Aqualite is the collection designed by Alberto Apostoli for Newform.
This collaboration stems from the company's desire to expand its range of taps with new products specifically designed for the "wellness" industry, suitable for integration with the architectural structure and able to highlight the naturalness of the "water material".
On the other hand, it was critical to Apostoli to find a partner able of developing new products, designed from real technical and aesthetic needs, resulting from his two decades of experience in the Wellness industry.
The production in this area, in fact, often remains linked to a mere exercise in style, while the collection "Aqualite", being inspired to the natural water fall, wants to give back to this precious element its primal essence.
Aqualite is characterized by a neat and elegant design and it is composed by 5 products: a shower head complete of lighting and its innovative control; a switch with push technology; a faucet characterized by a luminous line that changes color depending on the temperature; a recessed tap whose shape blends with the architecture.
In fact, the ability to seamlessly blend with the ceiling and walls is the peculiarity which makes these products unique and perfect for public and private wellness areas.
Aqualite Head shower - AL1
It is a recessed shower head that blends into the architectural structure “floating” within the same.
To achieve this effect, the two functions of the product, water and light, have been split.
Their interaction is realized by a series of volumes, different in size, which result in a single body and give to the product an extreme stylistic lightness.
The first volume, the largest, is made from the recess of the architectural structure; the inner surface can be decorated with a finish that make the element emerge from the rest of the masonry or, on the contrary, that totally integrates with it.
The second volume is constituted by an object made of Plexiglas which intersects the ceiling almost to disappear and that serves as a lighting element; thanks to a series of LEDs placed along the entire perimeter, this volume seems suspended in the air.
Finally we find the internal volume, the heart of the system, the actual shower head that generates the flow of water.
