Last year, Tim Cook-backed shower startup Nebia announced today that it wish to raise a Series A led by the faucet-maker Moen. This time, we’re ascertain the outcome of the the exclusive partnership — the startup’s third-generation shower intelligence. The product, called Nebia by Moen, is launching on Kickstarter for $199 and will retail for $269 for the shower front and wand.
The startup’s recent product is by far its least-expensive offering hitherto, and after a side-by-side shower test conducted by yours truly, I can say there isn’t a major difference between the Nebia by Moen and the company’s Nebia Spa Shower 2.0, something that were likely to compile continued sales of the last-gen shower, which retails for $499, a little of a challenge.
The brand-new hardware has earned its brand-new premium degree mainly by a simplified intend and being routed through Moen’s supply chain. The water droplets are bigger, there are fewer nozzles and it all in all feels a bit more like a traditional shower than previous acts. The aesthetics of the brand-new provide are more mass-market, but it still feels distinctly similar to the design of the last two contemporaries. The produce comes in three colours and users can buy the shower head on its own for $160 during the course of its Kickstarter campaign.
Former CEO Philip Winter has stepped down into the role of CMO and chairwoman, while fellow co-founder Gabe Parisi-Amon has taken under the monarchies as CEO. I chit-chat with Winter at length on the broader hardware market and whether shoppers were willing to fork over money for a payment shower event.
