Geberit enjoyed a successful outing to Frankfurt earlier this month, as the leading sanitary systems manufacturer showcased a raft of new innovations to a global audience at ISH 2013.Where better than the world’s biggest bathroom exhibition to introduce a new look to one of the manufacturer’s most popular flush plates? Grabbing lots of attention at ISH was Geberit’s re-designed Sigma50 flush plate, which has been modernised and refreshed by its designer, Christoph Behling and now incorporates gently curved buttons and no outer frame to create a seamless and timeless look.
The Sigma50 flush plate is also now available in a new colour, Umbra, echoing the trend for natural colour palettes in the bathroom. Other finishes include white, black, pergamon, green satinised, smoked glass and white grains, stainless steel, as well as a totally bespoke option.
Another highlight of the Geberit stand at ISH was the company’s new Aquaclean Sela, the first complete WC solution with integrated shower function that looks just like a stylish, high end ceramic. Created by Milan-based architect and designer, Matteo Thun, Geberit AquaClean Sela neatly conceals the water and power connection and even the control panel is only visible when the lid is open, giving it a sleek and modern look.
This new shower toilet integrates its technology completely into the ceramic unit within two openings, which provide the necessary space to accommodate the electricity and water connections, as well as the water heater and functional unit. The AquaClean Sela is a perfect fit with Geberit’s market-leading Duofix framing system which has been fitted with an additional conduit pipe, making upgrading to the Aquaclean Sela as a retro-fit project or new build a simple process.
