"Franz Viegener's Premium Collection of Architectural Faucets" 

Franz Viegener is a modern amalgam of South American passion and German engineering producing sculptural faucets and bath fittings that synthesize architecture, geometric forms and fluidity. The high-end, luxury brand recently expanded its offerings to include a new kitchen line, new finishes and updates to some of their most iconic designs.

 Hand-crafted by artisans in Buenos Aires, each and every product is painstakingly engineered, machined, polished, assembled and rigorously tested to ensure the quality synonymous with this 100 year old company’s name. 

Innovative design elements including concealed screws and integrated, flush aerators give their products a sleek, seamless quality but with aerospace engineering. 

With accolades such as three consecutive GOOD DESIGN® Awards from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd. and back-to-back “Best in Show” honors at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair as well as Dwell on Design, the brand continues to exceed the discerning standards of architects and designers worldwide.

*NEW* Kitchen Collection 


The brand’s entrée into the kitchen category, the new Franz Viegener kitchen faucet is the home chef’s trusted second-in-command: a precision-engineered kitchen essential designed to meet the needs of everyone from an amateur baker to a seasoned chef de cuisine. The Franz Viegener Kitchen Collection is available in the standard-sized and in the larger pro-style faucet. The faucet’s powerful performance is bolstered by elegantly curved modern lines, while its inherently utilitarian nature is elegantly integrated into a contemporary design that recalls the professional-grade kitchen in the home. Available finishes: polished chrome, polished and brushed nickel (PVD), polished and brushed gold (PVD), polished rose gold (PVD), satin black (PVD), and polished and brushed unlacquered brass. 

PVD Satin Black 

Franz Viegener’s latest addition to its exceptional range of finishes — a distinctive, new PVD satin black —is a unique, innovative take on a recently popular architectural finish. In contrast to traditional powder-coating, this new rich, satin black has been achieved through a complex PVD process. The result is a combination of a new-generation-classic beauty and modern functionality. With an inviting, tactile sheen and true depth of tone, our PVD satin black finish combines striking, contemporary design with durability and longevity. 

Konic and Konic Cross

A beguiling blend of balance and proportion, the new Konic faucet is a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional favorites that’s firmly in keeping with Franz Viegener’s expert engineering and design- forward aesthetic. The aptly-named faucet is an artful blend of linear and curved features with flared, subtly expanding conical bases that taper into attenuated peaks supporting squared fixtures. The slightly rounded tip of the faucet echoes the geometric shape of its base, which is matched in the design of the smooth levers and optional cross handles. 

Classic 

The Classic Faucet features a stately, high-profile design with a gently squared gooseneck spout and coordinating lever handles. Reverse beveled accents evoke a sense of both opulence and elegant simplicity, striking just the right balance between crisp, clean features and intricate trimmings for a contemporary interpretation of a classic design. Available in the current range of finishes — polished chrome, polished and brushed nickel (PVD), polished and brushed gold (PVD), polished rose gold (PVD), polished and brushed unlacquered brass, and satin black (PVD).
