Round & Flat: Deque by Dornbracht and Sieger

Perennial collaborators Dornbracht and Sieger design are at it again as we near the ides of March. In the case of the Deque faucet, however, the Shakespearian formula gets an ironic reversal as only good tidings can come of a fitting as silky smooth and elegant as Deque. The new piece joins the ranks of unorthodox shapes in faucets as seen last week with Isma’s Kross faucet, and in earlier posts featuring (of course) Dornbracht and Sieger—IMO, the Elemental Spa Collection, and Supernova, just for starters. Not to say that D&S have the market cornered on new forms in water, but just that they often seem to call us all into their ebullient ebb and elegant flow.

Flat is the New Round

Some readers are doubtless familiar with the literary notion of “round” characters as those fictional personages with pronounced and engaging personalities—so much so that they seem more “real” than many-an-actual person. Deque’s unorthodox silhouette deeds it this same sense of vibrant palpability. The faucet has character in spades, in other words. This charisma begins with its low slung profile, moves on to its intriguing projecting spout, takes a detour to dally in the quirky spherical appendage of its single knob operation, dazzles within the shiny chrome of its finish, and lastly luxuriates beneath the gently arcing patter of its rainwater style delivery.

As with the earlier Elements Collection, Deque articulates a feast for the senses—a cornucopia of stimulation for sight, sound, and touch that duplicates the bliss of the spa within arm’s reach.
