Project Description

KALLISTA, designer and distributor of fine plumbing products, has joined forces once again with Chicago-based, internationally recognized designer, Mick De Giulio, to create the Juxtapose Collection, a new line of kitchen faucets.
Designed to delight both novice and kitchen connoisseur, the collection is comprised of a Single-Hole Semi-Professional Faucet, a Single-Hole Bar Faucet, a Wall-Mount Pot Filler, and a Soap/Lotion Dispenser.

The designs are offered in a primary palette of Polished Chrome, Stainless Steel and Matte Black PVD finishes, which are artfully contrasted by Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, Brushed Moderne Brass or Matte Black accent PVD finishes.
In conjunction with the Juxtapose Faucet launch, KALLISTA also unveiled the cold-water Contemporary Filter Faucet, new to the Foundations Collection.

The first of its kind in the KALLISTA portfolio, the Contemporary Filter Faucet features a slim, minimalist design that pairs beautifully with the Juxtapose series.

The faucet has a 360-degree swivel spout and requires a water filtration system, such as the KOHLER Aquifer Water Filtration System.

The Contemporary Filter Faucet is available in Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, Brushed Nickel, Unlacquered Brass, Matte Black and Stainless KALLISTA finishes.

The result is a collection that is modern but not cold, effectively blurring the lines between appropriate scale and form with impeccable functionality.

Pivotal to the series is the Juxtapose Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet, a commanding design that is uber-chic and expertly engineered to provide ultimate performance.

The faucet head is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the hand, with a smooth magnetic docking system which securely locks the faucet head into place when not in use.

The three-function sprayhead incorporates the latest in Kohler technology: Aerate provides an even stream of water flow; Kohler Sweep® Spray with specially angled nozzles to create a wide, forceful blade of water for superior cleaning; and, Kohler Boost™, a powerful option that immediately increases the faucet flow rate by 30 percent.

Users can easily move between the sprays with a discreet toggle at the back of the faucet to take on the most arduous tasks with the push of a button.

Beyond the functional beauty of the design is the Juxtapose Collection’s inspired finish palette with its polished and matte metal options thoughtfully compiled to complement a wide range of interiors.

Customers can choose from Polished Chrome; Stainless Steel with Polished Nickel accents; Matte Black with Brushed Moderne Brass accents; or, Matte Black.

“One of the biggest movements in kitchens over the past 20 years has been the continuing evolution of open plan kitchens and connected spaces,” said De Giulio.

“In general, there is less formality in people’s lives and that has led to fewer walls and barriers within our homes.
The faucets were designed to meld into spaces that are open and viewable from other areas, so a lot of emphasis was paid to the personality and look of the faucets.”
