THG®-Paris has recently announced the Atelier Series to their bath cadre of luxury fittings, which represents a selection of new and existing signature lines re-introduced at a new price level. THG-Paris has always maintained its luxury status of all things for the bath, and these collections conserve the same manufacturing standards expected of THG Paris while offering a new opportunity for connoisseurs, specifiers and designers the accessibility to incorporate these exclusive collections in their bath designs.
A highlight of THG’s Atelier Series includes Anoa and Nano, two contemporary designs just introduced this spring. Anoa blends natural horn with brass, while Nano is a minimalistic design in brass. As in most collections from THG-Paris, Anoa and Nano are available in more than 25 finishes as well as specialty finishes. This new luxury premium price category also includes some of THG’s most prominent, well-known designs, many of which have been imitated but never replicated, including Le 11 by Alberto Pinto, Faubourg, Spirit, Charleston and 1900.
“THG-Paris has always been synonymous with luxury and craftsmanship, and the Atelier Series offers specifiers and designers a way to implement the original standout collections that are often duplicated by other manufacturers into their projects. This is the first time THG has offered these collections in this accessible category, and we are confident that our Atelier Series will result in many new THG-Paris customers for life.” – Pedro Uranga, North American director, THG-USA.
Below please find a list of collections that are part of the Atelier Series:
The Anoa collection blends natural horn with brass to create an inviting, contemporary design. The widespread lavatory collection offers a contoured, angular spout, as well as a delicate, curved high spout. Skillfully crafted by combining eye-catching metal with delicate clear or black buffalo horn, Anoa has achieved a perfect marriage of these materials with remarkable finesse. The clear horn takes on a warm, buttery, hue while the black is reminiscent of translucent dark satin. The pure material also features a multitude of color variations, making each faucet one-of-a-kind. Anoa is available in many beautiful THG finishes including chrome, nickel and gold.
The Nano collection’s quiet, minimalistic design guides the water gently with seductive refinement. With a contemporary, sleek appeal, Nano’s clean style is perfect for any bathroom design. The faucet’s minimalistic shape creates the impression of a fluid strand of polished steel contoured with a gentle curve. The Nano widespread faucet offers two spout designs (angled or curved) and is available with a choice of petite (yet pronounced) cross handles or stunning lever handles. Nano is available in a variety of gorgeous THG finishes including rhodium silver, nickel and gold. Nano brings a sense of dramatic beauty to the bath and is sure to become an enduring, modern addition to the opulent bath as well as designs with a minimalistic aesthetic.
The tradition in Charleston is timeless, exemplifying THG’s motto. With a high-polished finish, light seems to dance off the bathroom fixture with a shine that seems eternal. The Charleston comes with either a decorative smooth metal or twisted metal lever handle with a full line of beautiful accessories to complement the faucet’s subtle grace.
With impeccable form and simplicity, THG’s Le 11 was created by the late Alberto Pinto, one of France’s pre-eminent tastemakers and legendary designers. The streamlined fixture’s enigmatic name refers to a mythical address which was located near Pinto’s practice and studio in central Paris, just near the Place des Victoires. As water flows from the spout, the fitting’s waterblade forms a perfect and harmonious 90 degree angle. Elegant and unadorned, Le 11 can be specified in either cross or lever handles.
The elegant Faubourg collection by designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon, bares exquisite detail. Taking inspiration from the prized street in Paris of the same name, Faubourg, Rochon’s design for THG proves that elegance can indeed be spare. The understated but regal fixture is defined by the words Chaud (Hot) and Froid (Cold), which are elegantly inscribed in the handles. Faubourg may be specified with Bernardaud handles in black or white porcelain, as well as hand-polished metal finishes, and offers levered handles as an option.
Contemporary, and with a clean classic design, the Spirit is a welcome addition to the modern bathroom. The Spirit’s grace makes a simplistic, yet refined statement and has become a new standard in transition. The Spirit also includes a striking collection of accessories to complement the elegance of its wall mounted mixers.
The original French country faucet design, 1900 combines a high spout, fine embellishments and cast cross and lever handles in a handsome bridge construction. The signature inset pieces denote “hot” and “cold” with white porcelain handles, available as a deck- or wall-mounted versions and with either an embellished curved or straight extended spout or as a single-hole option.
