Irvine, CA –With the introduction of ROHL’s Palladian Series ADA compliant grab bars, safety is no longer sacrificed for style. The addition of these well-designed accessories offers an elegant way to achieve piece-of-mind while still maintaining the luxurious look expected from ROHL.
The design of the grab bars, as is the total series, is based on the work of Andrea Palladio, the 16th century Italian architect, creator of the Palladian window and proponent of honest classical architecture. Blending the best of classical proportion with the flourish of great Italian fashion, this look is the answer to the renewed love of European Colonial and Old World design.
“Working closely with our Italian partners in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, we were able to take inspiration from the great Palladio,” said Lou Rohl, ROHL COO and Managing Partner. “This series features a sculptural design that is reminiscent of the master’s work and has been carried through to the elegant accessories including the grab bars. Aging with elegance was an important tenet of Palladio’s work and is for us as well.”
The grab bars are available in a full range of finishes, allowing the design to work with rustic carved stone looks, artisan-created hand painted and hammered metals, as well as traditional ceramic, glass sinks and vessel bowls.
The Palladian Series was originally designed for The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California – named the “Number Two” U.S. Resort and one of the “Top 25” Resorts Worldwide in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. The luxury beach resort, reminiscent of a seaside Italian village, boasts all imported products from the Italian countryside. Each ROHL grab bar was designed and produced in the country of Palladio’s birth. Now anyone can bring this luxury design into their home.
