I am back from New York and Brizo Fashion Week was simply fabulous. I learned so much and met so many wonderful people!
Brizo Team members, includes Industrial Designers, Product Marketing Managers and Communications and Events members. Such a friendly and genuine group! Photo courtesy Brizo Facebook Page.
The Brizo Faucet Line is part of the DELTA Faucet company and is aimed at a more fashion savvy clientele. “Glamorous”, “Elegant” and “Minimalistic” were buzz words used by Brizo members to describe the product lines. During the seminar we learned that Brizo is a “lifestyle”, and its mission is to inspire others to dream.
Brizo gave detailed presentations on current product lines. From traditional to contemporary, and everything in between, the company offers a plethora of bathroom or kitchen faucet designs. Imagine they shipped these cumbersome displays from their Indianapolis offices:

Brizo has been working on some pretty impressive technologies. From SmartTouch Technology where you

can operate the faucet by simply tapping it, to H2OKinetic Technology:
Larger water droplets offer a more massaging shower experience.
A dense shower spray offers a more drenching blanket of water coverage.
Larger water drops and a dense spray pattern results in a warmer, more consistent showering experience.

Another technology of interest is Temp IQ, or Temperature Sensing Technology , which is water temperature information given to the user via a strategically located faucet light. It turns blue for cold, pink for medium and red for hot. There is also an internal sensor which stops the hot temperature from going too high.

The little handle on right of this model shows no screws at all. It is smooth as a snake and incredibly nimble to operate:

The handle is ingeniously activated by a series of magnets and internal attachments and rotations unveiled here in this clear handle used to demonstrate the complexity of the design (graciously held by Jon Dartt, VP of Sales for Delta, who gave me his permission to take a photograph):
One of the beauties of the Brizo lines is how invisible screws are on the faucets and handles: this creates smooth, elegant product lines.
Brizo truly taught us so much and I am so grateful for the lovely invitation to join them!
I will blog more in the next few days to share more from my trip.
