Geometric design works it’s way into the bathroom too

Metropol is the latest design to come out of hansgrohe’s beautiful library of products. This new range of striking mixers merge geometric precision with distinctive design.Copyright: hansgrohe / Hansgrohe SEIn collaboration with its partner of many years, Phoenix Design, the brand hansgrohe has developed its most comprehensive range of mixers to date; it not only features a choice of three types of handles, but is also the first range to include a floor-standing washbasin mixer for use with free-standing washbasins.

What really makes the design of these pieces different is the distinctive design using geometric contours, spheres and rectangles.

The basin mixers come in four different tap heights, providing space for individual needs, whether for washing hands, shaving or filling receptacles.Copyright: hansgrohe / Hansgrohe SEWith an overall height of about 1200 millimetres, the new floor-standing Metropol basin mixer is not only a visually striking highlight in the bathroom, but can also be easily positioned, making it a flexible complement to free-standing washbasins. For a stylish overall ambience, the comprehensive Metropol range also includes shower and bathtub mixers for exposed or concealed installation. A floor-standing model is a fitting and attractive solution for free-standing bathtubs.Copyright: hansgrohe / Hansgrohe SEThere is a version of the mixer handle with integrated Select technology. It combines minimalist design with the intuitively easy Select control: the flow of water can be turned on and off at the simple touch of a button. If you have soapy hands, for instance, you can press the button using the back of your hand or your lower arm and your mixer stays dry and clean. The technology is purely mechanical and works by means of a specially designed cartridge. This added convenience requires neither electricity nor additional devices in the base cabinet.
