American kitchen and bathroom designer brand Kallista partners with Danish architect Bjarke Ingels to create the Taper by BIG bathroom collection, in collaboration with KiBiSi

Taper by BIG collection is a gracefully minimalist selection of plumbing pieces that takes its design cues from the practical function of the products, in order to facilitate the passage of water, stripping the forms down to their most elemental essence. This new bathroom collection represents the first collaboration Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has undertaken with the home interiors industry. The result is a line that integrates Bjarke Ingels' architectural aesthetic design principles and the finest craftsmanship from Kallista.

Kallista and BIG have applied advanced engineering and craftsmanship to merge countertop, faucet and running water into one visually seamless design. It creates sleekly shape of a cone, transitioning outward and horizontally into a cylinder, with distinctive right angle turn down tip. The faucet features clear lines and smooth silhouette. By eliminating the base, the bonnet and the escutcheon, all these delicate details reflect the mastermind. The concise one-piece design marries form and function, bringing the external natural beauty to its design.

Ingels also took the entire bathroom decoration arrangement in consideration when he designed the Taper by BIG collection. The wall-mounted bath spout as well as a deck-mount bath set with integrated diverter accommodates a handshower vertically, resulting in a much cleaner, uncluttered look. The geometric designs also extend into the shower items. Users can select Kallista rain-domes and multi-functional shower-head according to their preference. To enhance the showering experience, thermostatic control, three-way transfer valve, volume control and a pressure balance control have been introduced in this collection.
