with ultra-clean architectural lines and minimal optics, the GROHE ‘smartcontrol’ shower system seamlessly completes any bathroom setting. it transcends standardization with the ability to be installed as exposed or concealed variants, with the former available in either a super-rational round or square format. this enables architects, planners and interior designers to fit the sanitary system to their creative vision. adorning a chrome or white-powder-coating finish, the design can be specified with two or three buttons, as well as either a chrome or acrylic glass rainshower. furthermore there is a third installation option, called ‘excealed’, which removes the visible shower rail to only expose the ‘smartcontrol’.
