element of the mixer. It allows a playful ease of operation, whilst appearing attractive and functional. Just a few millimetres are needed for the operating element, indicating how playfully elegant yet accurate the water flow is with this lever. The high quality of the design was recognised by the German Design Awards 2016, which awarded the mixer a ‘Special Mention’, and the iF Design Award 2015. In line with the KLUDI space concept, which aims to facilitate planning and use of the washing area, the single-lever mixers are particularly flexible in their design. Available as a wall mounting or stand fitting, with four height variations and different spout lengths, it offers a solution for any washing area.
The bathtub fitting of the KLUDI E2 lives up to this high standard of design, function and ergonomics. Available as a free-standing, wall or bathtub-edge mounting for any bathtub, it elegantly combines two types of use in the bathtub: a high-flow bath filler to run the bath quickly and a handset for showering in the bath or rinsing off. Easy, fast and convenient toggling is possible using the sensitive pull knob. Independent of the design type, the bathtub consistently adheres to the design concept of the wash stand mixer KLUDI E2 with minimalist forms and a soft, sensual finish. The distinctive feature of the collection should not be overlooked: the striking, ergonomic handle with subtle hot-cold symbols is also a pivotal element in the design.
In the shower area, the versatility of the E2 collection is particularly effective: a wide range from the convenient, concealed solution to the pragmatic surface-mounted variant fulfils every design or required use. From the spacious variant with impressive cascade to the handset for flexible showering, all necessary fittings are available in the characteristic soft-edge design. In keeping with the KLUDI E2, a high-quality line of accessories is also available. Chromed metal and hand-blown opaque glass in the characteristic soft-edge design complement the lines of the fittings perfectly: towel holders, soap dispensers, toilet paper holders, toothbrush glasses; all for a uniformly customised bathroom.
