NEW CASTLE, Del. and LAS VEGAS, May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Speakman, the premier maker of high-performance shower heads and plumbing products for over 145 years, today announced a collaboration with Wynn Resorts to create custom bath fixtures for the Wynn Palace Cotai, which is scheduled to open this year. Wynn Design & Development Executive Vice President Roger Thomas, who led the Speakman collaboration for Wynn Resorts, will share insight into the initiative and an advance look at the stunning new products during a presentation at Speakman's booth #4157 at HDExpo at 3:30 p.m. PDT on May 4th.
The result of the Speakman-Wynn collaboration is The Opera Collection by Roger Thomas, launching exclusively through Speakman at HDExpo 2016. Available first for hospitality customers, the product line will be available to commercial residential and consumer home customers, exclusively through Speakman, later in 2016.
A magnificent new $4.1 billion floral-themed resort, Wynn Palace Cotai is the third luxury resort from Wynn Resorts on Macau. The property's 28-story hotel features gaming spaces, an opulent spa and salon, luxury retail and dining, and 1,700 exquisitely furnished rooms and suites, whose baths are fitted with fixtures from the 24-product Opera Collection by Roger Thomas.
The Speakman-made fixtures showcase exceptional quality and beautiful engineering in rich polished chrome and golden brass finishes. The range includes signature Speakman Anystream® technology performance with custom 8-jet shower heads, as well as handheld shower heads, door pulls, solid-brass faucets and valve handles, bidet handles and valves, and bath accessories such as towel racks and tissue holders. All faucet and valve operations are ADA-compliant, and product markings are in English and Chinese to meet the needs of guests at this resort location.
"Speakman's shower head has been my brand of choice for 35 years, in every hotel I've designed with Steve Wynn," said Wynn Design & Development Executive Vice President Roger Thomas. "When it came to selecting a partner for the entire custom bath fitting range for Wynn Palace Cotai, the Speakman team immediately understood the unique design vision, discerning customer, and unwavering commitment to quality that are hallmarks of the Wynn brand. From the start of our relationship, Speakman has shown both the brand empathy and the engineering rigor to meet our standards and exceed our expectations. We look forward to these custom fixtures being a part of an outstanding guest experience when we open our doors in Cotai."
The Speakman-Wynn relationship also demonstrates Speakman's capability to deliver a high volume of ultra-high quality and completely custom product lines to a major hospitality brand, which requires nimble sourcing, flexible manufacturing capacity, and meticulous process management.
"Innovation, timeless beauty, and superior quality are at the heart of the Speakman brand—and the core values that we share with Roger and his team at Wynn," said Speakman Vice President of Product and Marketing Kristin Barclay. "We are honored to have been chosen as the exclusive partner for bath fixture design for Wynn Palace Cotai, and proud to be part of a collaboration with Roger's incredibly talented and creative team."
