In case you missed it, February 20th is National Love Your Pet Day.
National Love Your Pet Day falls on Feb. 20, and is the “unofficial” national holiday set aside to give extra attention to the pets you love every day, according to NationalDayCalender.com. Continue reading “Love Your Pet Day”
We live in a designed world and we believe everybody deserves good design. The ongoing collaboration between design engineers and customers has changed the course of appliance design for us as a company and for those who use our products day in and day out.
Fisher & Paykel are striving to set themselves apart from the competition with their ActiveSmart refrigeration technology.
ActiveSmart consists of a microprocessor, interior temperature sensors, independently controlled variable speed fans and multiple air ducts. The microprocessor controls how the refrigerator operates based on changing patterns of use. The sensors continuously send information to the microprocessor, which analyses and adjusts the fan speed and compressor operations accordingly to deliver a consistent and stable temperature. Continuous feedback means that ActiveSmart has the ability to respond to intelligently adapt to daily use to help save energy, cooling and defrosting only when they need to without compromising on food care.
Taking the idea of the flexible DishDrawer and ActiveSmart refrigeration technology, Fisher & Paykel developed the CoolDrawer, a multi-temperature drawer-based fridge. It can be placed anywhere in the kitchen or home and the CoolDrawer provides five temperature settings to deliver total flexibility – fridge, freezer, chill, pantry and wine mode.
One of the worst things about replacing a refrigerator is waiting for he new unit to cool to the desired temperature. Fisher & Paykel’s Rapid Chill feature is very convenient. Independent variable-speed fans control airflow through multiple air ducts to all compartment as well as rapid chill and freezing to ensure food safety and maintain food quality.
Fisher & Paykel built-in appliances are designed to install flush with existing cabinet openings – provided you have 25″ of depth and 72″ of height. The depth of the newly designed refrigerators is 23.75″ without the door panel. This shorter design might prove to be easier to work with than other 84″ models but some families may find the 16.8 cu. ft. (5.1 freezer, 11.7 refrigerator) of storage inadequate for their needs.
This weekend Wetsyle, a Montreal-based manufacturer of premium bath furnishings, is introducing their new W2 brand at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).
“W2 is a new brand of products that is simplified in design, shape and fabrication. It is available at a more modest price point to reach a broader audience of people passionate about beautiful design.” – Mark Wolinsky, Wetstyle president
The W2 brand will include 3 free-standing tubs, 2 of which are designed to fit within the footprint of a traditional soaking tub alcove 60″ long x 30″ deep. This is such great news for remodelers who struggle to find stylish tubs under 60″ in length. Another great feature I like about the tubs is the hidden overflow drain.
The new tubs are made by hand with WETMAR BIO, a proprietary stone composite material that is slip resistant with natural insulating properties.
The W2 Wave Tub is inspired by a gently rolling ocean wave. The elegant lines of this tub will work in both Transitional and Contemporary Bathrooms.
The W2 Straight Tub features tapered lines and rounded corners for a more modern profile.
The W2 Cloud Tub, the largest of the three, has a delicately rolled rim and beautiful lines that give it a timeless transitional look. Incorporating the optional base transforms this tub into a traditional statement piece.
