Committed to creating elements that bring the organic beauty, versatility, complexity and utility of water into the home, Aquabrass – a Canadian bath and kitchen fixtures manufacturer – debuts the MARMO collection in collaboration with Italian designers Antonio Gardoni and Federico Castelli.
The MARMO collection, celebrates the elegance and intricacies of marble. Sourced from Italian and Spanish quarries, skilled artisans interpreted the natural marble material through a contemporary vision, integrating a structural, patent-pending manufacturing process that conceals the faucet mechanism within the marble encasing. The end result is a seamlessly refined and timeless design.
“For 30 years, we’ve delivered products that not only push the envelope from a design perspective, but provide definitive user-friendly functionality,” said, Tony Masecchia, CEO of Aquabrass. “We continue this focus with our newest introduction, MARMO, which is the perfect combination of metal, stone, water and quality engineering. Each piece produced is one-of-a-kind due to the natural characteristics of the stone, yet the collection remains elegant, pure, geometrical and well suited to fit a range of décor from classic to modern.”
MARMO will be the first collection introduced into the new Aquabrass Black Series line, an exclusive program offering high-end designer fixture collections available through a select network of North American authorized dealers.
The MARMO collection, launching December 2016, features 23 components, including lavatory and bath faucets, shower and tub fittings and accessories. The collection is offered in two marble finishes (Bianco Carrara and Nero
Marquina). In addition to standard polished chrome, 16 custom plating finishes ranging from sparkling rose gold to black nickel are available, all of which are produced on-site at Aquabrass’s Montreal facility. Additionally, two spout options have been offered for select models: curved for a contemporary appearance and an L-shaped spout for an urban feel.
