FIRST PLACE Kitchen Faucet Has Sleek Design The sophisticated design of GRAFF's Sospiro Kitch- en Faucet earned it top honors in the water delivery category. Available in a sin- gle-hole and bridge version, both faucets feature two sleek cylindrical levers for operation. The single-hole faucet sports a pull-down spray head with dual-func- tion spray and stream water flow, while the contem- porary bridge design eliminates the traditional third post for a clean look. Sospiro is available with a matching independent side spray with a progressive valve that controls hot- and-cold and on-and-off systems. Circle No. 193 on Product Card Water Delivery Accessory HONORABLE MENTION Faucet Updates Classic Look The Vaia line of bath faucets from Dornbracht balances traditional and contemporary features for a classic yet modern look. A choice of a functional lever or classic cross handle pairs well with the curved spout and soft, conical shape. Precise craftsmanship is shown throughout, from the integrated aerator to the distinct handle design. Circle No. 194 on Product Card HONORABLE MENTION Kitchen Faucet Reaches Out Beauty meets precise innovation in KWC's Luna-E kitchen faucet. Mi- cro-spray technology directs water exactly where it's needed, while exten- sive swivel ranges and extra-long hoses reach every inch of the sink surface. The pull-out spray hose includes a jetclean faceplate that extends nearly 24", mak- ing it virtually self-cleaning. The faucet also showcases water-saving flow-rates. Circle No. 195 on Product Card FIRST PLACE Linear Drain Shower System Provides Pre-Waterproofed Design The USG Durock Brand-Infinity Drain Shower System offers a waterproofed, linear drain shower system that's easier and faster to install than traditional shower construction, according to the company. The shower system integrates a high-performance, pre-waterproofed, pre-pitched floor and wallboard with decorative linear drains from Infinity Drain. The waterproofing fabric is pre-faced on the floor and wallboard, which saves time, labor and human error, the firm adds. Circle No. 196 on Product Card HONORABLE MENTION Steam Shower Control Blends Look MrSteam's iSteam3 Shower Control's entire face is created from one sheet of glass that seamlessly integrates with the pre- cision CNC edge of the aluminum housing. The control is only 1/8" thick, giving the appearance that it is almost flush with the wall. Features including temperature, duration, aromatherapy, chromatherapy and music are hidden until the user needs them. Circle No. 197 on Product Card FIRST PLACE Hardware Reduces Noise SilentPac's acoustically engineered door hard- ware enables silent lever-return dampening, softening noise from opening and closing doors, ultimately resulting in more peaceful and quiet environments. Available from Accurate Lock and Hardware, the SilentPac Lever Dampening Disc – when paired with the SilentPac 9100Q Quiet Mortise Lock – can achieve a 16 times reduction in decibel levels, according to the firm. The hardware is compatible with most other brands' hardware for maximum flexibility. Circle No. 198 on Product Card Hardware January 2018 • KitchenBathDesign.com 101
