Its washer-free ceramic disc valves help prevent wasteful dripping, and its solid cast-brass body is finished in chrome.DuraStyle by Matteo ThunDuravitduravit.usAward-winning architect Matteo Thun puts his modern stamp on an upscale bath collection aimed at the commercial market. The DuraStyle series, noteworthy for the weightless or floating appearance of its fixtures, includes full or hand-rinse washbasins (shown), wall-mounted or floor-standing toilets, urinals, bathtubs, storage units, and even mirrors with integrated LEDs (also shown).Ara Bath CollectionDeltadeltafaucet.comClean, rectilinear lines are the hallmark of this new bath suite from Delta.

Side panels and a tray prevent excess water from dripping to the floor.

These hybrid energy cells are estimated to provide up to 30 years of maintenance-free use compared with the three-to-five-year lifespan of typical flushometer batteries.Custom Shower and Toilet StallsCarvartcarvart.comCustom glass and hardware systems company Carvart offers solutions for a variety of architectural-interior needs, including frameless wet-space partitions such as shower stalls (shown) and toilet cubicles.
