The complete Vector Collection “celebrates architectural purity with strong lines that guide the eye throughout the bathroom and create a visual experience from every angle,” the company says.
“It’s always a thrill to see how beautifully Speakman executes my vision,” says Thomas, who is commonly recognized for his decorative work in product design and is best known for his 40-year-plus career as vice president of design for Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. “I resisted the urge to embellish these designs in order to capture their most pure and simple form,” the designer adds. “I love how these products, second-to-none in functionality and durability, help turn a bathroom into an enveloping six-star experience.”
Vector is a wide-ranging bathroom collection that includes lavatory faucets, Roman tub faucet controls, towel racks, showerheads, and accessories. The faucets come with three handle styles that perfectly complement the low-arching spout: keystone handles in a minimal cylindrical look with a keyhole; lever handles that provide a feeling of levity with a lightweight design that the company says is comfortable in the hand; and cross handles depicting a plus symbol that pays homage to Speakman’s first plumbing fixtures.
Vector showerheads are available in a 2.5-, 2.0-, or 1.75-gallons-per-minute flow rate to comply with differing requirements. “In creating this collection, we worked directly with Roger and his team,” says Speakman’s design manager Jeff Harwanko. “Based on his hand drawings, sketches and concepts, we brought the complete line of products to life.”
The collection is available in polished chrome, brushed bronze and matte black, while additional specialty finishes are available upon request for large projects. Vector is the second collaboration Thomas has done for the more than 150-year-old company that says it pioneered the invention of the modern showerhead.
“Hospitality design often leads the way in innovating form and function, especially in the bathroom,” says Adam Horwitz, general manager of Speakman. “This collection is a great example of that trend, which can easily translate to residential bath applications as well.”
