Leading bathroom brand Roca presented a raft of new products and innovations at ISH 2015, with design and functionality combining throughout. With brassware playing a fundamental role in the bathroom both aesthetically and practically, much of the focus on the Roca stand in Frankfurt centred on a number of new taps and showers that combine the very latest technology with design-led appeal.
Three new brassware collections were unveiled, Atlas, L90C and Lanta, all of which will make a stylish addition to any washbasin. The mixers also have a wealth of technology concealed within their elegant design. Helping to reduce the amount of water used unnecessarily in the home, the mixers have a built-in flow limiter, whilst Roca’s Cold Start function also helps to save energy.
Another brassware highlight unveiled at ISH was a host of new showering solutions which combine comfort with ergonomics. With its extra-slim design, the Raindream showerhead garnered much attention throughout the show. Suitable for wall or ceiling installation, the sleek and minimal design of Raindream ensure this will be a statement piece in the contemporary wetroom or bathroom.
Visitors to ISH 2015 also enjoyed a preview of the new Inspira collection from Roca. Due to launch to the UK market in 2016, Inspira is an innovative range of sanitaryware available in three shapes which respond to modern bathroom trends – Round, Soft and Square – all of which can be combined in a number of ways to create an individual finish. Inspira also features washbasins made from FINECERAMIC®, Roca’s exclusive new ceramic material which allows more precision, sophisticated design details and shapes which were previously not possible.
This much-anticipated collection also includes a rimless toilet, with Roca now including this increasingly popular option on a number of its existing sanitaryware ranges too, including The Gap and Debba. This new generation of hygienic WCs are designed to provide a perfect flushing performance with low water consumption.
Technology is also having a huge effect on the future of the WC, as was highlighted with Roca’s Smart Toilets on show at ISH 2015. With intelligent and fully customisable features, this integrated shower toilet is designed to be an important part of the user’s daily hygiene routine.
