Following the successful launch of its stunning Aio shower range, Methven, a global designer and manufacturer of premium bath fixtures, has extended the collection with the addition of complementary vanity faucets that will be on display this month at 100% Design during the London Design Festival.
A triumph of imagination, the Methven Aio Aurajet shower defies convention with its intriguing minimalist appearance and exclusively engineered Aurajet technology.
Our engineers designed the new halo-shaped shower head so that hidden nozzles generate individual jets of water that collide against precisely angled surfaces, creating a stunning fan of luxuriously dense droplets,” – Methven Group CEO, David Banfield.
Methven teamed up with Pantone to incorporate limited edition shower heads in stylish colors. Methven promises to update the colors each year. The current offering includes Marsala, Pantone’s color of the year for 2015; Classic Blue and Midnight.
The new faucet range is manufactured from Eco Brass® – a revolutionary high quality, high strength material which is lead and heavy metal free, providing enhanced corrosion resistance and therefore preserves water quality.
The Aio basin faucet is characterized by sophisticated simplicity, with an integrated lever and body design. The faucet mixer features a directional aerator, which streamlines the water flow and minimizes splash back.
The Aio collection also includes a wall-mounted tub spout.

ALUSID LTD is a new UK based company, manufacturing an exciting range of unique, highly sustainable interior and exterior architectural surface materials.
ALUSID is a spin-off company from the Silicate Research Unit of University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
AluSiD was the name given to launch prototype examples of the ‘Eco-material’ David and Dr Alasdair Bremner had been developing as part of the AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded research project called ‘The Aesthetic of Waste”. The research project examines mineral waste as a potential alternative to traditional construction materials.
ALUSID will be launching its first product range at 100% Design 2015 in London this September.
Our products made from 95%-100% recycled waste glass and ceramic offer complete control of colour, tone and texture, creating a genuinely sustainable alternative to imported natural stone products.
Laurence van Seventer, a Dutch designer and founder of Lolo Palazzo is a creative frontrunner in industrial design who is innovative in welding metal with recycled bicycles, car parts and other discarded metal.
From her Hague Studio, Laurence van Seventer creates chandeliers that remind me a bit of the Atlantis chandelier from Barlas Baylar Lighting. Her larger chandeliers can incorporate as many as 600 upcycled bicycle chains and weigh 275 pounds.
Her designs begin organically and she does not know when she begins a piece what outcome it will have. In Laurence’s view, we live in a world that has to involve recycling. As an artist she likes the contrast between soft and industrial materials. Playing with the lighting levels also creates an added element of light play and drama to her lighting sculptures.
The Ballroom Blitz chandelier was recently featured at Design London’s Superbrands Design Festival this past fall. Many of Laurence’s chandelier designs can be found hanging in prestigious hotels around the world.
Laurence is currently working on a new collection called ‘Killing me Softly’, which is a combination of recycled steel and recycled; in collaboration with Label Mademoiselle Cecile.
In the lamp collection Laurence is showcasing more of her welding and plasma cutting skills. The lamp bases are constructed from motor bike parts.
In addition to lighting, Lolo Palazzo also produces mirrors, and sculptural pieces that range from flower bouquets to animal sculptures.
I’ve heard that Tent London and Super Brands were even bigger and better shows this year. I always tend to gravitate toward the lighting exhibitors. It would have been nice to see the Lolo Palazzo pieces in person.
