Innovative Belgian Faucet Design

Andrew, designed by Co.Studio, manufactured by rvb®

Antwerpen, Belgium, 2017-07-04 - 

Andrew is a total collection of understated, integrated faucet solutions, adapted to various situations. The range consists of different models for surface or wall mounting. Available for both, the bathroom and the kitchen. Finishes in chrome, matte black, matte nickel and colours on request such as matt blue and bronze. Always characterized by a purity of form and rvb®’s reliable quality standard.

 

Pure as water

Andrew faucets are defined by a strong, minimalist form. The handle is completely integrated into the shape of the tap, which is not just a functional feature but ultimately determines the purity of its form as well. Flow control is instinctive and ergonomic. The studio's design language translates into timeless pieces that are always stripped back to their essence, freed from all superfluous elements. With its understated allure, Andrew represents the experience of water in its very essence.

 

“Andrew was born from the sense that something was lacking in our search for a contemporary line of taps full of character for our projects. As designers, we have a clear image of the lightness and purity we want. The existing possibilities did not respond to our needs. Working closely with rvb®, we were able to make our wishes a reality”, Co.Studio’s Christian Van Suetendael explains.

 

When the designers presented the first sketches and models of the Andrew collection, rvb®  was immediately seduced by the combination of originality and refinement in the style. Right from the start, the exacting requirements of the project designers inspired rvb®’s R&D team, who are well accustomed to technological challenges. As Louis-Philippe Gillieaux, the project manager, makes clear, “the difficulty lay in integrating complex mechanisms into a product that was both sensitive and highly ergonomic, whilst respecting our brand’s high reliability standards and ensuring easy installation for professionals.”

 

The design was awarded with 2017 European Product Design Award. Gold winner in the category Bathroom fittings/appliances. Gold winner in the category Kitchen Appliances.


Co.Studio, founded in Antwerp in 1998, specializes in interior design and architecture with the associated product design. The designers aim for strong, timeless pieces with a sophisticated and detailed image, always reduced to their pure essence. This intention is encapsulated in every design created by the duo Christian van Suetendael and Gert van den Steen.
