Methven launches new showering and tapware collection: design-led Waipori collection delivers indulgent showering while saving water
Global designer and manufacturer of premium showers and tapware, Methven UK, has launched a new collection which delivers optimum performance alongside key water-saving features.
The Waipori collection, which translates from Maori as 'Dark Water', includes showerheads, handsets and tapware and boasts a modern, sleek design in a stylish chrome finish.
Waipori showers feature Methven's unique Satinjet technology, which uses twin-jets of water that collide, producing thousands of tiny droplets that feel soft enough for the face, yet invigorating enough for your entire body. A Satinjet shower is optimised at just nine litres per minute allowing you to shower at lower water flow rates while still providing a wonderful sensory and luxurious experience.
The showering range includes a showerhead and a single function handset.
The Waipori tap collection is characterised by tapering lines, subtly rounded faces and distinctive arcs and all the products have dezincification resistant (DR) brass bodies. The range includes a basin mixer, a three-hole deck mounted basin mixer, a three-hole deck mounted bath mixer and a deck swivel bath spout.
"Our Waipori collection underlines our commitment to producing high-end, beautifully designed products that offer a luxurious showering and bathing experience but with an eye on water saving features," says Steve Lee, CEO Methven UK. It is also one of the new ranges to feature the next generation Satinjet technology."
Established in New Zealand in 1886, Methven - with offices in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, the UAE and the Far East - has earned a deserved reputation across its international customer base for designing and manufacturing innovative, high quality, and water and energy efficient products.
Methven acquired Deva in July 2007 and has since set about introducing some of its award winning Satinjet range of water and energy saving showers to the UK and Irish markets, with great success. Since their launch, the Satinjet Awatea, Kiri and Tahi designs have won a total of four British awards for their water and energy saving credentials, design and innovation.
With more than 105 employees, field based customer support and specification teams, Methven UK delivers the latest styles of showers, tapware and accessories, next day - nationwide.
