Clean design is right at home in the kitchen and bath, where form naturally follows function
Clean design is right at home in the kitchen and bath, where form naturally follows function. Take a look at seven simply sleek products:
Tile is bigger than ever. Literally. Walker Zanger's Mizu Umi comes in sizes from 24 by 1 inch to 24 by 4, with an Asian-inspired crackle glaze. $28 to $35 per square foot; Walker Zanger
With its ability to be molded seamlessly, solid surfacing is making ripples in bathtub design. Evocative of a Japanese soaking tub, Jason's rectangular 36-inch-deep rendition is made of beach-pebble-smooth resin with curved sides for two-person reclining. $7,000; Jason Intl.
A prerinse faucet is handy for washing pots and pans. KWC's Ono-Highflex has a rubber-covered extension arm that keeps its shape as you work and comes attached to a sleek kitchen spout that swings out of the way—all controlled by the slimmest of levers. Call KWC for pricing; KWC
Unfussy hardware suits a wide range of kitchens and baths. Baldwin's latest line has a distinctly contemporary edge. In seven finishes, including satin nickel. Towel ring, $55; cabinet knob, $8; cable-wire pull, $6; cup pull, $13; switchplate, $9; Baldwin
