New York, (DATE TK) – Gessi, the world-renowned Italian bath and kitchen fittings company whose products can be found in the world’s most luxurious hotels, spas, yachts, and private residences, announced today their first collaboration with architect David Rockwell and his award-winning firm Rockwell Group. The Inciso Collection of bath fittings and accessories—which will be unveiled in May at ICFF in New York—marks Gessi’s first collection in collaboration with an American designer.
Bringing a new visual language to the contemporary bath-scape, Inciso channels the honesty of traditional craftsmanship. The line’s clean modern forms are consistent with the tradition of Gessi, and is highly customizable, fully flexible, and suitable for several environments. The design of the collection looks to the classic form of early plumbing fixtures and the refined, architectural sensibility of modern metalwork to arrive at the distinguished profile for Inciso. With sculpted contours paired with smooth surfaces and textured patterns, the collection achieves captivating allure in alignment with Gessi’s philosophy of enriching intimate living spaces with beautiful, well-made, highly functional objects.
"The philosophy of our company is expressed by the private wellness concept. It consists of designing and communicating products, concepts, and values which create a wellness culture through enjoyment in the most private areas of the home, transforming utilitarian spaces into places capable of regenerating us every day in the same way private spas do. The Inciso line inaugurates the commitment of Gessi to bring this culture into the North American Bathroom, through a design with Italian flair and American style and know how,” said Gessi founder, Gian Luca Gessi.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Gessi on our first-ever line of fittings and accessories,” said David Rockwell, founder and President of Rockwell Group. “Defined by simplicity and possibility, the Inciso Collection weds modern style with heritage details and finishes that invite touch and discovery.”
The collection is made of solid brass, available in a large number of finishes, including black, nickel and bronze. Inciso can be easily customized by mixing different texture inserts and finishes, providing a wide variety of combinations suitable for any bath environment. Whether in a residential or a commercial setting, the line of bath fixtures coordinates well with sinks, bathtubs, and showers, and complements accessory pieces such as towel bars and soap dispensers. Through the creativity and innovation of both companies, the David Rockwell for Gessi products will rock any setting in style.
