THG Debuts Downtown Chic Style for the Bath

THG-Paris is proud to announce the Downtown Collection, a selection of new and existing signature designs with an urban aesthetic. This avant-garde collection features designs from some of the most prolific names in the design industry, including Jamie Drake, Olivier Gossart, Andrée Putman and Alberto Pinto. Using simple and sleek lines, pure curves and subtle shapes, every design in the series incorporates the same manufacturing standards that sets THG apart. Take a closer look at the standout designs below.

Anoa
Introduced just last spring, 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.

Nano
Also introduced this past spring, 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 minimalist shape creates the impression of a fluid strand of polished steel contoured with a gentle curve.

Collection O
Collection O by Studio Putman combines the talents of Christofle, the late Andrée Putman and THG. An embodiment of modern luxury, the famous ring was designed by Putman for Christofle in 2002 as part of the Vertigo collection. Her daughter, Olivia Putman, who heads Studio Putman, was instrumental in this striking reinterpretation. A beautiful, sculptural and fluid design, each ring twists at the bottom with a rounded effect and is used as a discreetly functional element in various areas of each bath fixture.

Le 11 by Alberto Pinto
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.

Spirit
Contemporary and possessing a clean classic design, 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.

SO.
SO. puts a refreshing, updated spin on a long-time brand favorite and represents a collaboration between THG and French designer Olivier Gossart, best known for his dramatic hotel and residential interiors. The retro-modern waterfall spout is paired with Gossart’s updated vision of faucet handles in crystal, laser-engraved with “CHAUD” (hot) and “FROID” (cold) — bringing a high-tech, whimsical touch to the bath.

Beluga
Defined by bold lines and crisp edges, Beluga is a perfect complement to the modern bathroom and a dramatic architectural statement through its simple yet sophisticated design.

Bambou
As part of THG’s Cristal de Lalique Collection, the Bambou series is distinct in character and elegance. Contrasting shapes and textures create a dramatic yet beautifully sophisticated statement. Satin-finished crystal and elegant bamboo motifs gracefully compliment the bold contours of the spout. In addition to satin-finished clear crystal, the Bambou series is also available in Lalique satin-finished black or amber crystal.

Profil
The Profil faucet was designed for THG by the legendary designer Jamie Drake, whose designs showcase a penchant for the traditional and American glamour. The eyes are drawn to the sculptural handles of the Profil, embellished with inlays available in Lalique clear crystal, Lalique black crystal, and black onyx or metal.

Pure
Create a modern, architectural statement with the simple yet sophisticated designs of the Pure Collection, part of THG’s Contemporaine Collection. All THG products are meticulously handcrafted and available in more than 35 finishes.

Regal Elegance: Designs Inspired by the Craftsmanship of Fabergé Eggs

Regal Elegance: Designs Inspired by the Craftsmanship of Fabergé Eggs

In 1885, Tsar Alexander III of the Russian Imperial family commissioned jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé to make a bejeweled Easter egg as a wedding gift for his wife.

Fabergé’s fame as a master craftsman quickly spread throughout Europe, and his legacy lives on to this day.

Embodying exceptional craftsmanship, elegance and luxury, THG-Paris is world-renowned for its exquisite, hand-crafted faucets and accessories for the bath, including these striking collections inspired by the lavish look and meticulous craftsmanship of Fabergé eggs. Each element is created by true artisans who tool, cast, mold and finish each piece using celebrated techniques passed down through generations.

THG’s Beyond Crystal Wins PIA Award

THG’s Beyond Crystal Has Won Architectural Products Magazine’s Prestigious Product Innovation Award!

We are proud to announce that THG’s Beyond Crystal – their second collaboration with Baccarat – is the recipient of the 2014 Product Innovation Award (PIA) from Architectural Products magazine! The PIAs determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products that range the gamut from cladding systems to interior finishes.

THG’s Beyond Crystal in Collaboration with Baccarat: A Vibrant Collection Glowing with Opulence

Beyond Crystal is THG’s second partnership with one of the most prestigious and recognized brands in fine French crystal, Baccarat, and is a contemporary collection of bath fittings and accessories with translucent, rectangular crystal handles in vibrant Baccarat colors. This is also the first THG series to incorporate an innovative LED system, a soft accent that allows the pure Baccarat crystal to glow with the gentle ambiance of soft candlelight. THG has designed the crystal handles to rest effortlessly on top of their escutcheon bases, which are coupled with the LED option that illuminates from the base and can be dimmed to any level.

This striking and original jewelry-inspired series is available in a wide range of colors including ruby red, soft champagne, aqua, and deep blue, as well as clear crystal. Each widespread faucet and tub filler also features a dramatic, elongated spout, and all variations in the collection are available in a variety of finishes – with or without the LED option.

Using celebrated techniques passed down for generations, Beyond Crystal is constructed by THG’s expert artisans who tool, cast, mold and hand-finish each piece, resulting in an exceptional, quality product. And, as in THG’s first collection in tandem with Baccarat, Pétale de Cristal, this new collection stays true to the impeccable color standards of both exceptional French establishments.

Transparency and color are among some of crystal’s most important qualities – and the emblematic Baccarat Red is one the most distinguished and recognized colored crystals in the world. The creation of Baccarat Red is a world of alchemy, developed by adding gold to special elements at a specific temperature. Baccarat mastered this process in the late 1830s, making Baccarat Red their signature color.

The dynamic, contemporary Beyond Crystal collection also marks THG’s first collaboration with renowned designer Rémi Tessier, who has a long history in designing yachts and other high-profile, top secret luxury projects. The Beyond Crystal bathroom collection is defined by its modern style, featuring crystal lattices and pure shapes, with each set adorned with the prestigious Baccarat signature. The collection also includes a stunning mounted thermostatic shower set, tub filler and a multitude of accessories.

THG-Paris was also recently awarded the prestigious EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) Quality Label by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry, a label that Baccarat received in 2007. This further illustrates the commitment that THG-Paris and Baccarat have to producing the finest materials and craftsmanship. The EPV (known in English as “Living Heritage Enterprise”) Quality Label is a mark of recognition that distinguishes French companies with craft skills and manufacturing excellence.
