When Brizo faucets had me in New York last September, I was granted a rare glimpse into the world of the fixtures they have in development. I took a vow of silence of course and I've been dying to start talking about some of the stuff they are working on. One collection in particular left me giddy in anticipation. I know, I know, it's a faucet; but I'm serious about the giddiness.
The Virage is now in production and will start shipping in January, 2010. You saw it here first gang.
Rarely does a fixture series come along that's truly different, but the Virage is one such collection. They are stunning, elegantly simple but impossible to overlook. What I love about Virage too is that it's not tied to any one particular style. A Virage faucet would be as at home in a contemporary design as it would a traditional one. That is a rare attribute, and components that can pull off that balancing act tend to last and resist looking dated.
The Virage is a series, like everything Brizo offers. What that means is that there are lavatory faucets, shower fixtures, tub fillers, flush handles, accessories and more that all share the same overriding design. I'll get more photographs of the Virage as they become available, but in the meantime, what do you think? Is this a style you'd ever consider? Talk to me.
