Ideal Standard has launched its new Gusto tap range, designed specifically for kitchens. Gusto marks Ideal Standard’s latest expansion into the kitchen sector, offering a versatile, practical and premium solution to its growing portfolio. 

The Gusto collection has been developed and designed with immense attention to detail, supported by over 100 years of knowledge and innovation in brassware, which has placed Ideal Standard firmly at the forefront of the bathroom and washroom sector. These new taps offer a striking Italian aesthetic – provided by design powerhouse Palomba Serafini Associati (PS+A) and its Founder and Chief Design Officer of Ideal Standard Roberto Palomba – helping to create a solution which perfectly complements contemporary kitchens.  

The range is also available in Ideal Standard’s bespoke finishes and PVD (physical vapour deposition) colour options including chrome, silver storm, brushed gold, magnetic grey and brushed copper, enabling it to pair perfectly with a variety of colour palettes as well as offering enhanced protection from everyday wear and tear. 

German-engineered and manufactured in Europe, the collection is built to last with its FirmaFlow® cartridges capable of hundreds of thousands of use cycles. Installation has also been considered when it comes to Gusto, with the entire range featuring EasyFix+ fixations, which are up to 50% faster to install than standard fittings.  

The innovation doesn’t stop at installation though, as Gusto is packed with sustainable technology, such as BlueStart®, which cleverly dispenses only cold water when the tap is opened in the central position, resulting in energy savings of up to 50% and preventing scalding for a cost-efficient, safer mixer. Additionally, the IMX models feature an integrated soap dispenser, helping create a neater kitchen worksurface, while making it simpler to clean hands, which is all important for food preparation.  

Speaking on the range, Stacey Seagrave, Senior PM of Non-Residential Fittings at Ideal Standard, said: “We are really excited for our Gusto launch, as it is a prime example of what we can offer the kitchen sector, combining some of our most innovative technology with the design prowess of Roberto Palomba. 

“The extensive range offers something for everyone and, with the variety of colours on offer can add an extra flair to the kitchen as well as reassurances on reliability and practicality.”  

Offering even more flexibility, Gusto is available in a number of elegant one-hole, two-hole and exposed models, including Gusto Square, Gusto Round, Gusto IMX and Gusto Semi-Pro, all of which feature pull-down and pull-out options as well as dual spray modes. These variations let users easily wash and clean plates and cookware, switching between regular water flows and spray action at the press of a button.
