In Lindesnes, at the southernmost point of the Norwegian coastline, a 34-meter long monolithic form is half-sunken in the sea. The building, which is reminiscent of a periscope, is Europe’s first underwater restaurant, Under.
At Under, guests can dine five meters below the water surface with a panoramic view of the North Atlantic Ocean. Now, this experience becomes even more special as, in the bathrooms, GROHE has installed a number of its first 3D metal-printed taps, the Atrio Icon 3D.
Under is a unique place. Outside, there is the rough Norwegian landscape and then you dive into the restaurant with its fascinating atmosphere and lighting.
“To eat at the bottom of the sea with this incredible view is really a unique experience. I’m proud that we can add another magical moment with our 3D metal-printed taps GROHE Atrio Icon 3D,” says Jonas Brennwald, Deputy CEO Grohe AG & CEO LIXIL Water Technology EMENA.
“In Norwegian, the word 'under' also means 'wonder'. This is what we have created here, and we are also proud to be one of the first to have the wonder of a 3D metal-printed faucet from GROHE in our fantastic venue”, explains Stig Ubostad, owner of Under.
GROHE Icon 3D is GROHE’s first line of 3D metal-printed taps – a reinterpretation of its existing collections Atrio and Allure Brilliant. Known for innovation and technology leadership, the global brand embraces the still-emerging technology of 3D metal-printing to push the boundaries of technology and design by creating shapes which didn’t seem possible in the past.
The ultra-thin spout of the GROHE Atrio Icon 3D and the hollow interior of GROHE Allure Brilliant Icon 3D make the water flow look like a magical, optical illusion. This radical reduction of the design to an absolute minimum not only saves valuable resources, but also offers a new interactive experience of water.
