Fisher & Paykel has introduced a new graphite finish to add a sense of luxury to the laundry space.

Designed to match, Fisher & Paykel’s washing machines and dryers complement one another in functionality to guarantee complete fabric care for all garments. These new models feature Steam Refresh technology that can remove the most stubborn of stains while being gentle on garments.

For washing, the 20-minute steam cycle deodorises and de-wrinkles fabrics, leaving them fresh, wrinkle-free, and ready to wear. It also reaches higher temperatures than standard wash cycles, killing bacteria and removing allergens. 

Meanwhile, the dryer uses heat pump technology to gently and effectively dry clothes at low temperatures. This technology ensures moisture is condensed so no venting is required.

According to Fisher & Paykel product manager for laundry, Clare Goldstein, the trend towards black started with tapware and doorhandles, and has now expanded to major appliances.

“There has been an increase in customer demand for options beyond the classic white washer and dryer pair. The new graphite colour brings in a modern and minimalist look and feel, while providing a nice contrast to the traditional white on white laundry,” she told Appliance Retailer.

“The graphite is a neutral yet timeless colour, and pairs well any type of décor. Families are spending an increasing amount of time in the laundry, and they want it to look just as great as the rest of the house.”
