The Watermark Collection
Tuesday 26 Jan 2016

The Watermark Collection offers edgy, radical new views on kitchen and bathroom brassware, combining authentic industrial heritage with a contemporary decorative chic.

Handcrafted in Brooklyn each piece is precisely machined from solid lead-free brass, hand finished and assembled to order. All this still takes place where the Watermark brand was born, in 1976, in Brooklyn, New York. Many of the original
craftsmen still work in the factory to this day, combining traditional metal finishing with precision engineering.

Bringing Watermark’s signature looks to the UK and Europe, The Watermark Collection offers eight bold, architectural ranges. All of the ambition and technical prowess of New York’s architecture is distilled in designs including ‘Brooklyn’, inspired by gate valves in mid-century apartment blocks, ‘Elan Vital’, referencing the stripped-down aesthetic of a commercial ball valve and the stone-handled ‘Zen’, one of several intensely modern ranges in the collection.

The Watermark Collection describes itself as “a creative brand for creative people” offering boutique brassware. With each range giving up to sixty different product options for kitchens and bathroom basins, baths and showers, customers create their own completely individual set-ups. At the next level of choice, there are fifteen different finishes, including polished nickel, copper and gold, vintage brass, gun metal and pewter. To achieve the luxurious, durable metal finishes which are such a signature of Watermark, every component goes through a process of hand polishing, plating and spraying which can take several days. The products are then hand assembled and intensively pressure tested before being packed for shipping. 

The Watermark Collection includes brassware designs from leading names such as Clodagh Signature and Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman. Watermark has become a natural choice for architects and designers in projects which range from private houses to luxurious hotels all over the world. Recent high profile projects include The Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai and Miami’s Eden Roc.
