Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
Watermark Designs together with renowned interior designer Mark Zeff collaborated on the new collection that Zeff originally created for his own design project at 500 W 21st, a 32 unit luxury condo building with two penthouses and two duplexes.
The H-Line Collection combines the best of Watermark Designs custom capabilities infused with Mark Zeff’s singular aesthetic. The faucets walk the fine line between historic and modern, the spout and single lever handles seeming to have been plucked from another era. The gently bowed-out square shape softens the classic contemporary design. The escutcheons are square with slightly rounded sides and they are engraved with letters – “H” for hot and “C” for cold. The exposed tub filler also has a knurled diverter lever.
“This collection is classic yet modern and very luxurious. The material has great weight; it feels wonderful in your hands and there is a real sexiness to it. Watermark took what I envisioned and articulated it perfectly. Their craftsmanship is exceptional which was so important to me,” said Zeff.
“Working with Mark Zeff was a great experience,” said Avi Abel, president of Watermark Designs. “When he approached us to manufacture a collection for 500 W. 21st, we knew right away that we wanted to be involved with the project. We love working with architects and designers and helping them craft collections that articulate their larger vision – and we couldn’t be more pleased with how the faucets turned out.”
