Resulting from a longstanding partnership with interior designer Roger Thomas, Speakman, a manufacturer of showerheads and plumbing products, launches the complete Vector Collection. The modern bathroom collection celebrates architectural purity with strong lines that guide the eye throughout the bathroom and create a visual experience from every angle.
“It’s always a thrill to see how beautifully Speakman executes my vision,” Thomas said. Though commonly recognized for his decorative work in product design, Thomas wanted to bring forth his structural background in these pieces.
“I resisted the urge to embellish these designs in order to capture their most pure and simple form,” he added. “I love how these products, second-to-none in functionality and durability, help turn a bathroom into an enveloping six-star experience.”
Thomas is best known for his career with Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas.
“Hospitality design often leads the way in innovating form and function, especially in the bathroom,” said Adam Horwitz, general manager of Speakman. “This collection is a great example of that trend, which can easily translate to residential bath applications as well.”
Vector is a wide-ranging bathroom collection that includes Roman tub faucet controls, towel racks, showerheads and accessories. The collection’s faucets come with three handle styles that perfectly complement the low-arching spout: keystone handles in a minimal cylindrical look with a keyhole, a slight intervention to create comfort while maintaining a pure form; lever handles that provide a feeling of levity with a lightweight design that is comfortable in the hand; and cross handles depicting a plus symbol that pays homage to Speakman’s first plumbing fixtures and has been modernized for contemporary customers.
Vector showerheads are available in 2.5, 2.0, and 1.75 GPM (gallons-per-minute) flow rates to comply with differing requirements. ADA-compliant, the products offer an easy way to fully equip any hotel, spa or residential bathroom.
Speakman’s Design Manager Jeff Harwanko added, “In creating this collection, we worked directly with Roger and his team. Based on his hand drawings, sketches and concepts, we brought the complete line of products to life.”
Finishes include polished chrome, brushed bronze and matte black, while additional specialty finishes are available upon request for large projects.
