When we speak with a new architectural practice, the difficulty of specifying high quality restroom fixtures and accessories in a coordinated finish is a consistent pain point. Finding one that also works with today’s clean aesthetic - like matte black - renders that search near impossible. But The Splash Lab product line was built with architects in mind, so when faced with this question, we turned to the pioneering science of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) to develop our popular black, brass, and copper finishes.
- Thin Putting a bulky case on an iPhone obscures its characteristic slenderness and curved corners. In the same way, more commonly used coatings added too much dimension to our products, altering the precise shapes and beautiful ratios at work in our designs. PVD colorization happens within the existing metal, allowing the curves to speak for themselves.
- Durable The titanium ions in PVD coating actually increase the hardness of the fixture itself, giving the products a much higher damage resistance.
- Kind As a future-oriented brand, TSL embraces sustainable technology. PVD is environmentally friendly as there are no toxic byproducts of the vacuum process, unlike powder coating or electro-plating.
