IXL is introducing three new modules to its Tastic Neo family of heat,
light and ventilation solutions. Consisting of a vent and light module, a vent
module and a heat module, the new products will be released in February 2015.
Designed as a natural extension of the current Neo single and dual models,
the new Neo modules offer the light, vent and heat components as single or dual
Ingeniously designed by local manufacturing firm IXL, the range allows consumers
to customise their bathing environment by enabling them to select the
components they want from the ventilation, lighting and heating modules, and
place them in their bathroom.
Neo modules can be selected as standalone bathroom comfort solutions or
as additional modules to coordinate with existing Neo single or dual units.
IXL launched the original IXL Tastic three-in-one heat, light and
ventilation solution for bathrooms more than 30 years ago, with the Tastic Neo
released more recently to meet the evolving needs of consumers over time.
IXL industrial designer Paul Iversen explains that their discussions
with architects and designers indicated a strong call for the lighting, heating
and ventilation components of the Neo to be offered individually and in the
Adding luxurious comfort and providing the design flexibility to
complement individual design and bathroom layouts, the new modules allow bathing
environments to be customised in an endless variety of ways.
For instance, a Neo heat module can be positioned above the preferred
drying area or above the bath. A Neo ventilation module is ideal for bathrooms
that may already have a central light source and only requires a ventilation
module, which can also be positioned directly above the shower. For bathrooms with
an existing heating source such as hydronic or in-floor heating, a Neo Vent n
light module is a smart contemporary lighting and ventilation choice as a duo
or as separate modules.
