Introducing the Tesi collection

Offering a versatile and timeless solution for your home, the Tesi collection comes complete with a selection of matching toilets, basins, taps and a bath, to transform your bathroom into an enjoyable space. Designed by Robin Levien, one of the UK's most successful product designers, the modern shapes and use of cutting-edge technology will fit perfectly with your lifestyle.

Ideal Standard Tesi suite

Let's take a closer look at just some of the products that make up the Ideal Standard Tesi collection:

Tesi toilets

We stock 4 different Tesi toilets, including 2 x close coupled toilets, a back to wall toilet and wall hung option. All models feature the multi-award-winning Aquablade® flush technology, which makes Ideal Standard toilets cleaner, quieter and smarter than the rest:

  • Cleaner: With the flush channel positioned close to the top of the bowl, AquaBlade® technology means 95% of the surface area is rinsed
  • Quieter: Aquablade® is proven to be at least 25% quieter than most conventional flushes
  • Smarter: Aquablade® technology uses water more effectively and efficiently than standard flushes

Tesi basins

To go with your toilet, Tesi basins are available in 2 different widths, as well as a choice of pedestal, semi pedestal and semi recessed designs. Made from high quality glazed ceramic with a pleasing rounded shape, Tesi basins look effortlessly stylish and are easy to maintain.

Tesi taps

Round shapes and angular lines combine to give you a basin mixer tap that not only complements the Tesi suite perfectly but is also extremely easy to use with its single lever design. Available in a choice of sizes, this Robin Levien-designed tap is fitted with a flow regulator, limiting the supply to 5 litres per minute. This saves on water without impacting on performance.
