Mina, the quality of recycled glass for the REvitrum collection

Since the 1950s, Mina has been family run and committed to combining the experience and craftsmanship efficiency with a taste for the design, certified industrial quality and the link with the raw material. In 1998, the company then decided to produce an entire range of taps completely made of stainless steel, a material that has now become the brand’s mainstay. 

Now, Mina has taken on another challenge, i.e. dressing stainless steel with reused glass details: REvitrum. The company's new proposal of taps is another expression of industrial tailoring. 

The aim is to give recycled printed glass sheets a second life and regenerate them with a craft processing that curves them and adapts them to the shapes of the stainless steel rods offered by Mina. 

Therefore, glass and steel come together and become a material that is modelled and takes shape. It is a custom production aimed at embellishing the rooms with vintage industrial details while keeping the clean lines and formal rigor typical of the brand. 

Every single piece is accompanied by a document certifying the origin and sees the craft experience combined with the strength of the industrial process take on an eco-sustainable soul. So, the company decided to associate 100% recyclable stainless steel with a reused material such as printed glass, which comes from glassmakers, out of production slabs, but also from the broken glass of a retro door. 

Once again, the company emphasises the quality underlying the high-end taps by Mina, its environmental responsibility and the contribution that everybody can give to the growth of a circular economy.
