The Nice basin tap, designed by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez for Fantini, has been given the sought-after Editor’s Awards at this year’s ICFF in New York, within the category of Kitchen & Bath.
The tap’s design was originally crafted to pay homage to the iconic 1970’s Fantini collection: i Balocchi, the merits of which have been regularly recognised across the design industry. The original colourful collection was given a modern and minimalist twist by Thun and Rodriguez through the incorporation of transparent elements which reflect the appearance of natural water.
Nice’s characterful design will add a pop of colour and excitement to the bathroom. Its knob control is made from a jewel-tone methacrylate, which is initially crafted into a translucent cylinder, to give the piece a pleasantly smooth surface, while the addition of bold colourful sections creates unique and fascinating optical effects.Mattheo Thun | matteothun.com
