One of the newest additions to the Fantini portfolio of products, the O-XY collection, designed by Marco Williams Fagioli, is inspired by the geometric linearity of Cartesian coordinates, expressed through slim, narrow shapes.
The handle of the single-lever sink tap is a texturized rectangle resting on the faucet body. The interwoven pattern is not just a decorative element, but is also functional, with a pleasant, soft feel to the touch. It’s the starting point for the expansion and development of the line.
“Vitruvius described cranes for lifting heavy loads as machines that speed up work,” explains Marco Williams Fagioli. “O-XY’s proportions are thus inspired by machines that speed up work in architecture.”
O-XY is the first collaboration between Fantini and designer Marco Williams Fagioli, who is the Founder and Creative Director of Zup Design Studio in Italy.
