Watermark Designs' Elements Collection Recognized by HD Awards
Watermark Designs announced that their latest original faucet collection, Elements, has been named a finalist in Hospitality Design magazine's 14th annual HD Awards competition. This year, nearly 700 projects were submitted across 23 categories and nearly 300 products were submitted in 11 categories, including Flooring, Casegoods + Furniture and Bath. Elements can be custom-designed into more than 380,000 variations. The collection offers architects and designers the ability to play with color, form and texture in the creation of their own unique design statement. Elements is comprised of 14 handle styles, called Covers which are grouped into four material categories: Raw, Rock, Lumber and Forged. Every Cover has a base with 24 finish options and two options for inserts. The decorative inserts are offered in two styles: Bridge style and Scallop style. Both the insert and base are available in Watermark Designs' 24 finishes. The inserts are snapped into place and held using Watermark's patent pending rare earth magnets. New this quarter are additional handle options designed using the process of Guilloche (pictured); a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material via engine turning, which uses a machine of the same name, also called a rose engine lathe.
