Product watch: BetteCurve and BetteLiv

Bette has introduced two new counter-top bowl washbasins, designed by Tesseraux + Partner, combining a contemporary slim-rimmed design with the strength of glazed titanium-steel…

The BetteCurve and BetteLiv washbasins may look delicate, but such is the strength of the material, that they come with a 30 year warranty and are as suitable for bars, restaurants and hotels, as they are for private homes. Bette creates the basins from titanium-steel, which is then covered with a durable enamel surface. This surface is extremely scratch-resistant and easy to clean and also means that they are available in a wide range of colours.

The BetteCurve basin has an organic, slightly outwardly curved shape, which slopes inwards at the top with a gently rounded edge. The luxurious curvy shape is like a pebble that has been gradually smoothed and hollowed by water and can only be created using the strong steel material. The inwardly sloping top also has the benefit of helping to keep splashes within the basin. The BetteCurve basin is available with a diameter of 320 mm or 420 mm and is 115 mm high.

BetteLiv is a minimalist interpretation of the classic wash bowl. With plenty of space for handwashing and cleaning teeth, it has an elegant, slightly reduced depth. The BetteLiv basin is available with a diameter of 320 mm or 420 mm and is 100 mm high.

In addition to glossy white and numerous other glossy colours, the new basins are available in 32 matt colours and four shimmering effect colours: Blue Satin, Forest, Midnight and Daylight. The waste covers are also enamelled in the same colour as the basin itself, and the basins can also be finished with BetteGlaze Plus, which has a water and dirt-repellent effect to reduce the cleaning required.

Both basins have a completely flat underside which means that, whatever surface the basins are being installed onto, there will be an almost seamless connection. The basins also feature sound insulation as standard.

Like all Bette bathroom products made of durable, glazed titanium steel, the new bowl washbasins are fully recyclable. They are made in Germany, free of plastic and without chemical additives, thinners and solvents. In addition, Bette uses a high percentage of carbon-neutral green steel in its production. The company has a strong focus on energy management, and has been generating electricity and heat from combined heat and power plants and from solar for many years.
