Franz Viegener Introduces New Architectural Line of Faucets at WestEdge Design Fair 2018

SANTA MONICA, CA – Franz Viegener, the designers and producers of precision-engineered sculptural bath fittings for the residential and contract hospitality markets, is exhibiting at the WestEdge Design Fair, October 18-21, 2018, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. The company will debut its new single hole faucets, stunning additions to their already popular Lollipop and Nerea series; both part of the larger Premium Collection of faucets. Additional distinctive offerings from the Premium Collection will also be shown in the booth #205.

Franz Viegener is steadily building its brand in North America. The luxury brand recently expanded its offerings with the introduction of a highly curated collection of precision-engineered, all-brass faucets that are an amalgam of geometric and sculptural designs. The Franz Viegener Premium Collection is a high- end, meticulously crafted and engineered line of bath fittings produced in a dedicated facility within the company’s 700,000 square foot state-of-the-art complex in Buenos Aires.


Some highlights at the show will be:

Lollipop Single Hole Faucet
Franz Viegener’s Lollipop Single Hole faucet is long and lean and available with or without diamond knurling details. The no-notch-back tilting handle is another example of the precision-engineering that goes into every product from Franz Viegener. Moving the easy-to-grip, ADA-compliant handle forward or back provides users with a tactile experience when turning the faucet off and on. The knurled Lollipop carried the texture through the design, mirrored in the edge of the spout, which balances the overall effect. Available finishes: polished chrome, polished nickel, brushed nickel, polished gold, brushed gold, rose gold, matte black chrome, flat black and oil rubbed bronze.

Nerea Single Hole Faucet
The name Nerea is derived from Greek, and it means ‘to flow, to swim, to navigate’— an apt description for this elegant collection. The Nerea Single Hole faucet has a 6" spout reach and a knurled no-notch- back tilting handle. Like all of their collections, Franz Viegener’s manufacturing practices also include lead-free brass. Available finishes: polished chrome, polished nickel, brushed nickel, polished gold, brushed gold, rose gold, matte black chrome, flat black and oil rubbed bronze.

 

Edge

Distilling faucet design down to its essence, Franz Viegener has created the visual equivalent of a die-cut piece of steel with its Edge collection. Its monolithic silhouette reveals a graceful, sophisticated and ultra- modern faucet that has been crafted to impeccable detail and precision. When viewed from various angles, Edge reveals its modern engineering genius. Even the flat, fin-like arched handles are precision- machined, as if cut from the same silhouette. Edge is skillfully manufactured from solid brass, available with cross handles as well, called Edge Plus and available in polished nickel, polished chrome, oil rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, matte black chrome, flat black, rose gold, polished gold and brushed gold.
