      Innovation in shower design: introducing Crossbox Push by Crosswater

      Innovation in shower design: introducing Crossbox Push by Crosswater

      One year on from the successful launch of the original Crossbox – a single universal installation box with multiple trim set designs – Crosswater has extended the range with the introduction of Crossbox Push

      Crossbox Push is Crosswater’s recently launched shower unit, which has evolved out of the success of Crossbox that launched last year. It comprises an all-metal backplate, rotary and temperature control which delivers a high-quality, premium feel – with five different MPRO trim-sets available.

      Available in a two or three outlet variant, the new coloured trim-sets offer enhanced choice, allowing the homeowner to select a trim design that will complement their existing décor.  Intelligent push technology relies on NEOPERL® ABS push buttons and FSG cartridge to provide a seamless showering experience, the user can easily transition between sources or alternatively, stop the flow completely.

      Comfort and safety is guaranteed with the vernet thermostatic cartridge technology, this means that whilst the temperature will be regulated, if there was a sudden change in water temperature, the thermostatic cartridge can adapt quickly and return the water to its comfortable pre-set temperature. Flühs precise 45-degree rotation, allows the water flow to be easily adjusted.

      Extremely easy to install, the Crossbox Push device requires installation via one single universal installation core. Enhanced with deeper 16.5mm projection, the backplate can easily accommodate the push technology whilst retaining its sleek aesthetic.

      Developed with all of the intelligent features seen in the original Crossbox design but with an enhanced trim, the new Crossbox Push benefits from the built-in ‘Easy-Switch’ module, to allow for simple and quick flow reversal if the feeds are plumbed the wrong way around making it an ideal choice for installers and retailers alike.

      While you’re here, why not check out the Matt White finishes in Crosswater’s MPRO Collection?

      With ease of installation and ease of use at the forefront of its design, Crossbox Push is, in our opinion, the perfect addition to the modern bathroom and ideal for lifestyle hotels that are looking to future-proof their showers.

      The Brit List Awards 2020: Shortlist announced

      The shortlist for The Brit List Awards 2020 has been announced, with more than 120 individuals and projects selected across eight categories…

      Known as the industry’s most widespread search to identify the leading designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers, The Brit List Awards 2020 has unveiled this year’s shortlist.

      The finalists, listed below, have been invited to attend The Brit List Awards’ annual award ceremony – taking place virtually on November 12. At the event, The Brit List 2020 (a publication that profiles the top 25 designers, architects and hoteliers) as well as the individual winners will be announced.

      Now in its fourth year, The Brit List Awards is Hotel Designs’ the nationwide search to find the most influential designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers operating in Britain. This year’s meticulous process began months ago when Hotel Designs opened up nominations and applications to its loyal readers.

      “Now more than ever, we should recognise and celebrate the leading individuals who are consistently and meaningfully at the forefront of British design, architecture and hospitality.” – Hamish Kilburn, editor, Hotel Designs.

      Since then, an independent panel of expert judges gathered to discuss and select this year’s individual award winners and also to confirm the 75 individuals who have made it into The Brit List 2020. “Now more than ever, we should recognise and celebrate the leading individuals who are consistently and meaningfully at the forefront of British design, architecture and hospitality,” said editor Hamish Kilburn. “Although, on record, 2020 has been one of the most challenging periods for the industry, I have faith that the individuals we have shortlisted, together, have the skills and experience to create meaningful solutions for hospitality and hotel design in the post-pandemic world.”

      Adding an extra layer to this year’s event will be the currently confirmed 2020 sponsors and partners. They are: Crosswater (Headline Partner), Hamilton Litestat (Event Partner), Duravit (Event Partner), Aqualisa (Award Partner), Hansgrohe (Award Partner), Schlüter Systems (Showcase Partner), British Institute of Interior Design (Industry Partner), HIX Event (Networking Partner).

      Free to enter, The Brit List Awards 2020 is Hotel Designs’ nationwide search to find the top designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers who are operating in Britain.

      As well as selecting the the top 25 designers, architects and hoteliers who will be profiled in The Brit List 2020, the campaign also selects individual winners of the following categories:

      • Interior Designer of the Year
      • Architect of the Year
      • Hotelier of the Year
      • Best in Tech
      • The Eco Award

      Unlike previous years, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, The Brit List Awards 2020 will take place as a virtual event on November 12, with a live winners party scheduled for January 28 2021 at Minotti London. Katy Phillips, publisher at Hotel Designs, explains: “While we would prefer to physically bridge the gap between all of our shortlisted finalists by hosting a live awards ceremony, we have made the sensible decision to carry out this year’s awards ceremony virtually,” she explains. “However, in order to ensure that we are offering the valuable networking element of our event, we look forward to welcoming the shortlisted finalists, the winners and key-industry suppliers to our live winners’ party celebration as part of MEET UP London in January 2021 at Minotti London.”

      Over the last three years, The Brit List Awards has becoming a significant event in the design, architecture and hospitality calendar, as Hamish Kilburn, editor of Hotel Designs, explains: “The Brit List Awards was born out of the concept to celebrate Britain as a major design and hospitality hub,” he says. “Arguably, it is more important this year than any other year before to mark that success while celebrating the talented individuals who are continuing to design innovative spaces on the international design scene. It is therefore my pleasure to host this year’s event, albeit virtually, and I cannot wait to personally congratulate the winners when we all meet again in January 2021 for the winners’ party.”

      If you would like to discuss various sponsorship packages available, please contact Katy Phillips via email, or call 01992 374050. Tickets to both the virtual event and the winners party will be available to secure soon.
