Press release   •   Mar 14, 2017 13:37 GMT

The O.novo bathroom collection from Villeroy & Boch boasts a large selection of sanitary elements with a timeless design that combines clear lines with symmetrical oval forms, enabling attractive bathroom creations for any layout. The range includes standard and compact products as well as special products for accessible bathrooms and ceramic shower trays in the surprisingly inexpensive entry-level segment. This makes O.novo attractive for the private as well as commercial sector and gives architects plenty of creative freedom.

In 2017, Villeroy & Boch has added more models to the product range to better meet the needs of builders and planners for special solutions – a rimless urinal with DirectFlush technology, a small corner hand-rinse washbasin and a compact trap cover for hand-rinse washbasins.

New Products 2017

The new urinal in the entry-level segment is perfect for commercial properties. It combines timeless design with perfect functionality. The DirectFlush technology, i.e. an open rim, makes it easy to clean, therefore providing maximum hygiene for high-traffic public and semi-public sanitary facilities. Consuming only 1 litre of water per flush, the new urinal is very environmentally friendly and economic. Existing O.novo urinals can be easily replaced by the new models, e.g. for a renovation project, thanks to the compatible connection dimensions.

The O.novo collection has gained a space-saving model for small guest toilets with the new corner hand-rinse washbasin. It has a side length of only 320 mm and is fitted with an overflow. It also comes with the dirt-repellent CeramicPlus surface finish for easy cleaning.

The O.novo collection

All O.novo ceramic products are in White Alpin and come with the optional dirt-repellent CeramicPlus surface finish. Selected models are also available with the AntiBac anti-bacterial glaze, which reduces bacterial growth by 99.9%. The toilets only need 3 or 4.5 litres of water for an optimal flush. Thanks to an innovative concealed attachment, the floor-standing toilets and bidets can be replaced very quickly without any additional drilling, e.g. when the bathroom is being renovated. As the attachment is concealed, it gives the toilet a high-quality look. Special mounting nuts also make it easy to attach the cistern. The rimless toilet models with DirectFlush technology provide maximum hygiene.

The O.novo collection also features a large selection of baths and shower trays in a wide range of forms, sizes and materials, all with a timeless design and very comfortable and easy to use, as well as modular bathroom furniture with a fresh design.

O.novo Vita for accessible bathrooms

Special Vita products have been added to the O.novo collection for accessible planning. The O.novo Vita washbasin is available in the sizes 55 cm and 60 cm. The 55 cm projection provides a knee clearance of 30 cm, which allows wheelchair users to sit comfortably in front of the washbasin or slide their wheelchair underneath. Grooves under the unit can be used for support and to pull the wheelchair forward. A wide surround provides additional support.

The 80 cm washbasin with the same projection also provides plenty of knee clearance and wheelchair accessibility. One particular highlight are the handles integrated in the front of the ceramic, to the right and left of the washbasin, which make it easier for the user to pull up their wheelchair. The handles can also be used as practical towel holders to conceal the accessible functionality of the washbasin. The washbasin also has wide ceramic ledges above the handles.

Apart from washbasins, O.novo Vita also offers a number of raised floor-standing toilets that are 46 cm high, which are easier to use and provide a more comfortable experience. They are available as washdown and shelf toilets. There are also two wall-mounted toilets, one raised and one longer 700 mm version, which come with the innovative DirectFlush technology. The O.novo Vita toilet combination with a cistern is also equipped with DirectFlush. The matching toilet seats have a special buffer that prevents the seat from slipping sideways. The AntiBac anti-bacterial surface as well as the groove on the edge of the toilet lid make it easier to lift the lid easily and hygienically. White as well as blue seats are available, which make orientation easier for people with dementia.
