20 years of Tara by Dornbracht: A design classic is celebrating its anniversary
When Dornbracht introduced Tara in 1992, two-handle fittings weren't really very trendy; the market was dominated by single-lever mixers. But the progressive concept with the characteristic cross handles quickly became the archetype of modern bath fittings. A book was even dedicated to the fitting for its 10-year anniversary, the publication "TARA: Homage to a Bathroom Fitting and an Archetype" from the publisher Birkhäuser. Even after 20 years, Tara has lost none of its popularity, and with sales of more than a million units it is one of Dornbracht's most-sold fittings.
"Tara is one of our most successful fittings and is largely responsible for Dornbracht's reputation as a trend-setting manufacturer of high-quality fittings and accessories for bath and kitchen," reports CEO Andreas Dornbracht proudly. "Tara stands for the four P’s at Dornbracht: proportionality, precision, progressiveness and perspicacity. Its cross handles combine modernity with a classic design. Tara is puristic and modern. At the same time, it gives you the feeling that it's an old friend. A Tara bathroom built more than 20 years ago is still up to date."
