Jets of light and water. The right mixture of individually regulated brightness and well-tempered drops on the skin creates the best conditions for a refreshing start to the day as well as for pleasant relaxation in the evening

The bathroom is the ideal place to demonstrate the emotional qualities of light. ‘Royal Midas is the first concept for a connected, illuminated bathroom. This means that ceiling lights are connected to mirror cabinets, illuminated mirrors and cosmetic mirrors, ”explains Dirk Hagedorn, Head of Marketing and Product Development at KEUCO. One advantage is that the color temperatures, including that of the shower light, are always identical. The second advantage is that you can program your own favorites under the various lighting scenarios. These can easily be saved with a conventional light switch. The coordinated lighting guarantees perfect harmony in the bathroom. ‘

Wellness starts with ease of use, an essential point that should not be overlooked. “It is important for us to make bathrooms attractive and to integrate complex functions into the design,” notes Hagedorn, referring to the intuitive operation and the motto “less can do more”. This approach is best represented by the IXMO Series of fittings that, like fine-tuning the right lighting settings, offer the full range of functionality and aesthetics. The name says everything that results from the expression ‘x possibilities’ – or x number of possibilities.

X-factor: The IXMO fitting from keuco is intuitive and easy to use thanks to its compact bundling of functions. IXMO is an avowed favorite, even before a drop of water has fallen, because it offers architects the greatest possible freedom of planning

The fact that less can actually be more quickly becomes clear with the IXMO shower fittings. By bundling the various functions, the number of fasteners on the wall is reduced and a calm aesthetic is created. This is exactly where KEUCO takes on a pioneering role, as it has succeeded in integrating a three-way shut-off and switch valve, a wall outlet for the shower hose and a hand shower holder in just one module and making the fittings individually positionable. The IXMO system is also extremely flexible in terms of the various functions and offers planners and architects exceptional design freedom: up to three water outlets, shower head, hand shower with shower rod or wall bracket, over-pour shower and whirlpool hose can be combined with one another as required.

everything go out. With Royal Midas you can create individual lighting scenarios that suit the time of day or your personal mood. All KEUCO light sources – from make-up mirrors to ceiling lights – are integrated

This development perfectly embodies the spirit of innovation at KEUCO, whose company history goes back to the 1950s, when everything began with the manufacture of high-quality bathroom accessories. “Our product development is about making a difference. The difference is in the functionality. or in product design. or even better, in both cases – paired with excellent KEUCO quality, ”claims Hagedorn with conviction. All that remains is the decision on the surface, and that too is simple and straightforward. Various classic surfaces in chrome, stainless steel and aluminum as well as brushed versions in bronze, nickel and black chrome are available. Here, too, the company remains true to its own motto: inexhaustible variety from just one piece. so ‘small’, so good.
