TOTO Introduces the Connelly Suite

Oct 22, 2013

TOTO’s new Traditional design Connelly Suite is inspired by the timeless sophistication of classic Hollywood imbued with the curvilinear aesthetic of the Arte Deco period – known for its bold linear symmetry, lavish designs, and opulent style. This high-style Traditional collection’s clean lines and bold geometric shapes offer a simple yet sophisticated design statement, for a clean, uncluttered look. At the same time, the approachable Connelly Suite incorporates modern touches for a look that will remain fresh and appealing for years to come.

 

Connelly Lavatory Faucet

An example of TOTO’s inclusive design philosophy – providing ease of use for all ages – the sophisticated faucet’s lever handles serve as a graceful counterpoint to the vertically detailed, gently flared bases, which lends a tactile element to the fixture’s design. The curve of the spout against the crisp lines of the base creates an elegant contrast of fluid and structural design, giving this faucet a substantial stylish look that evokes memories of a time gone by, but it is engineered for today’s active households.

 

This elegant lavatory faucet is available in a widespread or single-lever option. Its forged brass construction valves with ceramic disk cartridges exceed the industry standard for longevity, improving temperature and flow control for superior performance throughout the product’s lifetime. Its widespread faucet comes with preassembled handles, which makes installation faster and more convenient.

 

All TOTO innovations are in service to people, the planet, and the water supply. The WaterSense labeled Connelly lavatory faucet consumes a responsible 1.5 gallons per minute without sacrificing an ounce of performance. This high efficiency lavatory faucet is available in a variety of finishes, including Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, and Brushed Nickel. Its superior performance and quality craftsmanship will provide homeowners with a worry-free ownership experience.

 

Connelly Dual Flush High-Efficiency Toilet

This elegant toilet’s skirted bowl is supported with a distinctive column, which echoes the rich elemental design of traditional American furniture that resonates in the tank and lid, creating a pleasing coherence to the overall design statement.This sense of harmony is further enhanced by the bowl’s bold geometric tank, which supports a generous lid that has been molded into a shelf –creating newfound space for toiletries, tissues, or other bathroom necessities.

 

The inclusive-design Connelly toilet is 17” from base to seat top, making it ergonomically correct height for a person to comfortably sit down and rise from it with ease. It is available in Cotton, Colonial White, Sedona Beige, Bone, and Ebony, with trip lever finishes available in Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, among others.

The Connelly toilet’s inner beauty arises from its Dual-Max Cyclone Flushing System. TOTO’s People-First Innovation design philosophy advances engineering that solves people’s real world needs. For example, a common complaint that many dual-flush HET owners have is the need to flush, then brush the bowl to remove streaking after every solid stop. TOTO’s new Dual-Max Cyclone Flushing System uses bio-mimicry to put an end to “flush ‘n brush.”

 

 

Inspired by cyclones in nature, TOTO engineers harnessed the power of gravity and water to spin away waste. To achieve their vision, they designed a seamless bowl interior with a concave rim to channel high-speed water jets for superior bowl and rim cleansing action. Each flush spins away debris, matter, and bacteria, which reduces the time needed to clean the unit.

 

To complete their inventive design, TOTO engineers coated the rim and bowl with SanaGloss, the company’s nano-technology glaze that seals the porcelain with an ionized barrier creating a super slippery, non-porous surface that repels waste and bacteria. When protected by SanaGloss, the water that rinses the bowl and rim as the toilet flushes helps to remove stains, residue, scaling, and lime buildup. Invisible organisms, including bacteria and molds, also are eliminated. Owners’ won’t need harsh detergents, which are expensive and harmful to the environment.

 

With these People-First innovations to the two-piece Connelly Dual-Flush HETs’ bowl design in place, TOTO engineers reduced its consumption to enhance indoor water conservation—1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) for solid waste and 0.9 gpf for liquid. Averaging solid and liquid stops over the course of a day, the average flush for this elegant HET is 1.0 gpf.

 

Connelly Undermount Lavatory

The Connelly Undermount Lavatory is characterized by generous square design with the elegant, sophisticated lines that typify the glamorous suite. It measures 15” by 15” and is an example of TOTO Total Design with its inclusive height installation options. Its deep basin reduces water’s splashing, and its SanaGloss glaze saves homeowners time cleaning as the super-slippery surface repels bacteria and soap debris. It is available in Cotton, Colonial White, Sedona Beige, Bone, and Ebony.
