The appealing design language of Lissé is full of exciting contrasts: basic, clear-cut, geometric shapes and precise radii encounter curving contours, and generous surfaces meet narrow edges. The lever of the fitting tilts upward and tapers, contrasting playfully with its basic, rigidly cylindrical body and flat spout. The black cover below the lever combines with the polished chrome finish to set a different emphasis.
The special operating mechanism that underlines the ornamental design language of Lissé has a smooth, flowing lever movement that makes it extremely easy to use. This is also reflected in the name of the designer fitting. The name Lissé (from the French "lissé" for "smoothed") firstly refers to the "smooth" operation of the lever and secondly, captures the L-shape of the body of the fitting. The "acute accent" (´) on the é invokes the characteristic, upward tilt of the lever design.
