Emotional design and innovative comfort solutions are the hallmarks of the new PuraVida line from Hansgrohe. Together with its long-term development partner Phoenix Design, the sanitation specialist has created a mixers and showerhead line that stands out with its sensual lines and intuitive functionality, and which, apart from being fashioned in pure chrome, offers a new and unusual surface option: the color combination chrome-white, to symbolize purity, lightness and beauty. “Bathrooms are increasingly regarded as a living space,” explains Tom Schönherr, one of the Managing Directors of Phoenix Design, together with Andreas Haug. This is why Hansgrohe PuraVida was created: “a sensual ‘comprehensible’, poetic design full of emotion and joie de vivre.” The two-tone look is achieved by combining white enamel with shiny chrome. The two different material surfaces unite in one and the same element, thus bringing the two-materials principle into the bathroom. An innovative manufacturing process, whereby chrome plating is followed by a high-quality powder coating, makes it possible to combine the two surfaces seamlessly and accurately. Apart from giving a pleasant feel, the new manufacturing process also results in hard-wearing, easy-to-clean surfaces.
