KWC Gives NKBA GA Chapter a Sneak Peek at Sexy New Faucet
Who knew there was so much behind faucet design? Not I, until last week. KWC in Norcross gave me—and other members of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) GA Chapter—a sneak peek into its latest mastermind in faucet design—Sin.
Before I could appreciate its sleek and functional design, I needed a little background. Sure, all of these faucets look cool with the variety of water flow options and the pretty list, but oh, a faucet can do so much more! David Delle Monache and Darryl Jones gave me the history and tour behind the design and functionality of their lines—and it all began with a music box. I was touched to find the reason for creating the HansaCanyon faucet was to help people who had lost feeling in their hands determine temperatures. So yes, the blue- or red-lit water is eye-catching, but is truly about the function of the faucet. The designer of the HansaMotion faucet studied the flow of water over rocks so that the faucet simulates this flow.
I also discovered that the pull-out faucet we all love so much today was invented by KWC back in the 1950s. Today, KWC has perfected this revolution with the highflex hose. No more annoying sound as you pull it out, and no more problems with the hose breaking down from wear and tear. This is a durable hose that bends and extends to fit your needs and then bounces right back in shape.
While I can’t yet disclose the details of the new SIN faucet because the design is still under wraps for a few more weeks, we’ll be featuring it exclusively on our blog in the near future, so stay tuned.
Thank you for the tour, Daryl. I was truly fascinated with the background behind all of the designs.
