Leading French bathroom and kitchen fittings designer THG Paris has collaborated on a second collection with renowned interior designer Timothy Corrigan: the West Coast selection of mixer taps.
Corrigan’s design philosophy combines European elegance and Californian style comfort, and in particular, the designs in this collection were inspired by the glamour and elegance of 1920’s Tiffany, Cartier and Christofle jewellery designs. Returning to this period of lyrical and detailed designs has made an evident effect on West Coast collection; black or white onyx or a Guilloché metal pattern inlay sits snugly within the cross handle of the tap reflects the lavish culture and style of the decade. While the Guilloché metal pattern — a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material via engine turning – was particularly popular during the 1920’s. The addition a belted waist and finial details on the handles and spout again reflect Corrigan’s European design ethos, while continually adding further layers of luxury.
Timothy Corrigan commented: “I have always been so impressed by the beautiful design and extraordinary attention to detail that one finds in all of the work of THG Paris that one cannot but compare them to jewellery for the bathroom. For me, beauty and detail are a basic part of the THG Paris DNA. These new lines mix the best of both worlds – both Grand Central and West Coast reflect a combination of French classicism and All-American boldness and optimism.”THG Paris | thg-paris.com
