KWC ONO and KWC AVA Wall-Mounted Bath Faucets

Platinum Award
2015
Designed for both contemporary and transitional décors, KWC AVA and KWC ONO Wall-Mounted Bath Faucets feature single-handle operation for a cleaner look and a more convenient operation. The slim contours of both faucets house the latest technology, including:• a ceramic disc cartridge, for more precise control of flow and temperature;• an optional temperature limiter to avoid accidental scalding; and • a fully integrated Neoperl ® Caché® aerator, for a water-saving flow rate of 1.5 gpm (gallons per minute) — a 32 percent savings over conventional 2.2 gpm models, but without sacrifice to user comfort. Both faucets are currently undergoing testing that, when concluded, should enable them to earn the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense label.KWC AVALike the rest of the KWC AVA Bath series, the wall-mounted faucet offers slender geometric forms and surfaces that make a striking impression. Among the many captivating features of the KWC AVA Wall-mounted Bath Faucets are their flat handles, each based on a unique and innovative lever-operating principle with a concealed lifting mechanism. The handle lifts and turns in a single movement, delivering a completely new and different feel to activating a faucet: effortless, harmonious, and logical.The comprehensive KWC AVA Bath collection also encompasses a tall basin faucet for vessel sinks, as well as a bathtub spout, overhead showers, a hand shower and a sliding wall bar; shower trim kits for either thermostatic and pressure balance valve applications; and an assortment of rough-in components and complementary accessories.KWC ONOThe KWC ONO Wall-Mounted Bath Faucet is a masterpiece of minimalism, with delicate design, high-quality materials and craftsmanship reflected in every detail.Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the faucet is its incredibly slim, but super-strong operating lever — delicate to the eye and to the touch, but made of surgical-grade, hardened stainless steel to withstand years of rugged usage. Operating directly on the ceramic disc cartridge inside the faucet, the lever moves within a sealed link, minimizing the number of joints and edges that could trap dirt and undercut appearance and performance.As with the KWC AVA Bath series, the KWC ONO Bath collection includes lavatory faucets; a bathtub spout; overhead showers, a hand shower and a sliding wall bar; shower trim kits for either thermostatic and pressure balance valve applications; and an assortment of rough-in components and complementary accessories. Earlier this year, KWC also unveiled a freestanding tub filler for the KWC ONO Bath collection.

Pricing

All pricing for the new, wall-mounted faucets is still tentative at this pre-launch stage:

• The KWC AVA Wall-Mounted Bath Faucet will list for approximately $580 in a chrome finish (available this fall) and approximately $860 in KWC’s proprietary, “splendure” stainless steel finish (available late 2014).

• The KWC ONO Wall-Mounted Bath Faucet will list for approximately $950 in chrome (available this fall) and approximately $1,420 in “splendure” (available late 2014).

Note: Each faucet requires a separately sold (approximately $200 list price) rough-in necessary for concealed installation.

Notes

Varieties in vessel and recessed sinks and their mounting options have grown substantially in recent years, notes Darryl Jones, Western Regional Sales Manager. “Wall-mounted faucets allow the user to adjust the height of the spout to match her sink choice, providing options beyond deck-mounted, pillar faucets, while adding a modern touch to the traditional basin.”
