Kludi Nova Fonte is not simply a new range in the sophisticated smart luxury segment – it is a concept that is arguably unique in the world of fittings that opens up a wide range of design options for the bathroom. With the three design variations Classic, Puristic and Déco, each of which interprets the classic-modern bathroom in its own way, the Sauerland-based fittings specialist Kludi (www.kludi.com) offers bathroom designers a wide range of options - the right solution for every style of living and personal taste in furnishing.
The perfect solution for every style
The three style options find visible expression in particular in the way handles and tap bases combine purist and classic design elements. All design variations - inspired by the magnificent historical two-handle fittings - transfer their grace and elegance into the modern by uncompromisingly reducing the archetypal form in its purity and clarity to the essential. The result are unique pieces of timeless elegance and value.
Whether cross, wing or star handles, whether the tap base is stepped like a column, strictly minimalist or slightly playful - the three versions of Kludi Nova Fonte bear the same geometrically modern design signature so that they can be perfectly combined in a bathroom. Eighteen different versions of two-handle fittings leave virtually nothing to be desired for the style of the washbasin in any design-focused bathroom: In addition to three-hole and single-hole mixers for stand assembling, concealed variants for wall mounting with spouts in two lengths are also available. Kludi Nova Fonte also offers matching two-handle mixers for bath and shower as well as bath- and shower sets in all three style variants.
Classic: Balanced interplay of forms
Balanced proportions and structures, traditional shapes and materi-als, timeless quality and harmony characterise this world of style. The striking cross handle and the cylindrical, stepped, almost co-lumnar bases give Nova Fonte Classic its distinctive character. The cross handles follow in the tradition of classic style elements, while their clear and filigree design also gives them a contemporary look.
Puristic: Modern grace, everlasting elegance
Precise linear design, minimalist shapes, premium finishing and a conscious elimination of any superfluous details characterize this style. The exact geometries and minimalist shapes of the Nova Fonte Puristic wing handle and base embody timeless elegance and modern grace. Whether stand assembly or wall-mounted fittings, whether mixer for bath or shower - the design impresses throughout with its simple, calm clarity and a pleasant soothing way: pure, func-tional and aesthetically pleasing.
Déco: Expressively individual
Somewhat playful shapes, a restrained ornamentation and the use of selected materials characterize this style option. The elegant lines of the concave bases at Nova Fonte Déco are seamlessly continued in the curved star-shaped handle, which with its gentle curves fits comfortably in the hand. The fitting thus offers a tactile experience and at the same time becomes an eye-catcher with its equally elegant and expressive appearance. This applies all the more as Nova Fonte Déco combines decorative elements of Art Nouveau with modern country house aesthetics in its very own way.
More comfort, more water pleasure
Kludi Nova Fonte is not only convincing because of its versatile ap-plication possibilities and the creative potential of its three design variants. In addition, the new range of fittings also offers some interesting technical features and well considered details that increase the comfort of use and enhance the enjoyment of water in the bathroom. The pressure-independent laminar jet regulator, incorporated as standard in Kludi Nova Fonte washbasin fittings, ensures crystal-clear water, like the water in a lake up in the mountains. It produces a transparent stream of water, which – as opposed to the usual method – is not mixed with air. The water flows into the sink as quietly as a whisper and almost without splashing.
This is particularly relevant as Kludi Nova Fonte allows the water flow to be metered more precisely than is possible with conventional fittings. Thanks to special Soft-Start tops, which open and close the valve by 90°, the water flow can be precisely regulated: Precise regulation of the water quantity means that only the amount of water actually needed at the time flows. Furthermore, this avoids the annoying splashing of water, reducing the amount of cleaning needed at the washstand.
Further contributed by the swivel range of Nova Fonte's three-hole and single-hole pillar fitting at the wash place, which can be varied according to personal preferences and comfort requirements. It can be locked easily in place or limited to 150° using a ring. To enable the spout to swivel a full 360°, a second ring is required, which KLUDI provides with the fitting.
Zero percent plastic
Kludi completely eliminates plastic materials in the packaging of all products from the Nova Fonte range. Instead, the fittings specialist relies on organic packaging material made from starch, a renewable resource. The advantage for people and the environment: this poly-mer-like material is 100 percent biodegradable and compostable according to DIN 13432.
