Studio S Matte Black Bathroom Faucets and Accessories by American Standard

Home > Winners > #69169


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Studio S Matte Black

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bathroom Faucets and Accessories

INSPIRATION:
The cool, modern look of urban spaces inspired the design of the Studio S Collection. This influence is apparent in the minimalist faucet designs and sleek black color in this collection: single-lever and vessel faucets showcase clean design lines with a unique nested handle design that eliminates the traditional gap when in the open position. The high-arc Studio S widespread faucet is available in two handle options: refined lever handles or a modern knob design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Studio S bath and shower faucets and accessories showcase a fashion-forward geometric silhouette juxtaposed with minimalistic surface details. Bathroom sink faucet configurations include monoblock, widespread and vessel faucet configurations. Showering options include Pressure Balance and Thermostatic valve options, diverter trims, and a drenching 8-inch rain showerhead. Rounding out the collection are accessories including towel bars, a towel ring, robe hook and pivoting toilet paper holder.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Designed to offer water savings without sacrificing performance, Studio S sink faucets incorporate pressure-compensating aerators for a strong water flow while using a water-conserving 1.2 gallons per minute (gpm). These WaterSense-certified bathroom sink faucets save 45 percent more water than standard 2.2 gpm models. The 8-inch rain shower head is also available in a 1.8 gpm version, which is WaterSense-certified and provides up to 30 percent water savings compared to a 2.5 gpm shower head.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design for the Studio S bathroom faucets took 12 months to complete. The products were designed at the Company’s industrial design center in Piscataway, New Jersey.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The faucets are made of lead-free brass and feature ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of drip-free performance. They incorporate patented, recessed handle operation on the monoblock and vessel faucets to maintain their sleek, elegant style. SpeedConnect drain technology provides fast installation and trouble-free operation for the life of the faucet.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Monoblock faucet: 32mm W x 186mm D x 178mm H Vessel faucet: 32mm W x 140mm D x 343mm H Widespread lever faucet: 340mm W x 126mm D x 220mm H

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Our challenge was to create a line of fittings that would highlight contemporary design without the hard edges and strict geometry commonly seen in European designs. The goal was to incorporate clean, sleek shapes that would express the flow of water. Also, on the single handle faucet, the Company had to develop a new mechanism that hides the connection between the handle and the valve in order to keep the shape seamless and elegant, with the smallest gaps possible between parts.
