Design lovers vote Gessi Tremillimetri showerheads 'Best of Year' 2011

Last December Tremillimetri was selected as a finalist by interior designers and architects via an online vote with more than 28,000 unique visitors. A jury of leading architects and designers, along with editor-in-chief Cindy Allen, then chose them as the top winner the Bath Fittings category. Interior Design's end-of-year celebratory blitz culminated in its annual Best of Year Awards party at the IAC (InteractiveCorp) building in New York, a fantastic construction designed by archi-star Frank Gehry. The Gala event attracted hundreds of designers and manufacturers eager to see who would take home the singular and coveted honours shaped in the form of a bulb. The award was received by Larry Allen, Gessi US Managing Director and Luca Poletto Gessi International Managing Director who had flown from Italy for the occasion. 'Gessi’s products spring from creative freedom and a passion for objects liberated from prescribed functions,' commented Luca Poletto, 'We are thrilled that the design community has recognized our extreme attention to detail, the perfect harmony of contours and proportions, and the resulting clean lines characteristic of Tremillimetri and all our products'. Sleek and slim as a blade, measuring only about a tenth of an inch thin, Tremillimetri showerheads offer a distinctive low-key profile. The slender showerheads are available in wall-mount versions with rounded or square profiles. They feature a special super polished stainless steel mirror finish, offering the user the experience of infinite reflections of water. Water seems to form magically on the surface of the showerhead, as if it came from nowhere. Ideal for contemporary minimalist environments, these skinny showerheads come with cascade waterfall and regular shower modes. The Tremillimetri showerheads extend anywhere from 21 5/8” to 24 7/16” inches from the wall, depending on the model. A version is also available with an LED white light. Gessi’s focus extends beyond exceptional function and purity of form to encompass the transformation of practical spaces into beautiful personal experiences. Each creation of Gessi embodies the encounter of imagination and technology, form and function, sensibility and sense.
