Hansgrohe PuraVida / Dual-finish principle mixer

Hansgrohe PuraVida

Discipline: Material

Discipline: Material

Softness and precision, curves and planes: PuraVida extends the interplay of opposites with a bi-material look. Organically shaped, white-coated undersides make the mixer appear to be literally growing out of the ceramic base.The seamless fusion of the powder coating with the clean, high-quality chrome surface along the precise edge is the result of the ultimate in manufacturing quality. A pioneering effort in terms of electroplating and coating technologies was required to develop a means to bind the highly UV and wear-resistant coating to the substrate. In a final step, the PuraVida mixers are hand-polished to create the noble dual-finish.
