KALLISTA PRESENTS A MULTI-FUNCTION SHOWERHEAD AND STATUARY WHITE MARBLE HANDLE OPTION TO COUNTERPOINT®

KOHLER, Wis. (April 19, 2013) – Kallista, a leading provider of decorative plumbing products, extends the Counterpoint collection by Barbara Barry with a Multi-Function Showerhead and new handle option for its Single-Control Lavatory Faucet. Presented at the 2013 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in New Orleans, the Counterpoint collection by internationally renowned, multi-disciplined designer, Barbara Barry, is her fourth collection with Kallista, and inspired by the elegance and simplicity of modern design.

The Counterpoint Multi-Function Showerhead offers three core sprays and two mix spray options allowing the bather to choose from a rhythmic pulse spray for a gentle massage; a relaxing, wide coverage spray; and, a calming soft aerated spray. Solid brass construction ensures long-term durability and reliability, while the large, optimized spray face provides even, immersing coverage, and is constructed to resist hard water build-up that makes maintenance effortless. With a maximum flow rate of 2.0 gpm, the Counterpoint Multi-Function Showerhead is WaterSense® listed and meets the flow, force, and coverage requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency. The showerhead is offered in four finishes: Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel, and Bronze. .

lso making its debut is an elegant Statuary White marble handle option for the Counterpoint Single-Control Lavatory Faucet, Carved in Barry’s iconic oval design, the creamy white marble, gently veined in a smoky gray, reflects Barry’s chic sensibility and presence of line – a perfect complement to the Counterpoint faucet’s simple, streamlined elegance. "The oval shape of the handle, a signature form, feels comfortable in the hand and is easy on the eye with an ability to be seamlessly incorporated into any interior as a quiet and sparkling piece of jewelry," explained Barry.

The faucet rotates counter-clockwise to control both water flow and temperature. The clean, crisp form smoothly transitions from spout to faucet body, with an intuitive 90-degree mixing valve control allowing users to select their own perfect flow rate and water temperature.
The Counterpoint Single-Control Lavatory Faucet is WaterSense® listed, providing a 1.5 gpm flow rate, and is constructed of solid brass, ensuring its durability and reliability for many years. Kallista offers the faucet in three finishes: Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver, and Brushed Nickel.
