Body and levers of the Val tap series taper towards the front. This lends the single-lever mixers a light, slim appearance. The design consciously does without a rosette to simplify the cleaning of the tap and ceramics. The Val product family includes a raised tap for washbasin bowls, a twin-hole wall outlet, as well as models for the bathtub and shower. They all feature the same finely tuned design language and are equipped with an energy-saving cold start function.
Statement by the Jury
An elegant, timeless style characterises the Val tap series. Comfortable in use, they also convince with their good hygienic properties.
