KOHLER, Wis. (April 19, 2013) – At the 2013 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in New Orleans, Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, unveiled the Contemporary Multi-Function Handshower to join its successful Foundations collection. Conceived by Kallista with the consumer in mind, the new handshower brings yet another component to this universal product category, offering a mix of product to address traditional and contemporary tastes.

The Foundations collection began in 2008 with the Perfect Tub, and from that success, expanded in 2009 with three additional tub and air bath designs. Recognizing a need within the marketplace to provide choices that adapt to myriad surroundings, Kallista began to steadily add to the series with stand-alone bath products that address interior preferences and challenges with an uncomplicated, straightforward design approach.

Making its entrée into the line is the Contemporary Multi-Function Handshower, a clean, minimalist form that is tailored to create an exceptional bathing experience while maintaining an earth-friendly vibe. Three core sprays and two mix spray options allow the bather to choose from a rhythmic pulse spray for a gentle massage; a relaxing, wide coverage spray; and, a calming soft aerated spray. A large optimized 4 5/8” diameter spray face resists hard water build-up and is easy to clean. With a maximum flow rate of 2.0 gpm, the handshower is WaterSense® listed and meets the flow, force, and coverage requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency. The handshower is available in a choice of six finishes: Polished Chrome; Nickel Silver; Brushed Nickel; Gunmetal; Bronze; and Black Nickel.

Kallista is known for its designs of decorative plumbing products, offering faucets and fixtures thoughtfully created for tasteful, whole-bath solutions. Kallista is available in fine showrooms in major cities throughout the world.
