A bathing experience with grandeur and charm
A symbol of the 'Belle Epoque', the Delphi bathtub reflects the splendour and the luxurious way of the life enjoyed by the wealthy towards the end of the 19th century. The softly rounded form of the bathtub, borne on lion's feet, provides even today a bathing experience described by German manufacturer Jörger as being full of grandeur.
"Lovers of a timeless bathing ambience with historical flair will be drawn to the company's classical series, which as well as Delphi, includes Aphrodite, Muschel, Palazzo Crystal, Florale, Lotos, Minarett, Ramses, Albano, Serie 1909 and Delphi-Deco, which we have enhanced with exceptional fittings," says the company.
The system consists of a bath tap and shower attachment and includes a standpipe. The head and hand fittings - including mount - can be arranged individually. The standpipe system is offered with an extension of 30 cm and 54 cm, facilitating the flexible placement of the bathtub, parallel to the wall or freestanding in the bathroom.
All components are created from high-quality brass. Waterflow and temperature are regulated by sophisticated ceramic headparts. All this, including the lion's feet, are supplied finished in chrome, gold, bronze, platinum, platinum matte, sunshine or sunshine matte.
Alongside the washbasin, the shower and bathtub fixtures, each collection comes with a range of matching accessories to further enhance the style of the bathroom and highlight the detail of the design. All the ranges combine nostalgic charm, craftsmanship and modern functionality.
The bathtub, made of a white, high-quality acrylic composite, has a soft, warm feel -and, when compared to a cast iron bathtub, will maintain a pleasant water temperature for a longer period. It is available in the sizes 170 x 80 cm and 176 x 80 cm. Its easy care format and durability ensure it fulfils the requirements of today's discerning user.
Alongside these classical ranges, Jörger is also well known for modern design collections, which distinguish themselves through straight lines and clear-cut body forms.
Based in Mannheim, Jörger Armaturen- und Accessoires-Fabrik GmbH is an internationally operating, major German manufacturer known not only for its high quality taps but also its accessories which match the identity of the fittings. Every item is cast, ground and polished by hand to ensure that the highest standards can be guaranteed.
Jörger also offers a wide range of washstands and several design furniture pieces for bathrooms. "Materials such as vitreous china, wood, glass or stainless steel are created to perfectly match the taps and accessories for coordinated design where form and function merge harmoniously and creative ideas blossom into bathroom aesthetics!" says the manufacturer.
