The beauty of Brizo


Brizo Tresa Faucet in Chrome
When I was in Chicago last month at KBIS (Kitchen & Bath Industry Show), I was excited to get a chance to visit Brizo Faucet’s new showroom – Dream 2O – at the Merchandise Mart. The showroom truly is a “playground” for architects and designers.

Brizo is known for their innovative technologies in faucet design as well as their cutting edge beauty. Having been one of their “Blogger 19” group, I have seen up close their attention to detail, the value they place on design and functionality and passion for their product line. As a “fashion” brand for the home, Brizo has long partnered with the amazing designer Jason Wu (the designer who did Michelle Obama’s inaugural gown)
Jason Wu fashion show
I attended Jason Wu’s fashion show in September 2010 with Brizo and was happy to have a seat so close as to see Mr. Wu’s craftmanship in his designs. Just stunning. Wu has now created a full suite of bathroom accessories for Brizo, called Odin.
Brizo Odin Collection Shower
Jason wanted to create a complete powder room suite, a vision which led to the
addition of several pieces not typically found in Brizo collections, including
a wastebasket, free-standing soap pump, soap dish, and drawer knobs and pulls.
The silhouette of a Baroque-inspired flower is subtly woven throughout,
providing a sense of cohesive integrity.
“Much like fashion
accessories help pull together an outfit, these added pieces complete the look
of the home bathroom, allowing homeowners to infuse the collection’s style
throughout the space to create one seamless, integrated design,”
said Judd
Lord, director of industrial design for Brizo products.
At the center of the collection is a faucet unlike any
other. Named for mythology’s Norse god of wisdom and magic, the Jason Wu for
Odin™ faucet
features a unique and unexpected rotating handle motion to emphasize the
collection’s modern and seamless design. Punctuated by Wu’s signature Miss Wu
owl emblem on the tip of the handle, this faucet is truly the collection’s
The Jason Wu for Brizo Odin faucet is equipped with
Technology, which allows users to start and stop the flow of water with a
simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle of the faucet.  For a more intuitive experience, its
hands-free mode activates the flow of water when hands are anywhere within 4”
of the faucet.

Some of the Blogger 19 alumni (a group that now numbers around 100) were on hand at Brizo’s Merchandise Mart showroom party in April, as was Jason Wu.

I promise, I wasn’t photo-bombing this photo!
