Distinctly Abode: new taps and brochure for 2013
"Good kitchen tap design is not just about problem solving. It's about creating a beautiful and practical object that can stand out in your home but also integrate invisibly within your kitchen. It needs to deliver the right mixture of simplicity, elegance and innovation in equal measure. Despite knowing this, I cannot resist adding something personal to all my designs." Paul Illingworth - Abode Designer
The wide and varied portfolio of Abode kitchen mixer taps can now been seen, photographed in beautiful settings in a new, fully illustrated, 128 page brochure. The B5 soft cover, matte finish brochure is launched to Abode's distributor partners in readiness to go out into the marketplace to all kitchen specialist outlets, merchants and showrooms.
All taps are available in chrome and brushed nickel and for the first time ever, Abode has made it even easier for consumers to make their decision - all prices, which include VAT, are printed alongside each tap.
All Abode products use the finest components, from the smooth valve cartridges to anti-splash aerators at the end of the spout - all designed to be the best.
Abode has made selection easy for customers as the brochure is broken down into sections outlining the distinctive ranges on offer:
- Distinctly modern - contemporary taps and professional styles
- Distinctly Heritage - inspirational brassware from the classic era of British design and manufacturing
- Distinctly Steel - contemporary stainless steel tap designs. The perfect complement to steel sinks and kitchen appliances...
- Distinctly Filtered - Multi award winning Abode 'Aquifier' filtered water solutions
Four new tap concepts are joining the Distinctly Abode range, improving the aesthetics and ergonomics of the sink area: Linear Style, a tall and majestic monobloc mixer tap with swan neck offering outstanding functionality... Linear Flair, a tall mixer tap with flat planate spout and handles which stands at a leaning angle at the sink in readiness for use... Nexa - a dual handled monobloc mixer tap with pencil slim handles for ease of use... Specto - a single lever tap with elongated spout and pencil slim handle...
Darren Holliday, Director of Abode states: "Every Abode tap is designed in the UK and manufactured in Europe. Each and every detail on an Abode kitchen tap serves a purpose. Every form performs a function - beautifully. At the heart of the design, precise engineering and manufacturing quality ensure smooth, almost effortless control.
"This new, inspirational coffee table brochure will assist our customers to sell both the new and existing range of Abode taps to their customers, without difficulty".
