IDEAL STANDARD INTERNATIONAL Unveils e-Vision, Bringing The Digital Age Into The Bathroom

Intuitive, personalised digital networking platform and control system for the bathroom already wins prestigious design award at ISH

Ideal Standard International, the leading bathroom solutions provider, today unleashed a new era in digital networking into the bathroom with the introduction of e-Vision, a  highly advanced technological platform and unique bathroom control system, under its luxury brand Jado.

Delivering on its vision of bringing the digital age into the bathroom, Ideal Standard International is introducing e-Vision, a platform for “digital intelligence”, offering consumers greater functionality, a trendy design and savings whilst at the same time providing unprecedented levels of comfort and ease of use. The first application of e-Vision is showcased at ISH with a futuristic electronic fitting and shower kit solution which will become available in September 2011. Created by renowned design house Artefakt, e-Vision has already received industry recognition by winning the prestigious Design Plus award at the 2011 ISH fair.

Unique patented technology and cutting-edge design
e-Vision was created for consumers with an eye for cutting-edge design and an interest in trendy technological applications in their bathroom. This latest innovation by Ideal Standard International is an industry first: the intuitive, digital control system enables users to pre-program individual settings for personalised water flow, volume and temperature with a simple touch from their fingertips.

e-Vision’s patented opto-electronic technology enables variable settings and reliable functionality even under the influence of water and moisture. For the first time, this kind of tactile technology is used successfully in the bathroom as the e-Vision distinguishes between a drop of water and a person’s touch. Furthermore, the single, tactile control panel uses “button” and “slider” elements, similar to that used in touch-screen mobile phones, giving it that distinctive cool and trendy look.

“For Ideal Standard International, e-Vision really represents the next-generation in bathroom solutions and fits perfectly with our vision of bringing the digital age into the bathroom, creating a life space for pleasure and relaxation,” explained David Hamill, Chairman Ideal Standard International. “We’re very excited about this new innovation, which we think will revolutionise the bathroom space and appeal greatly to consumers looking for cutting-edge design, ultra-modern functionality and cool technology applications in their bathroom.”

Great technological design for increased functionality and savings
Different users can immediately obtain personalised settings with a simple touch of the screen. e-Vision offers enhanced safety via controlled temperatures and enables users to consume less water and energy as they receive the perfect flow and temperature almost immediately. However, e-Vision is designed to go much further as it allows for the consolidation of data from water and electricity supply systems to form one integrated control platform. This means that in the future it could also act as the central control point for all items in the bathroom including lights, all water controlled items (including taps, showers, flushing), other digital applications or items that could be networked into the control system (audio-visual systems, telecommunications etc). The platform can also co-exist alongside the traditional mechanical platform in the bathroom.

A revolution in visual design
e-Vision has an ultra-modern design and the control pad graphics play an important design and functional role replacing the traditional mechanical controls in a bathroom and allowing for new product aesthetics with proven functionality. “Artefakt is convinced that digital intelligence will become a key technology for the bathroom in the future. As an integrated part of the home, it will set completely new standards in energy savings and bring an additional level of comfort for daily use. e-Vision clearly demonstrates that a holistic reflection of the future no longer needs to offer electronics just for the sake of electronics”, said Achim Pohl, Artefakt designer.

e-Vision represents a new generation of digitally intelligent products in the bathroom. The state-of-the-art modern design, combined with ambient lighting makes the panel look sleek and trendy. The virtually seamless surface of the fixture also considerably reduces the need for cleaning. In addition, its extremely compact, modularly constructed technology is located behind the control interface, allowing for flexibility on individual design and architectural requirements.
