Riobel launches Solstice kitchen tap in the UK

Riobel is expanding its kitchen brassware collection with the introduction of the Solstice tap. The striking form of the Solstice is an eye-catching addition to any kitchen.

Already a success in its native Canada, the Solstice tap is set to enjoy the same level of acclaim and recognition in the UK. The brand’s product portfolio spans contemporary kitchen and bathroom taps with a range of matching accessories. The Solstice is one of five stylish new taps in the Riobel kitchen collection.

Solstice is a kitchen tap with a unique profile, tall and sleek, with a slender handle that accentuates the slim and graceful shape. Some people have described it as ultra-modern, but it could also be seen as organic and flower-like.

The Solstice incorporates Riobel’s patented 2-jet Boomerang™ spray technology with an integrated 360 swivel. This uniquely flexible and effective tool is accessed by a subtle catch placed behind the spout that doesn’t interrupt the sleek lines of the tap.

The hand spray itself retracts seamlessly and quickly into the spout – the braided nylon hose reduces friction between the pull-down hose and faucet spout for quieter operation. It is simply one of the best pull-downs on the market.

‘One of our most striking and original designs, the award-winning Solstice tap looks beautiful in any kitchen it graces. Plus it offers a high level of functionality thanks to its inbuilt Boomerang™ technology. Since its launch last year, Riobel has received an exceptional reception from designers, architects and showroom retailers, and we’re very excited about the introduction of Riobel to the UK market,’ comments Emma Joyce, House of Rohl Brand Manager, EMEAA.

Consumers can purchase this tap – and all Riobel taps – with confidence knowing that it is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Inspired by the shapes of contemporary architecture, Riobel brings a unique design DNA to the market, and the Solstice is a perfect example of this. The striking and distinctive form of the Solstice tap lends itself to contemporary and industrial style kitchens in the Gold or Black finish. Alternatively, opting for the Chrome or Stainless Steel finish adds a point of interest to a traditional country kitchen aesthetic.

Riobel’s contemporary aesthetic is underpinned by incredibly advanced engineering, the brand champions innovative products designed to be effortless to use and install. Riobel products are built for durability and reliability, as befits a company established by a plumber. The brand’s low maintenance and easy to install products make Riobel’s brassware perfect for use in family bathrooms and amongst the contract and hospitality market.

Riobel kitchen faucets feature great engineering along with beautiful design. The brand offers a wide variety of configurations, including pull-out faucets with unique Boomerang™ retraction technology, pull-out faucets for extended reach, coordinating bar and food prep faucets, and bridge kitchen faucets with dual-spray functionality.

Founded in Quebec in 1995 by a plumber, from a family of plumbers, Riobel’s roots are in smart engineering – its patented RioWiseTM valves still lead the industry, allowing users to blend hot and cold water to achieve the perfect temperature before delivering it to the tap or shower head. Today, Riobel is the leading premium brassware manufacturer best known for its award-winning designs. Quebec’s French influence lies at the heart of Riobel’s design aesthetic, which makes for a fascinating symbiosis of North American flair and European panache.
