Triflow Concepts manufactures all of its products in the UK and excels in producing high quality brassware found in some of the most illustrious homes and hotels around the world. The Triflow is the world's first three-way tap, delivering not only hot and cold water but also filtered water, through a dedicated waterway from the same spout. This groundbreaking development has been one of the most significant changes to the industry and its strong patent remains unchallenged.
To celebrate our 30th anniversary Triflow commissioned eminent architect Zaha Hadid to design two new models. We are extremely proud of this collaboration and identify with this architect who consistently pushes the boundaries of architecture and design. The competition with 100% Design comes directly from this tradition of innovation and is an expression of Triflow’s roots and achievements in British brassware manufacturing.
