Simple, round-edged backplates secure the Functional towel rod. The reduction of the backplate into its essential form recalls the beliefs of Le Corbusier that function is inherently beautiful. While most popular in the sizes below, the rods can be ordered in any length, and in metal as well as glass. Longer dimensions will be provided with a center post. A comprehensive suite of aesthetically related bath hardware is also available, including towel rings, paper holders, and robe hooks. The hardware is produced in twelve Nanz plated and patinated finishes.
