Bathroom fittings are one of the most frequently used products in a building and that’s why global manufacturer, GROHE, is paying extra close attention to the durability of its surfaces and expanding its range of colour finishes…

Ahead of HIX this month, GROHE has extended its Colour Collection to include a new premium matte black finish, Phantom Black.

Thanks to a three-layer lacquer coating technique providing the deepest of matte black finishes, all GROHE Phantom Black products have been enhanced to be more durable, as well as being more resistant against corrosion, fading and scratches than other matte black variants treated with powder coating. In addition, Phantom Black is more repellent to visible fingerprints resulting in less cleaning and are easier to take care of – perfect for busy environments.

“Black is a colour that has always played a huge role in the world of design, be it fashion, art, or interior design. Despite its boldness, it is a neutral shade, that is versatile and easy to combine with more vibrant colours to balance them out. Black is always associated with a certain sophistication and luxury, while never feeling dated. That’s why people are often drawn to it, because it is elegant and modern at the same time. In the bathroom context, it helps to elevate the space by giving it a sleek look and feel.” Patrick Speck, Leader, LIXIL Global Design, EMENA and GROHE UK.

Across its Colours Collection, GROHE relies on a technology which originates from the aerospace industry: Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD), resulting in finishes that are three times harder and ten times more scratch-resistant than galvanized finishes, while delivering a diverse range of premium finishes.

The GROHE Colours Collection currently consists of 15 finishes and is available across the full suite of bathroom categories, including taps, showers, thermostats, flush plates which are also available as glossy black variants and accessories, to ensure a coordinated design concept that lasts.
