Phoenix Tapware strikes the ideal balance between form and function
June 26th, 2015
One of the many joys of visiting or living in Melbourne city is of course the café culture, and with it come the spectacularly creative interior and architectural designs from some of our leading design firms. Each new café is attempting to out-do the last – a move to make them the latest hot-spot; the place people see in photos and say “I have just got to go there!” And what do you know, the more attractive the space; the more photogenic and thus, the more it is shared on social media. Cafés are no longer just a chair, a table and a nice cup of coffee, they’re an environment, a feeling and a haven. It’s a known fact though, that no matter how good the food, the coffee, the colour palette or the cushiony seating – people always remember their washroom experience.
Well-designed bathrooms leave patrons with a lasting impression. Clean, easy to find and use spaces are just as important now as the need for stylish bathroom products, and that’s where Phoenix Tapware comes in. At Phoenix, tapware is treated as the perfect balance between form and function. Their products offer a sense of style and elegance to a space, giving it that extra push in the direction of creating something special for the patron’s experience.
