Hopfoot to attend the AIA show in San Francisco on April 30 – May 2

Johann Lau, Business Development Manager of Hopfoot, will be attending the AIA (American Instisute of Architects) Show in San Francisco at the Moscone Center on Spril 30th – May 2nd.

Experience a New Exciting Way to Enjoy the Refreshing Flow of Clean, Crisp Water; Feel Mesmerized by the Display of LED Cascading-Waterfall Effect of the Frisone C3 Reflex Series.

Hopfoot, provider of high-end Italian interior décor products, is proud to present their Frisone C3 Reflex line. The new C3 Reflex Mixer Series symbolizes Frisone’s winning combination of creativity, results gleaned from substantial investments in cutting edge technologies and the know-how developed from over thirty years of passionate pursuit in the industry. Thanks to advancements in combining the effects of color-and-water through recent developments in LED technology, the natural, crystal clear properties of water are enhanced by Frisone’s inclusion of these exciting technologies which serves as a simple and elegant indicator of temperature. This low energy consumption technology presents an intuitive, elegant way for anyone to immediately gauge the temperature of the flow of water; all done in a striking chromatic display [red for hot, blue for cold and the myriad temperature-shades in-between, as one operates the mixer mechanism].  The C3 Reflex lighting mechanism’s elegant and practical design requires no electrical supply or unsightly cable: the simple inertia of flowing water activates two micro-turbines which in turn generate all the required energy via an internal electronic logic board. Due to its small footprint and the extremely easy assembly, this mechanism may be placed directly under the mixer’s supporting surface without interfering, in any way, with the empirical “purity” of the design.


The M ½ fasteners for the flexible pipes are situated in the upper part of the unit whereas the electronic connector, positioned in the lower part, allows the mechanism to connect directly to the mixer spout. The C3 Reflex system is equipped with two spherical stop-valves with easy inspection filters (which are to be installed before the mixer) guaranteeing ongoing and normal operation of the electrical generators, even if debris is present.

To LEED or not to LEED

The trend for architects and designers recently is whether to become LEED certified, or not. So what exactly is LEED, you ask? It stands for The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and is under the umbrella of US Green Building Council and according to their webiste “LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.”

I recently found this survey, the 3rd Annual Green Building by Allen Matkins, Constructive Technologies Group (CTG) and the Green Building Insider reveals surprising results regarding green construction, from Dexigner. They state, that “the survey, completed by more than 900 respondents, addressed current attitudes toward green building, its risks, costs, certification processes and trends. The survey, which was completed in December 2008, gauges the opinions of professionals involved in green building and LEED certification. The majority of respondents endorsed building green, with 93.4 percent of survey participants agreeing that it is worth the time and effort. However, despite this endorsement of building green, 66.2 percent (down from 76 percent in the 2007 survey) agreed that it was worth obtaining official LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

These results suggest that while building industry respondents almost unanimously indicated that it is worth the time and effort to build green, LEED certification was perceived as attractive by just two-thirds of green building supporters. ”

So bottom line, it costs $400 to take the exam, now up to you to determine whether it’s worth it.
