California Faucets has expanded its Bel Canto single-hole lavatory faucet collection with the E3 cylinder handle, an option that eliminates the lever handle for a modern, streamlined look. A geometric juxtaposition, the Bel Canto series marries an elongated cylinder stem with a rectangular spout and lever handles. By eliminating the lever, the new cylinder handle preserves those overall design elements while modernizing and simplifying the appearance.
The cylinder handle is a small hub atop the faucet stem, identical and nearly seamless in shape. Users push the hub to operate the faucet and move it left or right to adjust the temperature. The handle can be specified in the same finish as the rest of the faucet or, for contrast, in a finish such as matte black.
Like other Bel Canto models, the faucet’s spout delivers water in a vertical sheet for a waterfall effect.
The single-hole faucet comes in two sizes: a tall 14-7/8-inch overall height or a more compact 8.5-inch overall height. Twenty-eight finishes are available, including satin nickel, burnished brass, carbon, French gold, matte black and white.
