A Singular Sensation:
CHICAGO, KITCHEN/BATH INDUSTRY SHOW (April 20, 2006) — Is anything more minimalist than one? A single object. A single statement. One is also characterized by unity–single objects combining to make one statement, as in One™, a new faucet collection from American Standard.
The unique contemporary styling of One speaks to the minimalist’s tastes. Simple and spare like the number one, One adds nicely to numbers of different design environments.
Together the wide array of products including vessel faucets, wall-mounted fittings and bidet faucets create a linear, one-of-a-kind bath.
“One captures the true essence of contemporary European-inspired style with sleek, straightforward lines,’’ says Gray Uhl, design director for American Standard. “Long and lean, but solid with subtle curves in all the right places, One appeals to consumers interested in making a singular minimalist design statement with a diverse line.”
For bathroom sinks, One is actually many. There is a choice of a single-control or a two-handle widespread for lavatories, and three choices for vessel sinks including a monoblock and two wall-mount styles, one-handle and two-handle.
One’s minimalist good looks are further multiplied in a showerhead, a bath and shower faucet, a deck-mount tub filler and a two-handle bidet design.
One is available in a Polished Chrome or Satin Nickel finish and lists from $250 for a single handle lavatory faucet to $440 for a deck-mount tub filler and shower products.
The collection’s beautiful finishes are also easier to keep clean because EverClean™, American Standard’s patented permanent protective finish, is integrated into the faucet surface during the manufacturing process. One wipe effortlessly removes dried water spots and other grime from EverClean treated products. EverClean is offered on American Standard’s most popular bathroom and kitchen sink faucets.
All American Standard faucets have ceramic disc valves, the state-of-the-art, drip-free technology pioneered by American Standard and backed by a lifetime guarantee. For more information on One or other American Standard products, call (800) 899-2614 or visit www.americanstandard-us.com.
