Founded by Umberto and Gian Luca Gessi in 1992 in Serravalle Sesia, in the Vercelli area, Gessi
immediately managed to establish itself in the domain of design taps
for the bathroom and kitchen. The solutions for the bathroom by Gessi and the tap collections for the kitchen share the same aesthetic research and technical qualities, for a range of creative solutions that encompass freestanding and wall-mounted mixers. The catalog also includes overheads shower
, washbasins and sanitary ware, electronic taps, accessories and fabrics for the bathroom aimed as for residential use as for the hospitality sector.
Common denominator to all products in the wide offer by Gessi is the quality of the Made in Italy production – that finds its place in a seventy thousands square meters building designed to autonomously produce 40% of the required energy – and an approach to wellness that makes use of design to stimulate the senses and improve the quality of life.
Gessi: taps and accessories for the bathroom since 1992
The first production of taps by Gessi dates back to 1992 with the Griffe collection; it was in 1996 with the Diverso collection that the company sealed its vocation to the manufacturing of design taps which catalog is nowadays renowned among architects and interior designers as a reference for the bathroom furniture. Gessi proposes itself as the “water designer” with products that are able to supply it in various ways and in combination with elements such as air ad light.
Among the most famous and successful tap series by Gessi there is the Rettangolo collection
, a family of minimalist mixers for the bathroom designed by Prospero Rasulo in 2002 with an essential design inspired by the geometric shape it drives its name from. While keeping its minimalist style, the range of design taps for the bathroom by Gessi has been influenced by other styles that have contributed to enrich it. As an example, the Goccia collection released in 2010 was designed by Rasulo with organic lines that evoke the water flow.
