Jason Wu for Brizo Collection launched
Brizo, a premium line of faucets by Delta Faucet, in collaboration with fashion designer Jason Wu has introduced the Jason Wu for Brizo Collection. The collection reinforces the position of the Brizo brand as fashion forward and innovative, and it marks the debut of Wu into the world of interior design.
“When the Brizo brand was first partnered with Jason Wu, we set out to prove fashion can be expressed outside the runway, as it’s also a personal expression of oneself in the home,” said Brian Nobbe, director of the Brizo brand.
“The Jason Wu for Brizo Collection delivers a new level of luxury for the home bath and we are excited to see how consumers and design professionals react to the collection’s unique juxtaposition of ultra-modern clean lines and ornamentation.”
As a designer, Wu has always been driven by a curiosity to learn about construction, perfecting every detail and merging contrasting influences into his designs. The new collection combines sleek Scandinavian design and intricate baroque detailing.
A matte black finish brings a sense of elegance to the collection and is paired with cool polished chrome or soft brushed nickel on a number of accessory pieces to coordinate seamlessly into any space. Wu wanted to create a complete powder room suite, a vision which led to the addition of several pieces not typically found in Brizo collections, including a wastebasket, free-standing soap pump, soap dish, and drawer knobs and pulls. The silhouette of a baroque-inspired flower is subtly woven throughout, providing a sense of cohesive integrity.
“Much like fashion accessories help pull together an outfit, these added pieces complete the look of the home bathroom, allowing home-owners to infuse the collection’s style throughout the space to create one seamless, integrated design,” said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Brizo products.
At the centre of the collection is a faucet unlike any other. Named for mythology’s Norse god of wisdom and magic, the Jason Wu for Brizo Odin faucet features a unique and unexpected rotating handle motion to emphasise the collection’s modern and seamless design. Punctuated by Wu’s signature Miss Wu owl emblem on the tip of the handle, this faucet is truly the collection’s showpiece.
The faucet is equipped with SmartTouchPlus technology, which allows users to start and stop the flow of water with a simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle of the faucet. For a more intuitive experience, its hands-free mode activates the flow of water when hands are anywhere within four inches of the faucet.
Debuting on the new faucet is an exclusive temperature control technology featuring a new temperature sensing indicator. An LED light display built into the base of the faucet uses shades of light, from blue to magenta to red, to indicate actual water temperature. The electronic valve built into the lavatory faucet also monitors the mixture of hot and cold water to help provide a consistent temperature for the user, while its high temperature limit stop offers an added degree of safety. Flowing at 5.6 litres per minute, the Jason Wu for Brizo Odin faucet meets WaterSense standards. Additionally, water does not come in contact with metal surfaces once inside the faucet.
