3D-Printed Metal Faucets

These New GROHE Faucets Have a Modern, Angular Aesthetic

— March 27, 2019 — Art & Design
The Allure Brilliant Icon 3D and Atrio Icon 3D GROHE faucets have been unveiled as two of over 500 new products from the brand that were shown off at the ISH 2019 trade show in Frankfurt, Germany. Boasting angular aesthetics, the faucets are each intended to bring about an ultra-modern water access experience in the bathroom that is achieved using a metal 3D printing procedure. Each of the faucets are hand-finished to ensure the utmost attention to detail and are part of the shift towards digital manufacturing methods for more ornate, futuristic final products.

CEO of GROHE AG Michael Rauterkus spoke on the new Allure Brilliant Icon 3D and Atrio Icon 3D GROHE faucets saying, "GROHE is shaping the future of water, in terms of design and innovation, both analogue and digital, giving our customers and our consumers the building blocks they need to harness the power and the beauty of water – as a tailored experience wherever they enjoy water."
