The Supramic material used is created and developed by our teams to allow a thin-edged ceramic that is harder and more durable than regular vitreous. Its geometric precision and thin form create a centerpiece in any bathroom design.  Global Trend Thin A 09h37m49s385The slim toilet seats stand out for their thinness and sleekness. The quality of the material is as close to a ceramic material as possible. It is a high-grade Thermoset plastic that imitates the vitreous feel but is ten times more durable and has a longer lifespan than the usual polypropylene seats.  Global Trend Thin A 09h40m31s971The material and the seats have been tested thousands and thousands of times and cycles to ensure their functionality. The toilet seats sport an ergonomic design adhering to current design principles. It also allows the seats to be more comfortable for longer.  Global Trend Thin A 09h41m31s112The ultrathin rain shower heads and panels have a thinness of fewer than two millimeters across its entire surface.

In India, for example, people are surrounded by dynamism, vibrant energy, noise, some even say constant chaos. However, this is balanced by the inherent foundation of spirituality and calmness of the subcontinent.  Global Trend Thin A 09h36m43s547This concept of speed and slowness is realized in the contemporary, smooth minimalist designs that are accentuated with products of ultra-thinness, quality, and durability.
