Take a look at a faucet from Brizo that has taken it’s design from nature or to be more exact a swan. The Brizo team travels all over looking for inspiration- (I know right?) Who wouldn’t want in on something like that but in truth, it takes a creative mind to see the natural beauty and designs found all around us and then adapt that to a faucet or other mechanical design.
The Vuelo’s concept comes from an elegant form in nature which I found interesting. Not from the fact that it was a swan but from the fact that when visiting with Brizo, I found out that they looked at nature and all types of objects to develop new faucets. Vuelo if I not mistaken also means “flight”.
Now when you add to it’s sleek lines you can also add these features which I know I would appreciate in a faucet.
Turn on and off the water just by touching any part of the handle or faucet.
Patented, state-of-the-art magnetic docking system securely holds the spray wand in place when not in use.
DIAMOND™ Seal Technology
Revolutionary water delivery system that uses a diamond-coated valve to bring you a faucet built to last up to 5 million uses.
Kitchen Faucets: Flow Rate of 1.8 gpm or 1.5 gpm versus Industry Standard ASME.A112.18.1/CSA.B125.1 of 2.2 gpm.
Some people, and some local codes, require fixtures that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. If someone may visit who has special needs, or if you believe future buyers might appreciate this feature, Brizo offers a range of compliant fixtures.
Faucets designated as being “no-lead compliant” are those that are compliant with state and federal drinking water legislation.
Even the accessories are formed from the same design elements and naturally compliment the faucet that would stand proud in any kitchen setting. Now you may wonder why the extra accessories such as the sprayer when the Vuelo has a pull down sprayer. Well let’s suppose you have a sink that has 2 or 3 holes presently there from your former faucet. Instead of putting some ugly plate over them wouldn’t it be better to add one of these options?
There is indeed an escutcheon that will do the job of covering the extra holes to if the extra accessories aren’t something that you want but I prefer the look of the accessory items as it adds to the depth.
However whatever choices you decide on the Vuelo from Brizo is surely a piece that adds an artistic, graceful look to your kitchen. Swans look beautiful on a lake but their form and functions are better left to a beautiful facet in your kitchen.
