Introducing the Zip HydroTap Platinum Design Range

Winner of the 2015 Good Design Award, the revolutionary Zip HydroTap Design Range is set to shine on bench tops across Australia with the range’s new colour makeover. The HydroTap Platinum Design Range features 8 on-trend colours. Designed to fit any kitchen style, from the traditional to the contemporary. The Zip collection lets you enjoy instant boiling, chilled and sparkling filtered water at the press of a button, now in a stylish range of premium finishes. The styles include rose gold, brushed rose gold, gold, brushed gold, platinum, gunmetal, brushed nickel and nickel – a range designed to suit any kitchen aesthetic. For decades now, Zip has been perfecting their MicroPurity water filtration technology to bring delicious, crystal clear, pure tasting water to homes and offices across the world. The design trend of the year is matched with the latest innovative technologies, now with features incorporating superior user-friendly operation, and the ground-breaking 0.2-micron filtration system, which removes contaminants as little as 1/5000th of a millimetre – which means a pure tasting, healthier water for you. With chlorine taste and unpleasant odours also removed, yet fluoride retained, the result is water that is as delicious as it is healthy. Zip’s drive to revolutionise drinking water doesn’t stop there however; with the introduction of the new Design Range, inspired by the design community, Zip is transforming the way we drink. The Zip HydroTap Platinum Design Range naturally meets the highest standards of environmental responsibility and sustainability. With advanced energy efficiency and best in class cooling technology, the air-cooled ventilation system uses up to 53% less energy than previous models so water is never wasted.

Mad About Velvet

The hallmarks of velvet are its traditional Jacquard weaving technique, which melds two thicknesses of material together to create the plush density that is delightful to the touch. Named ‘Atelier’, in homage to the workshops and studio spaces of artisans and designers, Instyle's newest collection is designed to evoke the atmosphere of the intimate and theatrical, with velvet being the traditional fabric used to upholster these spaces. 19159866_atelier_capri_arthurgfurniture_instyle_03_1000px-72dpi With the Atelier collection, Instyle brings velvet back to the forefront as a premier textile suitable for any space with a range of 41 sumptuous and rich colours to choose from, including a rich purple aptly named ‘Opulent’, the deep navy ‘Indulgent’, and the ‘Dreamy’ grey neutral. Each colour offering makes the most of velvet’s dynamic and multi-dimensional effect as a finish with lighter and darker shades appearing depending on how the light hits the pile. 19159865_atelier-uv-164-3-72dpi-1000px Perfect for upholstery, curtains and wall panels, the Atelier collection is the perfect finishing touch for those seeking to add a little bit of luxury to their everyday lives.
