Kallista, a leading designer and provider of kitchen and bath luxury products, partnered with Bjarke Ingels, founder and head of the Danish architectural practice Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), to create Taper by Bjarke Ingels. The Taper Sink Faucet marries advanced engineering with the sleekly shape of a cone transitioning outward into a cylinder and are deeply rooted in the principles of classic Mid-Century Danish design.
The signature cone-to-cylinder design represents a paring down of the form to its most elemental components. The faucet has an austere, forward-leaning profile, and the unique 90-degree bend in the faucets and lever handles slyly references the stark geometry of the pipes behind the walls. The faucet spout is designed with a spout tip that is uniquely flush with the faucet; the aerator is in the base where it can’t be seen by the user. Taper meets the flow, force and coverage mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency to be WaterSense® listed with a 1.5 gpm laminar flow aerator.
