For me, beauty and detail are a basic part of the THG-Paris DNA. I tried to mix the best of both worlds into this new collection - both Grand Central and West Coast reflect a combination of French classicism and All-American boldness and optimism.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 22, 2017
THG®-Paris, which has collaborated with prestigious brands including Lalique, Baccarat and Christofle, announced its latest collaboration, two new lines produced with internationally recognized interior designer Timothy Corrigan. This new collection joins two other product lines launched this year by THG-Paris: Dean, designed by Studio THG, and Infini, created in partnership with leading French porcelain manufacturer, Haviland.
By incorporating details from 1920s jewelry design, the new collections have a distinctly clean and contemporary feel while also maintaining a classic timelessness about them. THG’s new Corrigan collection represents a mix of the more hard-edged modernism so popular in recent years as well as a return to a period in which a more lyrical and detailed aesthetic was desired.
“I have always been so impressed by the beautiful design and extraordinary attention to detail that one finds in all of the work of THG-Paris that one cannot but compare them to jewelry for the bathroom,” said Corrigan. “For me, beauty and detail are a basic part of the THG-Paris DNA. I tried to mix the best of both worlds into this new collection - both Grand Central and West Coast reflect a combination of French classicism and All-American boldness and optimism.”
Acknowledged worldwide, Timothy Corrigan’s timeless designs have landed accolades such as “Today’s Tastemaker” by Architectural Digest. He has been named in many of the world’s best designer lists, including the AD100, Robb Report’s Top 40 and the Luxe Gold List. His clients include royalty, Hollywood celebrities and corporate leaders.
THG’s West Coast series is a true work of art and pure craftsmanship, featuring inlays within the faucet handles of either black or white onyx or a Guilloché metal pattern. The Guilloché is a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material via engine turning. This technique, which was a popular motif in fine watches and decorative accessories in the 1920s, allows for greater delicacy, precision and closeness of line. Corrigan’s signature sophisticated European design aesthetic displays further with belted waist and finial details on the handles and spouts.
Grand Central, the second product line in the Timothy Corrigan collaboration, incorporates fluted
metalwork on the spout and handles reminiscent of the columns outside New York’s Grand Central Station. Similar to West Coast, black or white onyx inlays are featured within each handle, as well as the belted waist and finial details on all handles and spouts.
“Timothy Corrigan is a leader in the interior design industry and we’re thrilled to launch our first
collaboration with him,” said Pedro Uranga, North American director for THG-Paris. “Corrigan’s passion for detail, seen in our new West Coast and Grand Central lines, gives THG-Paris more depth to its product offerings.”
The Timothy Corrigan collection is offered in various configurations for basins, matching bathtub and shower systems and a range of matching accessories. In addition to the signature finishes of the collection, THG offers a variety of finishes to complement each design, including chrome, nickel, rhodium silver and soft gold.
In addition to the collection’s debut at ICFF, both Corrigan lines will display in THG-Paris’ new design center, opening May 24, 2017 in the Decoration & Design Building in New York.
Based near Normandy, France, the house of Tetard-Haudiquez-Grisoni (THG®-Paris) is world-renowned for its exquisite, handcrafted collections of faucets and accessories for the bath. Bearing a longstanding tradition of aligning with similarly-minded luxury brands, THG maintains partnerships with Lalique, Bernardaud, DAUM, Baccarat, Christofle and Manufacture de Monaco. Many collections are also created by high-profile designers, including Jean-Claude Delépine, Pierre-Yves Rochon, Alberto Pinto, Jamie Drake, Rémi Tessier and Studio Putman. These alliances enhance THG’s craftsmanship to create products that are unparalleled in their look, composition and design, bringing opulence and artistry to fine baths everywhere. THG also recently received an EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) Quality Label by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry. This prestigious citation is given to those companies that preserve ongoing artisan craftsmanship traditions emblematic of French ingenuity, are specific to a dedicated region, and are part of France’s rich cultural heritage. The process to receive this label is arduous with company tours, an examination and an evaluation by regional government authorities. THG collections are comprised of over 250,000 products and are found in luxury architectural residences, hotels, resorts, yachts and royal palaces worldwide. Customers may visit one of 90 authorized THG design showrooms across North America and Mexico to choose from a selection of over 150 designs and 35 finishes.
