15/09/2022 - With its new Spaghetti taps
makes its official debut in the world of tapware. Designed by Elisa Ossino
, the collection includes marble and metal taps for washbasins, bidets, showers and bathtubs. Precious and essential elements conceal a technological heart –an extremely slender 20 mm diameter cartridge and 'easy fit' technology for perfectly flush installation.
Salvatori's first tapware production dates to the Fontane Bianche collection, designed by Elisa Ossino in 2016 and manufactured in collaboration with Fantini. The project includes metal mixers with a Metal Gunn finish, washbasins, storage units and marble accessories. Salvatori takes another step forward with the new Spaghetti collection, proposing super-minimal objects blending marble and metal that complement one another.
The collection is characterized by an unusual combination of metal and natural stone. No detail has been left to chance: natural stone combines with the sophisticated gunmetal finish, either in the form of a circular insert on the handle or a plaque around the base of the showerhead. These flourishes can be customised, allowing clients to choose the same stone as that used on the wall, so that the handle is scarcely visible, thus taking the Salvatori Total Look concept to another level. And, for those who want an alternative to stone, the disc can be substituted by a metal insert to blend in with the fitting.
To better understand the characteristics of the Spaghetti taps, look at the shower head, it merges a smooth edge with a Metal Gun finish with a natural stone disc from which the water dispensing nozzles protrude.
"As we so often point out, innovation is in our DNA and it is most definitely not lacking in presence in the Spaghetti collection
", says Gabriele Salvatori. "Our objective was to create elegant, timeless tapware components that would combine effortlessly with Salvatori bathroom collections
We developed an incredibly slim cartridge with a diameter of just 20 mm for the single-mixer deck-mounted and bidet, representing a first in the sector. Other innovations concern the wall-mounted shower, basin and bathtub taps which use “easy fit” technology. This essentially allows the piece to be installed flush with the surface for a minimal, discreet look.
Each piece is coated in an elegant gunmetal colour using PVD, an eco-friendly technology that is replacing finishes such as paint and chrome. Short for Physical Vapour Deposition, this technique vaporises metals in a vacuum chamber where they are condensed and transformed into a thin, sleek and even colour finish that is more resistant than traditional coatings.
