Design faucet VAIA – elegant and harmonious

Its basic design exudes the spirit of a classical fitting, yet the slender lines of the open silhouette anchor the series firmly in the present. VAIA is entirely in the here and now. Completely in balance.

Graceful. Delicate. Balanced.


Characteristic features of VAIA include its soft radii, refined silhouette and flowing transitions. Its filigree spout draws on a classic form for elegant bathroom fittings and translates into a new, open design.


Whether with cross or lever handles, VAIA brings together geometric and organic contours in a graceful whole.


VAIA creates moments of harmony in a well-balanced play of contrasts.

The various materials radiate a contemplative, almost mystical warmth, depending on how the light falls.

Transitional Style

Transitional Style is notable for its experimental use of materials, textures, forms and colors.

Neri & Hu understand the idea of Transitional Style in terms of architecture: the bathroom as a room in which to linger a while, a room for regeneration, a source of energy and a place of transition.


“The courtyard house is a house that is focused inward: There are no outside walls or windows, all light comes in from the opening at the top.”


The washstand as a central, communicative meeting place. This gives rise to some important resonances for bathroom architecture.


Water is for more than just physical cleansing to Neri & Hu, it represents emotional healing as well.


The courtyard house is a location for treasuring water as an essential element of life.

Rafael de Cárdenas’ interpretation of Transitional Style is distinguished, in particular, through the unusual shape of the room. Chapel-like niches with an almost sacred momentum are created from the gentle, curved S-shape of the floor plan.

The arches connecting the different zones strongly express this theme.

The transparent dome which admits natural light, literally keeps the architecture open to the recurring rhythm of day and night.

Traditional elegance and new concepts are blended in extravagant design.

Gentle Transitions

VAIA in Brushed Champagne (22kt gold) meets gentle transitions. The elegant finish is embedded in a harmonious interplay of natural materials and colors.

Natural Balance

Two-tone brick creates a balanced interplay of textures. It's complemented by VAIA in Brushed Dark Platinum, soft silk, and textured wood - creating an exciting experience.

Creative diversity - VAIA surfaces

The use of various finishes enables VAIA to blend into many different contemporary interiors: in both traditional and modern-minimalistic bathroom architectures as well as those combining elements of different styles.
