“Eurocube Semi Pro is the result of the ongoing demand of home chefs and amateur cooks who desire professional-grade faucets in their kitchens without sacrificing sophisticated design elements,” noted Dixon. This new product combines the functionality of the popular GROHE K7 Semi Professional faucet with the company’s geometric Eurocube design. The high-style design was inspired by the modern cubism trend, and every element of the faucet is cubical, down to down to details such as the lever cutout and cubical spray face.

GROHE is the only manufacturer to offer a cube-inspired semi pro faucet complete with dual spray settings, rocker-diverter, a 360-degree swivel arm and a forward-rotating lever for anti-backsplash.

Since the release of the original Essence faucet in 2006, minimalist design trends have become more prevalent while modern technology has paved the way for new innovations, leading the GROHE design team to craft Essence NEW. “The new 28mm cartridge inside Essence NEW allowed us to build a smaller body for a more delicate look,” explained Dixon.

Additional new features include extended comfort height, a solid metal spray, pull-out dual spray with toggle function and an integrated temperature limiter that can be individually set to the desired maximum water temperature, reducing the risk of scalding.
