Italian bathroom brand Zucchetti will unveil Isy22, their new tap collection designed by Italian designer and architect Matteo Thun and Spanish designer Antonio Rodriguez at Milan Design Week 2022. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the iconic Isy* taps by the Italian brand, this new collection remains faithful to the original inspiration that guided the form and function of the former taps, while ascribing to contemporary design through the usage of latest material finishes.
Isy* tap collection, launched twenty years ago, marked a revolution in bathroom design with their simple and effective design. The Isy* taps mimic the essential shape of the natural flow of water, a straightforward inspiration that helped the collection mark its uniqueness in the bathroom world. This inspiration stays unchanged in the latest Isy22 collection. However, interpreted by the Matteo Thun & Partners duo to fit in with contemporary design and newfangled demands, the collection presents a renewed and original design – enhanced in size and character – that fulfils extant needs well.
Much like most other designs by the bathroom brand, the taps are sophisticated and are balanced in size and shape. They comprise several collections, namely the single-lever mixer, the classic two handle version with levers and knobs, and the progressive mixer. Each of these collections come in varied finishes some of which are generic and some exclusive for each collection. Out of these, the Mediterranean blue finish stands out. The single lever mixer and two handle series with levers, washed in the intense and vibrant Mediterranean blue, instantly draw attention to themselves. The progressive mixer, on the other hand, is washed in a combination of two bold and bright colours, seeking again to grab the attention of the user. The two-handle version with circular knobs takes the sophistication of this collection up a notch with the usage of marble.
Another addition in the Isy22 collection that differentiates it from its predecessor is the ‘no touch’ electronic tap. Cognizant of current times, this feature effectively meets the needs posed by the recommended mode of lifestyle today. A combination of minimalistic features, technologically advanced features and high-quality finishing gives Isy22 an unmistakable character that sets it apart as an iconic design for today and tomorrow.
Isy22 taps will remain on display at Corso Venezia, 46 on 9th June 2022 (12am-9pm) and at Rho Fiera, Hall 24, Stand D11 - D15 from 7th June to 12th June 2022.
