Surface – The Latest Methven Tapware Collection

Surface – The Latest Methven Tapware Collection

Surface – a bold streamlined geometric range – is the latest award-winning release from New Zealand shower and tapware manufacturer Methven.

Methven has been creating amazing water experiences since the 1880s, and in celebrating its 130th year in business, the brand is unveiling Surface, a uniquely ­bold, streamlined geometric tapware collection combining clean lines and elegant floating planes. The result is a refined contemporary architectural aesthetic to complement a range of interiors.

The 2016 Chicago Good Design Awards saw Methven taking out two awards, one for the highly celebrated Aurajet Twin Shower System, and the other for the new Surface tapware collection.

Methven has set a new standard in tapware with Surface, constructed from the highly durable and award-winning Eco Brass. Originally launched in the Aio tapware collection, this revolutionary high quality and high strength material is both lead and heavy metal free, containing less than 0.2% lead by volume. The composition of this material helps preserve water quality for both consumption and bathing in addition to being incredibly robust; Methven’s Eco Brass is actually as strong as stainless steel 303 grade, giving it the highest strength of any wrought Copper Alloy!

As a result of utilising this enduring material, Methven is able to offer an industry leading 20-year warranty on both parts & labour. This bold, award-winning collection is guaranteed to turn heads for years to come.
