NEW COUNTERPOINT® FAUCET ADDED TO BARBARA BARRY LINE FOR KALLISTA

Single Control Lavatory Faucet features designer’s signature oval shape

KOHLER, Wis. (October 24, 2012) – As part of its ongoing partnership with designer Barbara Barry, Kallista, a leading provider of decorative plumbing products, has introduced a new Single Control Lavatory Faucet to its successful Counterpoint line. This new faucet integrates Barry’s signature design motif – the oval – into an innovative handle that rotates counter-clockwise to control both water flow and temperature.

Like all of Barry’s designs for Kallista, the faucet has a simple, streamlined elegance that comfortably contours to the hand. It is a “sculptural and elemental form that integrates easily into any interior as a quiet and sparkling piece of jewelry,” according to the designer. The clean design seamlessly transitions from spout to faucet body, and the unique 90-degree mixing valve control allows users to effortlessly select their own perfect flow rate and water temperature.

This new 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. The new Counterpoint faucet comes in three finishes to coordinate with most design styles: Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver, and Brushed Nickel.
