Zephyr is the result of the subtle blend of French elegance and long smooth curves, directly inspired by the American artistic movement of the 1930s called The Streamline.
This movement, also called the Ocean Liner Style, is characterized by an obsessive search for the aesthetics of speed and aerodynamics; it can also be considered as the late child of The Art Deco Movement.
Raymond Loewy, Donald Deskey, Henry Dreyfuss, Brook Stevens, Norman Bel Geddes or Walter Dorwin Teague were the initiators. This small group of men, all self-taught, had no idea that they were gathering together some of the most famous designers of the 20th century.
They offered the general public everyday objects such as transistors, alarm clocks, irons or toasters, inspired by the aerodynamic shapes of the latest technological marvels: planes, cars, trains or boats.
More than a simple range, Zephyr is a true technical feat that has called for a great deal of humility and a questioning of our know-how, giving birth to forms never before seen in the field of faucets and fittings.
Since its creation, Horus has developed a unique expertise and know-how in the manufacturing of high-end faucets and fittings, a “savoir-faire” that is expressed in particular, in the realization of handcrafted finishes.
Zephyr offers a selection of innovative customary and decorative finishes that are in perfect harmony with its universe.
