With the stress of the last few months, guests are going to be looking for ways to find relaxation wherever they can get it. Sometimes, a long, hot shower or soak in the tub can be just what they need. These elegantly designed products can help.
QTOO International’s new marine-grade stainless-steel shower and bath systems provide developers and hotel space designers with a wonderful way to create outdoor and indoor showers. These sleek shower fixtures feature the best of Danish design, according to the company. They are durable enough to withstand rigorous water and environmental challenges, making them ideal for commercial and residential use.
“The inspiration for our alfresco shower was born out of the Danish industrial style delivering an essential focal point to open-air spaces,” said Peter Bjertrup Jensen, managing partner, QTOO International. “It was our desire to take the marine-grade stainless and put it in an environment that challenges it—hence the outdoor shower. This fixture creates an impressively practical application for designers looking to incorporate alfresco design but without fear—knowing that the faucet is made to stand up to the most demanding applications given its high abrasion resistance and anti-scald protection. The design team in Denmark worked with engineering to create a marine–grade stainless-steel shower system that performs flawlessly after each use while looking brand new.”
The new shower systems are engineered with an innovative volume control diverter that offers precise control over water flow and temperature with a built-in anti-scald protection. The systems include a head shower and baton hand sprayer, and are available in a brushed or polished finish.

California Faucets’ new All-Brass Multifunction Handshowers offer a quick and easy way to enhance the overall bathing experience while adding a spa-like sense of luxury to the bath, according to the company.
Bathers can select from three spray settings to soothe tired muscles, refresh the spirit or invigorate the body and mind. Each ergonomic handshower is made from solid brass. There is a choice of four designs and more than 28 artisan finishes.
“The inspiration for this collection came from our customers, especially those in the design community, who tell us there is a scarcity of high-quality handshowers that are offered in myriad finishes,” said Jeff Silverstein, president/CEO, California Faucets. “Most handshowers on the market are made of plastic, which does not lend itself to producing in handcrafted finishes. Our all-brass handshowers solve that, while also adding extra design touches not available in the generic plastic handshowers that flood the market. It’s a double win for quality and design.”
Each handshower comes in four unique design aesthetics: Traditional, with a slight curve and ring detail; the streamlined and tubular Contemporary; Industrial, which has a circular knurling detail on either end of the handle; and the vintage Steampunk with markings reminiscent of a steam valve gauge. Users can further customize their shower experience by selecting any of three functions: Jet for a vigorous spray, Massage for relaxation, and Air for a lighter, gentle sensation.
Hand-finished to order, the handshowers come in a rainbow of artisan color choices, from standard chrome finishes and trending gold and brass hues to black and white finishes, and even an array of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) finishes guaranteed against tarnishing for the life of the product.
An array of Decorative Swivel Wall Brackets—including Rope, Line, Hex, Concave, Round, Square, and Quad—helps complete the look. Plus, locking swivels enable users to securely position the handshower angle “just right” for the most comfortable, personalized shower experience.
