Toilets are not the same across borders. In the Nordic countries most toilet pans are supplied by Ifö og Porsgrund. Now Pressalit launches its award winning toilet seat SWAY in a version that will fit the Nordic pans. The new seat is called SWAY Norden.
Harmonious and feather-light lines
The characteristic curving shape is the same, and so is the award winning designer. Pressalit’s own in house-designer Lars Herold has created the new variant SWAY Norden with inate understanding of the simple, Nordic look. The toilet seat consequently delights the eye, no matter which pan it is fitted to.
Modeled by hand
With a background in architecture and a Master’s degree in Industrial Design, Lars Herold has designed everything from medical devices and street furniture to professional audio equipment. This sense of form and aesthetics, technical details, quality and attention is useful in his work with development and design for Pressalit today.
– It was my ambition to create a simple and expressive design in a Nordic idiom – a toilet seat that is both decorative and comfortable. Many hand-made sketch models and computer-generated 3D-models were required to get the curved line exactly right. The completed design is the perfect meeting of masculine rigour and female curves, says the designer, Lars Herold.
I addition to its keen, innovative design, the SWAY-range obviously benefits from the classical, integrated features ”Soft-close” and ”Lift-off”. A gentle push closes the seat softly, and it is possible to remove the seat easily for a thorough cleaning. The seats are through colour, so scratches do not show up, and Pressalit offer a 10 year warranty.
SWAY is your new designer seat
Pressalit has a tradition of launching surprising new shapes and functions, but this must never be at the expense of comfort. Through Herolds deliberated design have been created four seats with a gentle upward arching shape, which allow water to run off. This makes the seats comfortable to sit on with the cover up or down. The four variants cover a wide range of pan types and are therefore easy to integrate in any attractive bathroom solution.
Red Dot Award
The SWAY range won a Red Dot Award for its design in 2016 and the jury emphasised the combination of the pure Nordic design with the beautiful emblem on the side in stainless steel.
