Ever since its debut in 1992, Gessi has earned its place as one of the global names in contemporary design. Founded by Umberto Gessi, the company began as a small workshop, with the somewhat audacious goal of challenging the industry status quo dominated by historic names.
Flash forward over twenty years later and you’d be hard-pressed to find a corner of the world that doesn’t welcome Gessi’s functional yet beautiful products. From the sleek, modern collections to their handcrafted stone baths and eclectic Goccia collection, Gessi has inspired a host of modern spaces all over the globe. In partnership with our friends at Abey, we explore five interior projects that prove this European design icon is at home in all manner of styles and spaces.
Sydney studio Hare + Klein have a knack for delivering relaxed modern Australian style in their projects, and this coastal home is no exception. Allowing the views outside to act as a focal point for the space, the bathroom design draws extensively on stone for the vanity top and tiles, complemented with both the Ovale Bath Spout and the Ovale Wall Mixer.
Raw yet refined
Greek islands hotspot Casa Cook has set the standard for raw yet luxurious design spaces, and the bathrooms at new addition Casa Cook Kos are no different. The bespoke stone basin and handcrafted details add texture, while the matte black hue and smooth form of the tapware adds subtle modernism. The Lucia Curved Basin Spout in matte black ticks the same boxes; modern yet timeless.
Where old meets new
This European farmhouse unites the usual rustic materials of timber and stone, but the addition of a sleek modern bath and simple steel tapware brings the interior firmly into the present day. Instead of looking dated, the raw foundations of the space now play perfectly with the new features, creating a timeless aesthetic.
A touch of Tokyo
As a contemporary interpretation of the Japanese aesthetic, this modern Monochrome bathroom emphasises natural stones and timbers with recurring matte black elements. Designed by D’Cruz Design Group, the steel framing of the sliding doors is reinforced nicely with the statement matte black Gessi Goccia basin mixer used for both sink and freestanding bath.
Double the love
Working with a petite space shouldn’t come at a compromise of the important stuff – like a double vanity. This Sydney apartment might seem straight out of the small-space living found in New York or London, but in the hands of Minosa Design (and some well-placed Gessi Goccia taps and mirrors) it still manages to create space and style.
