NEW YORK – THG®-Paris, the leading French atelier in luxury bath and kitchen fittings, unveiled its first ever collection from its innovative, newly defined in-house design division, Studio THG. The new line, Dean, pays tribute to the Century of Flight as a modern yet industrial faucet that combines clean lines with a vintage feel – features that make it a true rebel within the elegant collections of THG-Paris.
Studio THG is an evolution of the THG brand’s remarkable French craft tradition, creating more modern, contemporary products that go beyond the traditional and often baroque signature styles of THG. Since 1950, THG-Paris has produced imaginative, high-end bathroom fittings that reflect the quality ancestral skills passed down from generation to generation by passionate craftsmen – those whose works of excellence are exported throughout the world.

Recognizing the evolution of aviation and the advancements in transportation that developed from the Golden Age of Aviation into a cultural affinity for stylish and functional machines, each piece of the Dean adds a nostalgic spirit to the collection, but with a modern and timeless spin. Knurled detailed fasteners secure each valve base in place and each lever is smooth, comfortable and inviting. To some, this feature appears reminiscent of a mechanic’s go-to wrench set; to others, it’s a control lever in the cockpit of a commercial plane or even the prop on a twin-engine transcontinental airliner. The natural and soft curves of the two different spout variations also add a simplicity to Dean that is gentle but purposeful, creating a remarkable interplay of contemporary and transitional styles.
Dean is available for basins, showers and baths and with a coordinated accessories line. This series is available in a wide choice of finishes, including chrome, gold, soft gold, nickel, rhodium silver and rose gold.
