Villeroy & Boch at the SHK 2012 - Omnia Architectura DirectFlush

Innovation that meets the most stringent hygiene requirements –

Omnia Architectura DirectFlush: WC with only 4.5 litres water consumption and no flush rim

The new WC Omnia Architectura DirectFlush clearly demonstrates Villeroy & Boch’s renowned innovative strength. Omnia Architectura DirectFlush is the first wall-mounted WC with no flush rim and a water consumption of only 4.5 litres, reduced from the usual 6 litres while maintaining high flushing efficiency. A novel central flushing element replaces the usual flushing rim allowing for an entirely glazed open rim that is particularly quick and easy to clean thoroughly. Omnia Architectura DirectFlush is thus ideal for use in places with the most stringent of hygiene requirements, such as hospitals or busy public buildings. The 37 cm x 53 cm WC is available in the colours White Alpin, with CeramicPlus as an optional extra, and Pergamon, enhanced with CeramicPlus as standard.

Versatile contract collection further extended

Omnia Architectura DirectFlush extends Villeroy & Boch’s extremely versatile contract collection Omnia Architectura, with which architects and planners can create individual solutions for public and private buildings – solutions that take even the smallest detail into account and that set high design standards while remaining economically attractive. The Omnia Architectura collection includes not only sanitary ceramics but also a complete acrylic bathtub range, and is designed to satisfy professional standards with a very broad and deep product range. All the Omnia Architectura items are characterised by their well-conceived functionality and their timeless puristic design.
