Modern Perfection Victoria + Albert Taps Into European Design With Their New Tubo Faucet Collection
Freestanding bath specialist Victoria Albert expands their product offering with the introduction of Tubo - a NEW collection of faucets that are sleek and modern and 100% European. A perfect complement to the Victoria + Albert Premium range of contemporary tubs and basins.
Drawing its name from the Italian word for pipe, the Tubo Collection captures all the beauty of European design. Formed by a single elegant tube curved at 90 degrees, the faucet offers a dramatic profile with a sleek, urbane feel that is easily at home in the most modern of settings. A smooth single lever controls both water flow and temperature and can be installed at any angle for right- or left-handed use. When in use, water flows out of the graceful arch in high style, creating an organic, almost sculptural effect.
The Tubo Collection features three faucet models suitable for both tubs and basins, each offered in chrome or brushed nickel finishes. The freestanding tub filler with handheld shower attachment called the Tubo T10, stands nearly 34Ă˘â‚¬Âť tall with a retail price that starts at $2,200. The Tubo T11 is a waterfall tub filler also with a handheld shower. Water flows from the fitting in a stunning 9" wide blade, and the spout can be rotated to aim the stream horizontally to form an arching cascade. Low slung and elegantly unobtrusive, the design is ideal for use with Victoria + AlbertĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s streamlined Napoli tub. Retail prices start at $2,600. Complete the look with the Tubo T12 basin faucet, a scaled-down version of its larger cousins that is perfect for a vessel-style sink. Priced at $990, the basin faucet features a fixed height of 12 1/4Ă˘â‚¬Âť.
