Luxury British bathing brand Victoria + Albert Baths is thrilled to announce the launch of Soriano, a new Stainless Steel brassware collection with a contemporary brushed finish. Designed by Meneghello Paolelli Associati and made in Italy, the Soriano collection is inspired by ‘Boolean’, the coding logic defined by “1s” and “0s” and is characterised by crisp lines and geometric angles. The brilliance of Soriano is its simplicity; the spout, lever and base of each piece is defined by one shape.
Stainless Steel is a new finish for Victoria + Albert, making a true design statement and delivering advanced durability. Soriano is crafted from a grade of Stainless Steel chosen for its corrosion resistance and machinability. The contemporary brushed finish is applied using specialized techniques, and the final pieces are hand assembled by artisans.
“We aimed to create a clean, sharp and elegant collection. We see these values as inner elements of the Stainless steel itself. We tried to work with this material by giving expression and supporting these characteristics, without forcing its nature. Geometry, intersection and Boolean are the key words of Soriano“– Meneghello Paolelli Associati.
The Soriano 9 is a three-hole basin mixer that perfectly complements Victoria + Albert’s range of vanity furniture and recessed basins. A unique function of this mixer is that the water jet can be adjusted up to 17.5°.
The Soriano 14 is a floor-mounted modern bath mixer with a handheld shower attachment, cleverly complementing Victoria + Albert’s range of freestanding baths. The Soriano 14 has just one standpipe, making it the perfect choice for minimal bathroom design.
The Soriano 16 and Soriano 19 are both ‘Monoblock’ deck-mounted basin mixers with one handle, with the Soriano 19 offering a low-deck option. Both mixers are ideal when paired with Victoria + Albert’s range of vessel and recessed basins. A 17.5° adjustment can be made to the angle of the water jet with an adaptable aerator.
The Soriano collection also includes a concealed shower collection, a new configuration for Victoria + Albert for 2018. The concealed collection can be matched with different components to find the perfect combination for their bathroom. Start with the Hub 01 concealed valve, which is thermostatically controlled for safety. This two-way hub is compatible with the diverter control (Soriano 31), which allows the choice between two water outlets from a bath spout (Soriano 43), handheld shower (Soriano 42) and shower rose (Soriano 41). Concealed shower applications are notable for their clean, minimal aesthetic, a look commonly seen in luxurious hotels.
The Soriano collection is tested to 0.5 bar minimum, allowing it to be installed in properties with low water pressure.
