VASCO: RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT WITH SUSTAINABLE HEATING

 

The VASCO name is synonymous with sustainability, having won a number of design awards for their 100% recycled, energy efficient, aluminium radiators.  The production of raw aluminium is both extremely expensive and damaging to the environment, so VASCO consciously opts to only produce their radiators from recycled aluminium, which ensures their finished product can be smelted down and re-used.

VASCO was the first manufacturer to move towards a 100% sustainable product with the guarantee of optimum recycling without the loss of quality.   All VASCO’s aluminium radiators are produced using 100% recycled material which can be anything from aluminium drinks cans to scrap, examples include Bryce, Beams and ONI.

Red Dot Award for Duravit C.1 tap series and Luv bathroom range

 

Both the Duravit C.1 tap series and Luv, the complete bathroom range have received the 2018 “Red Dot” award for outstanding design.

The C.1 design range by Kurt Merki Jr. perfectly reflects Duravit’s design language. The ergonomic handle with a recess underneath is comfortable to hold and permits precise operation.

The unusual design of Luv by Danish designer Cecilie Manz combines Nordic purism and timeless, emotional elegance. Gentle forms follow a stringent geometry. The selection of materials and colours is testament to her sense for touch and nuances.

The Red Dot award for “Product Design”, which can trace its origins back to 1955, seeks out each year’s best products. In 2018 designers and manufacturers from 59 nations entered more than 6,300 objects in the competition. True to the motto “in search of good design and innovation”, a jury – around 40 strong – evaluated the products individually as originals. The expert committee only awards the internationally renowned quality seal to products with an impressively high design quality and that satisfy stringent evaluation criteria.

The bathroom is a place where we often feel the need for structure and clarity. Where hygiene and cleanliness play a vital role, the colour white not only creates a brighter room but also a feeling of space. The positive qualities of pure white can be multiplied by overlaying tone on tone: a matt DuraSolid bathtub, glistening DuraCeram ceramics, and a white vanity unit can produce a harmonious light ambience. Towels or other accessories, such as patterned glass items, can generate interesting contrasts.
