Target: a low environmental impact Target: a low environmental impact

Target: a low environmental impact

One of the first activities of Newform LAB was to stimulate the creation of a product with a low environmental impact.
Despite the features of a product in line with the typical Newform high-quality levels , the LAB worked to obtain a more sustainable solution both as regards materials, consumptions and substances used during the production cycle, and as per the product features in its life on the Market.
 
The result is LINFA. An elegant collection, with a minimal design associated which manufacturing features which enhance its ecological  portrait.
 
Newform LAB wanted the product to limit  environmentally harmful emissions as well as to contain the operating costs. The goal has been reached thanks to some solutions, among which the innovative cartridge positioning – fully cold water (instead of mixed one) while opening the handle to avoid heater ignition, reducing in this way both CO2 emissions in atmosphere and energy consumption.
 
The LAB took also into consideration the water consumption, of course. Normally, a basin mixer has got a flow of 10 lt./min.  A simple flow reducer allows to limit the flow to 5 lt/min, granting as well a full-bodied jet, rich of air.
 
However, Newform LAB paid also particular attention to the production processes, to grant the product ecological feature right from the beginning.
The PWP treatment (Pure Water Process) which is carried out on metal, prevents the release in the potable water of toxic metals such as Lead (toxic by ingestion) and Nickel (apart from being toxic, it is responsible for many contact allergies).
 
Finally, the LAB decided that LINFA collection has to be submitted to an internal anti-bacterial  treatment to prevent bacteria from growing in the backwater inside the tap.
 
Of course we could not forget the package, which is made of recycled cardboard and non-toxic and recyclable materials.

Newform Design Award Newform Design Award

Newform Design Award

On the occasion of the Cersaie 2011 exhibition, Newform premiers the prototype of Natura taps in teh Lab area of its stand. This is a product developed by the style office of Newform on the basis of the model that won the Newform Design Award 2011 contest.
The objective of contest, in which young designers have participated, was to design a new line of taps by interpreting the aesthetic qualities of tap with originality, which is fashionable and in line with future trends, without neglecting its intended use.
Lightness, simplicity and poetry are all adjectives that describe at best the tap designed by Cyril Diesis, a young newly-graduated of the Brera Arts Academy of Milan. Natura is a tap with pure and elegant lines. Aesthetically refined and linear, Natura can be adapted to all home spaces, whether kitchen or bathroom.
The novelty consists in juxtaposing a statuesque element, almost organic, that interacts with the tap. Both are fixed to the same support so that the added element serves as a complement, to form a unitarybody. In this way, the sometimes neglected function of accessories is rediscovered.
Natura brings a touch of colour in the kitchen, because the statuesque element can become a vase for a plant or flowers. While in the bathroom, it can be used as a container for the toothbrush or as a glass: a definitely versatile tap!
