Waterworks' latest range of bath and kitchen fittings, "Henry," lends a polished look to early 20th-century utilitarian inspiration. Referencing the drawing boards of Walter Gropius, Eero Saarinen and Constantin Brancusi, the streamlined curves of the spouts and handles look distinctly modern, while the sturdy handles and hexagonal nuts harken back to the machine age.
The arguable real beauty of "Henry" is the seamless flexibility to mix and match the hardware. The 33-piece collection, named after automaker and industrialist Henry Ford, is available in chrome, nickel or brass with accents in teak or marble. The sinks set offers a choice of a gooseneck or low-profile spout. And the shower system features a five-inch adjustable showerhead with an optional handshower on a hook. Both can be outfitted with either lever or cross-style handles and accessorized with matching pendant and mounted sconce light fixtures.
A textural alternative to tiles, Waterworks created Grove Brickworks to compliment "Henry," glazed bricks in 13 subtle colors made from brown clay and fired in 90-year-old kilns.
