Brooklyn-based Watermark Designs has launched the Elements collection, comprised of 14 handle styles—called “covers”—designed by the Watermark Designs Studio.
The styles are grouped into four material categories.
- Raw, created by JM Lifestyles (U.S.), is hand-poured, sealed and reinforced concrete available in Chalk, Military, Poured and Screed.
- Rock, created by Marmi Serafini (Italy), uses hand-finished natural stones and marbles, and is available in Carrara, Exquisite Rose, Jungle and Volcano.
- Lumber, created by WoodForm (U.S.), has real wood grain and texture captured and sealed into concrete; available in Charred, Ground, Smoked and Teak.
- Forged, created by Anka (UK), uses handworked and lacquered liquid metal, available in Oil Slick and Oxblood.
Each “cover” has a base, which is made of brass and available in any of Watermark’s 24 finishes. Along with the base, there are two options for “inserts,” which are decorative and help provide additional grip. These inserts are available in two styles: bridge style and scallop style. These inserts are also available in any of Watermark’s 24 finishes. The inserts are snapped into place and held using Watermark’s rare earth magnets.
The collection has several faucet body choices that are also available in 24 finishes.
