12 - 17 April 2016

Dornbracht once again demonstrates innovation capability and design expertise at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan. A spa trail will highlight the various, forward-looking application examples for the bathroom environment, alongside an exhibition of iconic designs that document the timeless aesthetic quality of Dornbracht fittings. The new Lissé bathroom fitting and an addition to the range of the successful Supernova series will also be on show at the trade fair.

The spa trail
The focus of the Dornbracht exhibition stand at this year's Salone del Mobile is a spa trail experience, which explores the variety of ways in which water can be applied. It shows the transformation from bathroom to private spa by focusing on the individual and their needs. Different treatments can be actively used for preventive health care and to promote good health. For instance, an extending affusion pipe makes it easy to carry out beneficial Kneipp water treatments. Applications such as Sensory Sky, Horizontal Shower, Foot Bath, Comfort Shower and Leg Shower all offer exceptional experiences with water and can be revitalising, calming or relaxing. Also part of the trail is the Dornbracht Water Dispenser, that dispenses cold or boiling, filtered water as required in just a few seconds, thus satisfying the requirement for the private spa to have its own source of drinking water.  

The trail principle clearly shows how products can be flexibly arranged in accordance with individual needs and organised into specific usage zones. Accompanied by choreography of light, sound and fragrance, the trail illustrates the additional value of the different applications and inspires the user to create a configuration for their own private spa that is in tune with their personal requirements.

Iconic designs
Dornbracht is also staging an exhibition of the iconic designs Tara, MEM, Deque, IMO and Madison, as well as the highlights from last year, CL.1 and Sync. All share a modern yet timeless design language that is based on established design principles – Dornbracht's "5 Ps": proportion, precision, progressiveness, personality and performance. The interaction of these five qualities guarantees longevity for the aesthetic appeal of all Dornbracht fittings.

New products: Lissé and Supernova
The new Lissé series of fittings and an addition to the range of the Supernova series will be showcased for the first time, in front on an international audience at Salone del Mobile. Dornbracht's new Lissé series is a premium designer fitting in the entry price level segment that is geared to a quality-conscious as well as budget-conscious target group. The innovative aesthetic quality of Lissé sets the tone in the bathroom – an open invitation to enhance the interior design. A new single-lever basin mixer has been added to the successful Supernova series. The sculptural elegance of the fitting is underlined by a refined design language and an ornamental lever attached at the side.

Innovation Leadership. Design Principles. Cultural Credibility and Experience.
The exhibition stand at this year's Salone del Mobile underlines Dornbracht's innovation leadership claim and design expertise that combines with the company's long-standing cultural commitment to provide a firm foundation for the brand. As a pioneer in the industry, Dornbracht continues to set trends that have changed the bathroom, spa and kitchen forever with regard to technology, aesthetic quality and culture.

Dornbracht Private Spa
01_Private_Spa Hydrotherapy is a tried and tested element of Kneipp's health philosophy, with many positive effects on an individual's health and well being. For instance, an affusion pipe at the washbasin makes it easy to carry out invigorating arm or facial affusions. Copyright: Dornbracht, Photo: Stephan Abry

02_Private_Spa The different flow settings and pre-programmed scenarios (Relax or Vitalize) of Dornbracht's Foot Bath are ideal for beneficial stimulation of the reflex zones on the feet. Rising temperatures ease tension out of the users muscles and calm the circulation. Changes in temperature are invigorating, and when combined with the massage jets, activate the nervous system. The extending affusion pipe is usable for knee affusions - and true to the example set by Kneipp. Copyright: Dornbracht, Photo: Stephan Abry

The Big Rain panel envelops the body in big, glistening drops of water, whereas the water from the Water Fall with Pearl Stream falls gently onto the neck and shoulders. A powerful stream of water from two Water Bars massages the upper and lower back, and there is an affusion pipe to provide additional and beneficial Kneipp treatments.

"Accentuate your bathroom": The new Lissé series of fittings from Dornbracht
The essentials at a glance: The new product: the Lissé series of bathroom fittings
The special feature: a premium designer fitting in the entry-level price segment / a characteristic lever design
Product concept and design: Sieger Design

Iserlohn, March/April 2016
Dornbracht's new Lissé series is a premium designer fitting in the entry price level segment that is geared to a quality-conscious as well as budget-conscious target group. Lissé has an aesthetic quality that sets the tone in the bathroom – an open invitation to simply and easily enhance the interior design and treat yourself to something special: a "genuine Dornbracht".

The design – a hybrid design language
The appealing design language of Lissé is full of exciting contrasts: basic, clear-cut, geometric shapes and precise radii encounter curving contours and generous surfaces meet narrow edges. The lever of the fitting tilts upward and tapers, contrasting playfully with its basic, rigidly cylindrical body and flat spout. The black cover below the lever combines with the polished chrome fitting to set a different emphasis.

Extremely easy to use
The special operating mechanism is extremely easy to use and has a smooth, flowing lever movement that underlines the ornamental design language of the series. This is also reflected in the name of the fitting. The name Lissé (from the French "lissé" for "smoothed") firstly refers to the smooth operation of the lever, and secondly captures the L-shape of the body of the fitting. The acute accent (´) on the é invokes the characteristic upward tilt of the lever design.

Lissé – the product range
The Lissé series of fittings is available in polished chrome and platinum matt versions and includes around 25 products for basin, bidet, shower and bath applications. The single-lever mixer for the basin has an unusual and distinctive feature - it is available in a special, water-saving variant as an option. 21 fine, individual jets reduce the standard flow rate of 5.3 litres to 3.8 litres per minute.

A "genuine Dornbracht"
Lissé is an addition to the brand portfolio in the entry-level price segment and at the same time, has all the advantages of a "genuine Dornbracht". Like all the fittings from this premium manufacturer, Lissé typifies perfect workmanship and quality "Made in Germany". Its design language is based on the five design principles that characterise the entire Dornbracht product portfolio: proportion, precision, progressiveness, personality and performance. These form the basis of a lasting aesthetic quality, guided not by prevailing taste, but by universal design principles such as the golden mean.

Supernova: Dornbracht extends the range and enhances the series

Iserlohn, March/April 2016
By introducing a new single-lever basin mixer, Dornbracht is extending and enhancing the successful
Supernova series. The refined design language and an ornamental lever attached at the side
underline the sculptural elegance of the fitting.

The Supernova series was launched in 2009 and is a high-quality, sculptural fitting. Its numerous facets and polygonal surfaces are reminiscent of a precision-worked crystal, that keeps finding new ways to reflect light and the objects that surround it.

A refined design language and easier to use
The new single-lever basin mixer emphasises the striking geometry and elegance of the series. Refining the body and placing the lever at the side makes the fitting seem even more ornamental, at the same time as making it easier to use. The new single-lever mixer is available with or without a pop-up waste.  

Dornbracht Supernova: the scope of the series
There are more than 60 products in total in the range offered by the Supernova series. There are single-lever mixers and three-hole fittings, as well as two cascade spouts for wall and deck mounting. An extensive selection of accessories rounds off the range. The addition to the range, like all the Supernova series, is available in polished chrome and champagne finishes.

An award-winning designer fitting
The Sieger Design creation Supernova won the "Good Design Award“ (2009) and the "iF product design award“ (2010). Its futuristic and extravagant appearance sets a rather special tone, whether  in high-quality private bathrooms or in luxury hotels.
