Seems like there's something in the stars to align the talents of kitchen and bath fittings manufacturer Graff and designer Davide Oppizzi. And I say that not only because of the curious confluence of double letters in Graff and Oppizzi, nor solely for their previous collaboration on the celestial stylings of the Luna Faucet, but in light of the wondrous new Ametis.

Davide Oppizzi's Ametis Faucet Features Gracious Curves and Futuristic Functionality
Designer Oppizzi has been quoted revealing that Ametis' signature curvature represents the idea that life is a cycle. I can think of no other metaphor so apt for the recurrent, unceasing, and regenerative flow of water. And besides that, it just intuitively makes sense.
Maybe it's because of the way descending water follows a natural corkscrewing flow, but something about Ametis just feels right. Oppizzi has crafted this full brass faucet to appear as dynamic and energetic as a helix of DNA, or a fully-coiled cobra primed to strike, or droplets of water snaking their way down and across a towering wall of rock.
Grandiose images aside, Ametis brings a new level of functionality and a fabulous futuristic aesthetic to any bathroom. The intuitive joystick controls water temp. and pressure, and the inset RBG LED ring of light indicates whether the water is hot or cold. Options for Ametis include finishes in full chrome, white, or powder-coated matte black. And Graff picks no bones about the dramatic impact awaiting consumers when Ametis debuts: "Breaking the mold of what has come before, Ametis could be the most beautiful and unique water-delivery system ever seen."

Each of these structures has a unique feel and distinctive aesthetic-exactly the entry point for Graff's roster of innovative showers and faucets.
