“I wanted to create an elegant, low profile wall top assembly design which could be retrofitted into existing environments. It is a lot easier to design tapware with a slender form for new builds and chunky profile tapware for established spaces. The challenge comes in when trying to achieve a sleek, retrofittable design.”
Since Phoenix Tapware released their cornerstone Vivid range some 10ish years ago, they has been slowly adding to the collection of Vivid products. Subtle and not so subtle updates to finishes, form and design features have created a rich and polyvalent collection of bathroom fixtures and tapware.
Phoenix’s latest addition to the family is the Vivid Slimline Plus range, an extension to the ever-popular Vivid Slimline Range, which was designed to add more movement and flexibility to the Vivid range. The Plus upgrade sees the addition of cross shaped handles to the traditionally curvature-based range.
“Like with all designs, balance and proportion are important. As the range is a tapware set, balance needs to be achieved not just in each piece, but when handles are placed with the outlet as well.”
The Vivid Slimline Plus, like all of Phoenix’s 2019 ranges, is available in a versatile array of finishes. The recent staple, matte black, the minimalist brushed nickel, the restrained gun metal, the ever-classic chrome and for the more fanciful of designers, the eye-catching brushed gold. Bathroom designers and renovators across Australia are sure to welcome in the new additions with delight. As with any Phoenix design, impeccable quality marries with impeccable design in the new Slimline Plus range to provide yet another seamless tapware option for aesthetes.
“Phoenix Design Identity is about being visually effortless and attention to detail. Vivid Slimline Plus is no exception with the teardrop shape, on the side of the handle, transforming into the cross hair detailing on the front face.”
