Designed with opulence and innovation, the organic Nara is the latest collection from the Australian design team at Phoenix Tapware.
February 10th, 2017
The design of Nara recalls natural, spa inspired fluidity, with a unique and beautifully crafted open spout outlet, and handle that sinks right into the body of its housing mixer. The design team at Phoenix has not only captured the essence of organic, free-flowing forms in the development of their zen-inspired tapware collection, they also incorporate two all new technologies in the Nara’s design.
The new Pivot Glide Technology® allows the handle to descend into the body of each mixer, giving Nara its fluid form and minimalist style. This collection is also the first to feature Phoenix’s new Vary-Flo Technology®, a component unique to Nara that allows for easily adjustable water flow projection on installation.
Phoenix Tapware is passionate about design and innovation and Nara’s development is no exception to this ethos. The design has been recognised internationally through the iF Design Award, and the Good Design Award, recognising the quality design, function, and aesthetics of the Nara collection. At the time they were competing against worldwide companies and Phoenix were the first in Australia to win 3 iF Design Awards in the one year.
John Hoogendoorn, Phoenix Creative Design Manager says, “Phoenix has always been very good at the exterior shape, the beauty within design. What we are going to be concentrating on for the next few years is the innovation within the products.
“We will bring you beautiful designs, with innovative technology, put together into a single product that you are going to enjoy for a long time to come.”
