5mm is one of the most successful lines from Rubinetterie Treemme. The 5mm name was given to this collection because every single component, from the body, to the lever, all the way to the spout – all measure five millimeters in thickness.
The 5mm is the thinnest faucet in the world. Not only is this faucet stunning by virtue of originality and design, but it also produces an efficient water flow. The fact that it can generate such an impressive flow from such a thin channel is an engineering feat in itself.
The cutting edge lines of the unique design, combined with superior Stainless Steel materials ensures an innovative aesthetic, and at the same time, it’s efficiency is a testament to the company’s environmentally conscious attitude.
The use of a single thickness for all the elements that make up the faucet; from the body, to the spout and to the lever, make the 5mm design exquisitely light and delicate. Truly unique on the market. The end product is a harmonious balance between engineering and design.
The refined, simple yet sophisticated lines make 5mm one of Rubinetterie Treemme’s most exclusive collections, and it has received numerous international awards in the design sector over the years: Compasso D’Oro, Design Plus, German Design Award, ADI design Award, ADI Index, Etico Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award.
