Stormtech, the Australian manufacturer of linear shower drainage systems, has launched a new series of grates created in collaboration with internationally renowned designer, Marc Newson. A world-first in architectural linear grates, the partnership has created a new decorative solution for wet areas, including bathrooms, balconies, courtyards, thresholds, pools, paved areas and driveways.
Incorporating Newson’s signature tessellated hexagonal pattern, the new Stormtech 65MND Series grates are beautifully constructed from 2mm marine-grade stainless steel, available in satin stainless steel, satin black, white, pearl brass and blue finishes. The colours create a subtle accent that can blend or contrast with surrounding materials and fittings, such as tiles and tapware, while also adding texture with the grate pattern.
Previewed at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, the new Marc Newson-designed grate received the ICFF Editors’ Award in the Kitchen and Bath category for best design.
Manufactured in Australia, the complete Stormtech 65MND Series drainage system can be made to measure or purchased as a fixed length or patented modular option.
