Watermark Designs Introduces Chelsea by Hastings Studio
Decorative plumbing fixtures and bath accessories manufacturer Watermark Designs has called Brooklyn home for almost 30 years, but its designs are far-reaching, making their way into luxury hotels and residences around the world and earning them a 2012 Green Good Design Award by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. The company is also building new collaborations, recently reaching an agreement to produce and distribute the Chelsea faucet line previously distributed by Hastings Tile & Bath.
Watermark Designs will continue to expand the luxury fixture collection originally designed by Bob Gifford of Hastings Tile & Bath
The new collection’s name, Chelsea by Hastings Studio, is an homage to the original design conceived by Hastings’ Bob Gifford. The faucet’s tall, slender design stands 7 1/2 inches high, with 4 1/2-inch handles. Watermark has already added to the collection, including an option for cross-handles in the design. Designed with a flush stream shaper aerator that tilts, the faucet allows users to control the direction of the water. The collection is available in all of Watermark’s 38 finishes, and in multiple configurations with a flow-rate of 1.5 gpm. Fixtures are cast from lead-free brass and AB1953 approved.
