INDIANAPOLIS - Urban loft and high-rise dwellers have a reputation for possessing a very cool, very hip design sensibility.   And, they are no longer alone.  A growing number of consumers are now looking to create a cleaner, more minimalist feel in their kitchen and bath.  With the Grail® kitchen and bath and Arzo® bath collections from Delta Faucet, homeowners have a menu of kitchen, bath and shower faucets to satisfy their taste for a more contemporary style.

The Grail and Arzo lavatory faucets are labeled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as water-efficient with an official WaterSense® designation.[1] The lavatory faucets flow at 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at 60 psi, saving approximately 30 percent of water over their 2.2 gpm counterparts.

Both collections also offer a WaterSense labeled showerhead option, helping to save water in the shower without sacrificing the user experience.  Using Delta Faucet's innovative H2Okinetic TechnologyÒ, the Grail and Arzo showers improve water efficiency by 40 percent, flowing at 1.5 gpm while providing the feel of an enhanced flow of 2.5 gpm.

About the Collections

The collections consist of two different styles for the bath, each including lavatory faucets with matching showers, roman tubs and accessories. The Grail collection features two distinct functionalities in the kitchen with the sleek, single-hole pull-down and deck mount options.

Grail features the sleek lines and minimalist styling often found in contemporary European designs. The tubular design of the lavatory faucet is available in single- and two-handle widespread configurations. Matching tub and shower and Roman tub with hand shower options complete the bath collection. Finishes include Chrome and Brilliance® Stainless. The Grail design can be carried through the bath into the living/entertaining area with a choice of matching Grail kitchen faucets.

For those who like to make a bold statement, the angular shape of Arzo is the choice. Its style echoes the geometric designs found in modern furniture and lighting and is available in single-handle lavatory, widespread lavatory, and Roman tub. Those who prefer bold design often relish a bold shower experience. Arzo's square raincan showerhead offers that drenching shower sensation. Finish options include Chrome and Brilliance® Stainless.

"We believe the range of styles offered in Arzo and Grail will speak directly to those sophisticated consumers who desire clean, contemporary lines in their homes," said Sam Straub, Delta and Peerless products director.
