HBA debuts product line with Italian manufacturer Gessi
HBA launched HBA PRODUCTS at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Capitalising on more than 50 years of collective experience specifying and creating custom hospitality products, HBA announced its premier collection of bathroom fittings and fixtures with Italian manufacturer, Gessi Spa of Milan.
RILIEVO, the flagship line from HBA PRODUCTS, was created in partnership with Gessi Spa, the Milan-based manufacturer focusing on wellness, bathrooms and kitchens. RILIEVO is the Italian term for respite, a place for relief and tranquillity. RILIEVO’s modern form and functionality has been carefully crafted to answer modern hospitality industry requirements of a great-looking product at a cost-effective price. RILIEVO expands and complements Gessi’s in-depth range of stylish and elite products.
RILIEVO’s inspiration draws on the Confucian meaning of a circle within a square: heaven and earth, while the tailored form speaks of harmony and balance. It features clean lines that offer a timeless design embodying the essence of purity. The collection includes a range of basin mixers, bidet mixers and shower mixers in varying sizes and metallic finishes along with Gessi’s state-of-the-art technology and engineering standards.
