A kinked hose and a bent pipe have been reinterpreted as a piece of interior plumbing hardware in the form of the Ceramica Flaminia Fold Faucet. It has been manufactured of a gleaming chrome material, sculpted with smooth contours and a formal fullness, with unexpected features interrupting its flow.
Lorenzo Damiani designed three models of the tap that might be used for bathtubs, washroom sinks and kitchen basins. A pair of these exhibits not one but two distinctive creases in the strong metal, reducing the openings in the tubes to slender slits through which the water must pass. This affects the shape of the stream dispensed and provides a playful twist to the polished aesthetic of the fixtures.
The Ceramica Flaminia Fold Faucet is accompanied by towel racks and hooks, a toilet paper holder, a toilet bowl cleaner and a shelf to match for a whimsically winsome collection.
