Just a quick glance at the beautiful precision underpinning the angular detailing of Nero’s latest tapware collection reveals a striking fusion of remarkable quality, refined design language and manufacturing artistry. Opal, the latest product range boldly defined by the striking pattern of multidirectional diamond prisms, is a beautiful expression of Nero’s design ethos – and here, we take a closer look at all of its intricate components.
Nero is an Australian bathroom design brand, and their products are designed by a highly skilled team based in Victoria. Driven by the desire to tap into the needs, preferences and aspirations of the contemporary consumer, the brand’s unostentatious, intuitive and functional aesthetic encapsulates the most captivating global bathroom trends, as well as some of the most distinct Australian idiosyncrasies.
The sleek lines of their unique products are anchored by an exceptional quality reflected both through the material selection as well as the manufacturing practices. With the conviction that the more an object is used in our everyday lives, the more durable it should be, Nero strives to create timeless, high-quality tapware and bathroom accessories that last. As a result, they only use premium, carefully selected raw materials and their products are made with the enduring dezincification resistant brass at a renowned tapware factory in China.
Spanning an impressive 53,333 square metre, the highly-coveted manufacturing facility was founded almost 20 years ago and today boasts a suite of high-end capabilities that lie at the heart of Nero’s outstanding quality. The facility’s Machine Workshop and CNC Centre are equipped with the latest innovation in machining craft, enabling Nero to achieve exquisite precision in creating their signature designs. The Automatic Polishing Centre boasts advanced robotic polishing capabilities and the PVD Plating Workshop brings the latest in the Physical Vapour Deposition technology into the process – both are central to the products’ sleek and enduring finish that comes with a 10–year warranty.
Underlying all manufacturing practices is Nero's commitment to quality control. Products undergo meticulous assessment at every stage of production and are 100% leakage tested, ensuring long-lasting tapware for the Australian market. Nero also exclusively utilises the highest quality DZR brass known for its durability and resistance to corrosion.
Moreover, Nero's dedicated and highly skilled team of craftspeople – treated by the founders as an extension of the family – honours every part of the manufacturing process with attention to detail and unwavering passion for ultimate quality.

Nero's exceptional capabilities, innovative streak, commitment to traditional craftsmanship, and remarkable product quality are further enhanced by a set of values that set the brand apart.
