GROHE's German-Engineering Meets American-Inspired Design with Launch of Parkfield

Feb 27, 2013, 08:00 ET from GROHE

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, GROHE launched its Parkfield line that will be available exclusively in the American market. GROHE designers created a unique line for the American homeowner that celebrates "American Traditional" with GROHE's unmistakable commitment to modern functionality.


The line is a great way to modernize a bathroom while still keeping a natural and relaxed feel. Looking at the Parkfield faucet, users will be comforted by the same shapes and swells that they see in nature appearing right in their bathroom. Coming in both a Brushed Nickel and deep, even-layered Chrome finish, the lever of the Parkfield faucet has a fluid form that is reminiscent of the shape and curves of a leaf, while the bottom of the faucet resembles the shape of water droplet about to fall from the leaf unto the ground.

"The GROHE design team wanted to create a line specifically for the US consumers that reflects a more traditional design aesthetic," says Paul Flowers, senior vice president of design for GROHE. "Inspired by nature, the Parkfield line is a more welcome and softer line to evoke feelings of relaxation in the bathroom."

The design shares the grace and functionality of the natural world. The increased volume of the lever gives the faucet a more tactile feel that improves usability and, set to precisely 7 degrees, invites interaction while boldly communicating the GROHE brand DNA.

Along with innovative design and advanced technology, GROHE is committed to functional perfection in water delivery as well. GROHE's German-Engineered Parkfield line incorporates these GROHE proprietary technologies:

  • GROHE SilkMove® - provides smooth, precise action of the ceramic cartridge technology for an average of 14-20 years for a family of four
  • GROHE EcoJoy® - provides integrated water-saving technologies that restrict flow rates, allowing you to reduce water consumption without sacrificing on performance or design. The GROHE Parkfield faucets (1.5 GPM) and shower products (2.0 GPM) are WaterSense approved, resulting in less environmental impact and reduced running costs

GROHE products are sold through designer showrooms nationwide and select online retailers. The Parkfield line starts at $198 for a bathroom centerset faucet. For more information, retail pricing and to find local showrooms, visit
