Franz Viegener produces a curated selection of sculptural bath fittings that synthesize architecture, geometric forms and fluidity. A dedicated facility within the company’s 700,000-sq.-ft. complex in Buenos Aires draws upon the brand’s European engineering and South American artisans to create the Premium Collection’s handcrafted products.
Franz Viegener Premium Collection is a high-end, meticulously crafted and engineered portfolio of bath fittings with products that are contemporary, authentic and pure. A select group of engineers and designers within the factory were chosen to focus on creating these bold, timeless and stylish designs with the functionality demanded by the discerning North American consumer. Each distinct collection is a fusion of the cultural and historic South American surroundings in which the brand thrives, together with the discipline and engineering prowess of the Viegener family. Every piece that comes out of the factory is machined, polished, assembled and tested. The products are then packaged with care to ensure that upon arrival the products reveal themselves immediately.
The company’s innovative designs have earned it international accolades, including three consecutive GOOD DESIGN Awards from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd. and back-to-back “Best in Show” honors at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair as well as Dwell on Design.
Designed to leave a lasting impression, the Edge collection distills faucet design to its essence, delivering the visual equivalent of a die-cut piece of steel. The monolithic silhouette reveals a graceful, sophisticated and ultra-modern faucet that has been crafted to impeccable detail and precision. When viewed from various angles, Edge reveals the modern engineering that’s helped the collection earn several notable designs and engineering awards, including the GOOD DESIGN award. Even the flat, fin-like arched lever handles are precision-machined, as if cut from the same silhouette. Edge is manufactured from solid brass and is available with cross handles.
The reach of the Buzz single handle lavatory set is ideal for spacious basins, while the single hole faucet is a popular choice for space-saving installations and boutique spaces. A vaulting pyramid base leans back subtly before flaring into the spout and handles, with no escutcheon to interrupt the elegant, curvilinear lines. With precise yet fluid dimensions, the Buzz is distinguished by its softly rounded line segments that meet at a delicate angle, yielding a singular, standout shape.
The Shoreline’s stark, angular features are delicately mitigated by an aquiline spout, contributing to an avant-garde yet minimalistic design. The bold, design-forward faucet features discreetly chamfered edges in the symmetrical handles and S-shaped spout. Subtle yet precise, the Shoreline is the epitome of Franz Viegener’s architecturally-engineered refinement and excellence in design.
Nerea Single Hole Faucet
The name Nerea is derived from Greek, and it means ‘to flow, to swim, to navigate’—an apt description for this elegant collection. The Nerea single hole faucet has a 6″ spout reach, accentuating the faucet’s simple yet stylish design. The knurled back-tilting handle provides increased depth and engagement, making it an ideal choice for vessel sinks. Meanwhile, low-profile escutcheons add just the right finish to the collection. Available finishes: polished nickel, polished chrome, brushed nickel, matte black chrome, rose gold, polished gold, brushed gold and flat black.
Lollipop Single Hole Faucet
The Lollipop Single Hole Lever faucet is available with or without diamond knurling details, the no-notch-back tilting handle is another example of the precision-engineering that goes into every product from Franz Viegener. Moving the easy-to-grip, ADA-compliant handle forward or back provides users with a tactile experience when turning the faucet off and on. The knurled handle carries the texture through the design which balances the overall effect, with taller versions ideal for vessel sinks. Available finishes: polished nickel, polished chrome, brushed nickel, matte black chrome, rose gold, polished gold, brushed gold and flat black.
Refined and elegant, Skyline is the physical embodiment of smooth. This subtly avant-garde faucet collection is an ode to the urban landscape, with a minimal design creating a visual statement without overpowering the bath. The gentle shape of the faucet belies the technical savvy and expertise that goes into creating something seemingly so unadorned. Skyline is available in the following finishes: polished nickel, polished chrome, brushed nickel, matte black chrome, rose gold, polished gold, brushed gold and flat black.
