MARMO is the result between the combination of industrial processes and the know-how of the best italian artisans translated into simple geometric shapes enriched with the intrinsic aesthetic of the material. the new family of taps, presented by iB Rubinetti at salone internazionale del bagno during the last edition of milan design week, was designed by antonio gardoni and federico castelli, internationally renowned italian designers.


MARMO was conceived in brescia, at iB Rubinetti headquarter, where all the elements of the taps were created

 

 

 

the series comprehends different elegant products designed in several finishes; the marble parts are produced in white carrara and black marquina while the metal elements are made out of brass in chrome, white, black, gold, brushed nickel and gold rose finishes. this makes MARMO satisfying different needs, styles and tastes. to complete the tap collection the designers also thought of a soap dish in two different versions and one hook for towels, both entirely made out of marble.
