While for the most part those who use mixers and tapware (i.e. all of us) are satisfied with their functionality and appearance, for those tasked with installing and maintaining them, they have long been the source of disruption and frustration.
Traditional mixer bodies cause plumbers a range of problems. Because of the nature of their component parts and installation methods, tapware selection must be locked in very early in the construction process, the installation process for multi-res is inefficient and time consuming, design decisions are inflexible, and tapware changes are unviable once tiling is complete. On top of that, even years after the project is complete, changing tapware is time-consuming and costly.
Now, with the release of the latest mixer technology, all that has changed. Featuring innovations in terms of componentry, such products stand to benefit not only plumbers but also builders, architects, and consumers.
This CPD Live identifies these new technologies, explains how they differ from traditional tapware, and explains how to best incorporate them into architectural projects.

According to Le Corbusier, the struggle for it underpins the history of architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright described it as a “beautifier of buildings”. And Motoko Ishii famously equated it to life itself. Indispensable, life-affirming and metamorphic, light underpins all architectural and design efforts.
