arwa-twinplus – new 1-Point models for wash basins and showers
The arwa-twinplus faucet line is individual and expressive. The complete designer bathroom solution now has the addition of elegant and exceptionally sophisticated wall-mounted washbasin faucets. The shower mixer is also new; combined with the flush-mounted Simibox 1-Point unit, it creates the smallest shower solution. Only marginal structural changes are necessary on the wall with the Simibox 1-Point.
