The New Finion Collection by Villeroy & Boch

Finion has been selected to receive an iF DESIGN AWARD 2017, one of the most prestigious design prizes in the world. The winning products are the freestanding bathtub, the washbasin and vanity unit and the WC with seat

A delicate and purist design, high-quality material and workmanship while boasting versatility and individuality. Finion, the new premium bathroom collection from Villeroy & Boch, creates a luxurious bathroom setting with its exclusive bathroom ceramics, elegant furniture, stylish lighting concept and high-quality monolith bath, making it an oasis of relaxation and well-being.

Designed as an extensive complete bathroom collection, Finion offers a wide range of possible combinations. The three different types of washbasins in three ceramic colours look stunning when combined with the numerous models of vanity units in ten colours. The bath also provides greater design freedom thanks to the design ring in three elegant metallic colours, lighting and Colour on Demand, opening up new scope for individuality and uniqueness in the bathroom.

Innovative ceramics – Washbasins made from TitanCeram

The renowned designer Patrick Frey exploited the excellent material properties of TitanCeram in creating Finion. “I took full advantage of the benefits of TitanCeram for the flowing, strongly contoured design of the washbasins as this material allowed me to make very thin and fine forms.” It resulted in ten ceramic washbasin models whereby the wall-mounted and surface-mounted washbasins have walls that are only 6 mm thick. The collection has surface-mounted, wall-mounted and vanity washbasins, ranging from a compact hand washbasin that is 43 cm wide to a spacious 130 cm double washbasin, therefore providing a perfect washbasin solution for all tastes and almost any room layout – from small guest bathrooms to roomy well-being oases. An optional integrated ceramic valve that is available with the ViFlow overflow system blends harmoniously into the washbasin, emphasising the collection’s premium character.

The wall-mounted toilet and bidet enhance the bathroom setting with their clear linear design. The rimless toilet is invisibly secured with SupraFix and fitted with DirectFlush technology. The SoftClosing feature closes the slim 40 mm toilet seat softly and silently and can be removed quickly and easily via QuickRelease when it is being cleaned. To improve comfort, the new ViClean-I 100 shower toilet can also be integrated into the Finion bathroom design.

Strong design and expressive colours – Furniture perfect for mixing and matching

The Finion furniture concept focuses on modular shelves, cabinets with handleless doors and push-to-open drawers. Exact edges and borders with faceted details emphasise the striking design of the shelves. They are very robust and durable thanks to their high-quality, scratch-proof surfaces. The furniture range captures the delicacy of the Finion washbasins with edges and carcasses that are only 8 mm thick. As the vanity washbasin is almost perfectly aligned with the base unit, the ceramics and furniture merge into an attractive visual entity. The collection comes with a choice of base units for vanity washbasins as well as for surface-mounted and wall-mounted washbasins in a wide range of sizes. It also includes complimentary furniture such as tall cabinets, side cabinets and a universal shelf unit that can be combined with all of the furniture. An exciting highlight in the Finion furniture collection is the optional smartphone charging station for the side cabinets and shelves.

The colour concept for Artis surface-mounted washbasins, designed by the German-Danish designer Gesa Hansen, inspired the colour concept for the Finion furniture. An exciting feature is that colours for the front, carcass and shelves can be combined according to personal taste. Gesa Hansen’s recommended combinations are an ideal choice. Classic colours such as White Matt, Glossy White, fine Grey as well as deep Black are available as are strong trendy shades such as the expressive green Cedar, the soft blue Cloud, the elegant red and violet Peony and the vibrant yellow Sun. Gold Matt adds a striking elegant touch whereas the dark and warm Walnut Veneer caters for a modern and natural component in the interior design. Glass panels are available in a choice of White Matt and Black Matt to match the vanity units. Two mirror models in a wide range of sizes round off the range.

Emotional atmosphere – Integrated lighting concept

The new collection features elegant furniture combined with a stylish lighting concept, providing a unique feel-good atmosphere. All furniture models come with a continuously dimmable emotion light feature. One of the two Finion mirror models is also fitted with an illuminated LED border and emotion feature. Optional features include a sound system and anti-fog function. Even the free-standing Quaryl® bath has been incorporated into the lighting concept. A remote control can be used to selectively dim and operate individual light elements.

Extravagant Quaryl® monolith – Free-standing bath as a centrepiece

The free-standing Quaryl® bath, which boasts a delicate design with precise, extremely thin edges that are only 15 mm thick, is another highlight of the Finion collection. This monolith is made from the finest Quaryl® and prides itself on its impressive design and material quality. In spite of the compact dimensions of 170 x 75 cm, it still has a generous internal surface, which is comparable to a traditional bath measuring 180 x 80 cm, and provides the best bathing experience. This also makes it ideal for smaller bathrooms.

The Finion bath is available in different versions: with and without a design ring on the outside of the bath as well as an optional emotion light feature. The design ring in the colours Chrome, Champagne or Gold adds a touch of elegance to the bath. The lighting arrangement on the bottom outside surface of the bath, which can be continuously dimmed via remote control and comes with a choice of light colours, makes it appear to float on a pedestal of light. This emotion feature is available with and without the design ring. It is even possible to select a dual-colour finish with a bright white interior and coloured panel. There are so many colours to choose from. The panel can be made in the colours in Gesa Hansen’s colour concept as well as all Sikkens, NCS and RAL shades (except for metallic colours) – either matt or glossy, depending on your taste. A Push-Open valve matching the metallic shades of the design ring as well as an optional colour coordinated water inlet add the finishing touches to the design concept.

Finion has been selected to receive an iF DESIGN AWARD 2017, one of the most prestigious design prizes in the world. The winning products are the freestanding bathtub, the washbasin and vanity unit and the WC with seat.
