The Cool House: Champagne Supernova

Champagne Supernova

When I met Jon Spector, President and CEO of Dornbracht Americas, at a Blogger's Bash last month, I learnt Dornbracht would be launching a new faucet at ISH 2009. I was promised a geometric faucet that would become as iconic as their sleek and beautiful Tara faucet. Mr Spector thought its origami shape of the new product might be just what I was looking for to be the jewel in the master bath rehab. Believe me, I was already excited but when he told me it was to be called Supernova and would be available in a champagne finish I was beside myself.

The champagne finish has a top layer of 22 carat gold, which will probably put it beyond our reach but there is a chrome version that may be a tad less glamorous but is just as stylish. The crisp sculptural quality does echo the rooflines of The Cool House, so from a design perspective this faucet is a winner.
Of course I couldn't write this post without a reference to this song. I don't know if it was a deliberate homage on the part of Dornbracht's marketing and design teams but I can't imagine that it didn't cross their minds that everyone would be singing it while they shower. I haven't been able to stop since I first heard about it, can you imagine what I'll be like when the Supernova finally makes it to the showroom?

It's a beautiful faucet (but really the Oasis reference is what caught my eye).
