Back to the future: Steampunk Bay from California Faucets

California Faucets has launched the Steampunk Bay series of bathroom fixtures. Inspired by the science-fiction steam-powered, gear-driven time machines and spring-mechanized robots that define the steampunk genre, Steampunk Bay has utilitarian shapes and slightly distressed finishes capture the zeitgeist of today’s industrial design ethos, while an array of customization options allows designers to create a personalized expression of industrial style in the bath.

The series offers a choice between single hole or widespread faucet, wall- or deck-mounting, and curved high arc spout or slightly square low spout design. Three handle options including a Wheel Handle design reminiscent of antique gears, a trapezoidal Lever Handle, and triangular Blade Handle, inspire further customization.

To accentuate the industrial look throughout the bath, the series includes Roman tub sets, bidet sets, towel bars in three sizes (9 inches, 18 inches and 24 inches), robe hooks, and toilet paper holder. At the same time, the series’ shower trim is based on an actual 1920s-era steam valve gauge with steel dial and vintage markings and typeface.
