Scala tapware collection a timeless favourite
Australian tapware brand Sussex, celebrates its twentieth anniversary and more than 15 years since first introducing its iconic Scala collection into homes.
A timeless classic, the collection artfully balances clean, elegant lines with an industrial design sensibility that reflects Sussex’s heritage as Australia’s only foundry.
As the collection that launched Sussex as Australia’s premier designers of specialist tapware, Scala’s superb durability and impeccable design has made the collection a consistent best-seller.
Sussex director Vanessa Katsanevakis says the collection initially came from a desire to bring European trends into the Australian market.
“At the time, tapware was limited to very traditional three-piece styles with cross handles; with Scala we were one of the first Australian manufacturers to introduce an all-in-one cartridge mixer style into the Australian market,” says Sussex director Vanessa Katsanevakis.
With long term durability a focus, Scala’s contemporary design has been rendered in 316 marine-grade stainless steel. Resistant to rust, the collection is crafted to endure the harsh and varied Australian climate.
“We wanted to create a go-to collection for our customers that would complement any setting or conversely, work as a striking centrepiece, utilizing our unique Sussex customization options,” says Katsanevakis.
“The design for Scala is quintessentially Australian from its durable construction to its refined, timeless styling.”
For consumers who relish a hands-on approach to the design process or interior designers looking for a unique design solution, Scala can be fully customized providing endless design options and variations. This customization offering enables customers to create their own entirely bespoke tapware solutions from an extensive range of finishes.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve our existing products to meet changing market trends,” says Katsanevakis.
The Scala collection from Sussex is available nationally through Reece Australia wide, and New Zealand.
