FORTIS, a global leader in decorative plumbing, designed and produced in Italy, is the newest luxury brand of faucets recently made available in Canada. With handcrafted construction, the brand-new Uffizi and Abruzzo collections deliver a distinct experience of pure luxury.
FORTIS will be at the upcoming Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Orlando, Florida, USA, from January 10-12.
“FORTIS is recognized for its sophisticated and unique-looking faucets that are sure to make a statement,” says Adam Findlay, Senior Marketing Manager with Spectrum Brands.
“The newest additions to the FORTIS brand, the Uffizi and Abruzzo collections, are no exception. The Uffizi was even named after one of the most famous museums in the world, located in the heart of Florence. By taking design inspiration from the world around them, FORTIS is creating some of the most beautiful faucets in the world. They have to be seen to be truly appreciated.”
The newest FORTIS products include several options to transform your kitchen or bathroom with the latest design trends. The Uffizi and Abruzzo faucets can be purchased as a single control trough faucet, a vessel trough, widespread trough, or as a wall mounted faucet for added elegance.
With one of the most unique faucet designs available today, the Uffizi’s unmistakable look is given to it by its mix of glass and steel. When the tap is turned on, the faucet’s clear glass chamber bubbles and fills with water, flowing over the spout and into the sink. The faucet adds a sense of spectacle to the everyday with its totally new take on faucet design.
Not to be outdone, the Abruzzo collection features a modern and more angular design with a unique tapered front and narrow handle making for a completely sleek option – the perfect enhancement to any modern kitchen or bathroom.
The Uffizi and Abruzzo collections offer Canadians the opportunity to transform their kitchens and bathrooms with beautiful high-end faucets and a touch of European elegance. The new collections are now available at select showrooms across Canada.
FORTIS began in 1954 as a small artisan company with roots in Pogno, Italy, taking design inspiration from the nearby fashion capital of Europe – Milan. Each faucet references the heritage and craftsmanship unique to the FORTIS family and Italian tradition.
