Dorf has released a stylish new range of basin mixers reflecting the latest trend in tapware design.

Bold statement pieces are expected to be one of the biggest trends for tapware in 2016, allowing designers and homeowners to express their unique sense of style. One of the strongest emerging trends at this year’s ISH fair in Frankfurt, the world’s biggest bathroomware showcase, was the integration of an industrial aesthetic with an infusion of colour.

Marylou Paino, trend forecaster and interior designer at CM Design points to Dorf’s new Industrie basin mixer as a prime example of capturing this signature style and personal energy. She observes that there is a noticeable shift from chrome or stainless steel towards careful and considered use of colours such as black, white and even red in bathroom design.

Stylists, budding interior designers and creative, style-conscious homeowners are confidently integrating industrial-themed statement tapware into their upcoming bathroom projects. Marylou notes that Dorf’s Industrie draws inspiration from this powerful aesthetic, creating a shamelessly distinctive look.

Key design features of Industrie basin mixers and tower basin mixers include twin tap handles in a choice of red, black or white colours; quality European internals, including ¼-turn ceramic discs, concealed aerators and Ultraflex PEX hoses for superior durability and flexibility; and smart design delivering Dorf’s signature craftsmanship.

To demonstrate their confidence in the quality craftsmanship of all Dorf tapware, the Dorf residential warranty has been increased to an industry-leading 20 years.
