Classic designs: Taper collection by BIG for Kallista

Introducing the new “Taper” collection, designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, founder and head of the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), for American luxury bathroom brand Kallista.  As BIG’s first collaboration in the home interiors industry, the Taper collection takes its design cues from the principles of classic mid-century Danish design.

The Taper faucet has a forward-leaning profile, and the 90-degree bend in the faucets and lever handles references the geometry of the pipes behind the walls. The faucet spout is designed with a spout tip that is flush with the faucet; and the aerator is in the base where it can’t be seen by the user. 

There is a toilet paper holder that opens and closes via a magnetic arm. Taper by BIG also includes two bathroom basin sets that meet the flow, force and coverage mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency to be WaterSense listed with a 1.5 gpm laminar flow aerator.  Meanwhile, the wall-mounted bath spout has an 8.75-inch reach as well as a deck-mount bath set with integrated diverter that accommodates a handshower vertically.
