The most perceptive consumers are expressing the need for a return to authenticity, and a desire to surround themselves with products that exude a feeling of reliability, true depth, and quality. They want products perfected over a long time with a purposeful aesthetic that arouses emotions. Gessi’s goal was to conceive a unique line of products that could fully embody the emotions of the skillful specifics of old era brassware manufacturers while making it fresh and contemporary by infusing it with modern architectural taste and the most advanced metal processing technology. To leave an impressive mark, typical of a global style leader, Gessi looked to the designers that had attained the most outstanding achievements in the application of warm-modern and elegantly industrial aesthetics in the design of interiors and objects, establishing a collaboration with architect David Rockwell and his firm The Rockwell Group. The result of the creative collaboration between Gessi and David Rockwell is the amazing Inciso collection of bath fittings and accessories.
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, Inciso line of bath fixtures coordinates well with sinks, bathtubs, and showers, and complements the accessory pieces such as towel bars and soap dispensers. Through the creativity and innovation of both companies, the David Rockwell for Gessi suite of products interprets a uniquely American ethos for today’s bath. Bringing a new visual language to the contemporary bath-scape, Inciso channels the honesty of traditional craftsmanship and the American spirit. The collection of faucets and accessories designed by David Rockwell for Gessi creates a new design language for the contemporary bathroom. The line’s clean modern forms is consistent with the tradition of Gessi, and is highly customizable, fully flexible, suitable for many environments - both residential and hospitality. The formal gestures of early plumbing fixtures and the refined, architectural sensibility of modern metalwork inspired the distinguished profile. With sculpted contours paired with smooth surfaces and textured patterns, the collection achieves captivating allure in alignment with Gessi’s philosophy, which is to enrich intimate living spaces with beautiful, well-made objects that remain reliably functional.
Inciso is a warm, modern line with subtle and elegant industrial details, it marks Gessi’s first collection by an American designer.
