Riobel launches luxurious bathroom and kitchen brassware in the UK
London, UK: After 25 years of success in its domestic market, award-winning Canadian brassware brand Riobel is launching to design professionals and consumers in the UK and selected EMEAA markets. Riobel offers luxury design for modern living, with a product portfolio spanning contemporary kitchen and bathroom taps and a range of matching accessories.
Founded in Quebec in 1995 by a plumber, from a family of plumbers, Riobel’s roots are in smart engineering – its patented RioWiseTM valves still lead the industry. Yet today it is best known for its award-winning designs. Quebec’s French influences are part of Riobel’s design DNA, a fascinating symbiosis of North American flair and European panache.
Inspired by contemporary architectural forms, Riobel’s products are characterised by geometric shapes and unique angles. A brilliantly modern aesthetic underpinned by advanced engineering; innovative products designed to be effortless to use. Avant garde design can often be at the expense of practicality, but Riobel ensure that there is no compromise between fresh and original forms and day-to-day use.
All Riobel products are built for durability and reliability, as befits a company established by a plumber. The brand’s low maintenance and easy to install products make Riobel’s brassware perfect for use in family bathrooms, and in their home market are strongly favoured in the contract and hospitality market.
Each Riobel collection has a distinctive form with a sleek, modern, and sophisticated appearance. Across the bathroom collections, a comprehensive range of products are available, from basin mixers to shower sets, making it easy to achieve a coherent look in any bathroom space. The kitchen taps are offered in four stunning finishes, with Brushed Gold and Black expected to be popular.
The design language is best seen through its latest collections.
The Parabola bathroom collection, a category winner at the Grands Prix du Design, has a parabolic spout and chamfered body, giving it an entirely original profile. Glamorous in Chrome, sophisticated in black, Parabola is the perfect centrepiece for a contemporary bathroom.
Riobel’s DNA is equally apparent in Venty’s sharp angles, softened by organic curves. The subtle tilt of the neck and finely pointed handle convey an elegance so often missing in modern design. An exceptional collection to build a bathroom around.
Kitchen taps can be conventional and uninspiring, but Riobel’s Solstice is a sleek and chic kitchen tap that looks dramatically different yet is effortless to use. Choose from Polished Chrome, Stainless Steel, Brushed Gold, or Black finish to make the slim profile stand out.
Riobel’s mastery of geometric forms is epitomised by Ludik. The fusion of linear and circular forms creates a dramatic architectural style. Like all Riobel taps, the advanced engineering beneath makes Ludik a perfect combination of performance and design purity.
In Canada, Riobel is known for its RioWiseTM valve technology. These valves control all bathroom temperatures and water pressures in a single, easy to install unit, blending the hot and cold water to the perfect temperature before delivering it to the tap or shower head.
Riobel joins the new House of Rohl family of luxury kitchen and bathroom brands, alongside Victoria + Albert Baths,Perrin & Rowe and Shaws of Darwen.
‘We are delighting to introduce Riobel to British designers and consumers – we think it offers something genuinely different into the market. Riobel’s modern architectural style, built around industry-leading technology, brings accessible luxury to the kitchen and bathroom.” comments Emma Joyce, House of Rohl Brand Manager, EMEAA.
