Hansgrohe launched the Metropol collection by Phoenix Design. Characterized by a cube-shaped body with geometrical contours and rectangular lines, the collection includes three different lavatory faucet heights, as well as different handles, spout heights and configurations. Faucet handles include a flat-lever handle, loop handle, or integrated Select technology, which allows for water to be turned on and off with the push of a button. The collection also includes coordinating freestanding single-hole tub fillers, as well as Roman tub trims.
All three single-hole faucet models offer a low-flow rate of 1.2 GPM. The Metropol 110 single-hole faucet allows for enough space to meet everyday needs, while the Metropol 260 single hole faucet offers extra space at the sink. The Metropol 230 single-hole faucet has side handle and swiveling spout that can be moved to the side before or after use, thus freeing the sink for other purposes. The Metropol 100 single-hole faucet is suited for use with small-scale sinks or powder rooms. Meanwhile, the Metropol 225 is a wall-mounted single handle faucet trim.
The entire faucet collection comes with Hansgrohe’s QuickClean feature, meaning that dirt and limescale can be rubbed off. Available finishes include chrome and brushed nickel.
The entire Metropol lavatory range integrates Hansgrohe’s EcoRight feature, resulting in a low flow rate of 1.2 GPM. EcoRight products employ Hansgrohe’s air injection technology, which mixes air with water for a more voluminous spray.
New Metropol fittings for the tub are available to complement the new lavatory faucets. This assortment includes three- and four-hole roman tub spout trims, freestanding tub fillers, and tub spouts. The design combines clean-cut edges with gleaming surfaces. The body of the fittings is straight edged, widening into a larger square footprint at the base. The models use the QuickClean feature, and finishes include chrome and brushed nickel.
