SEVERAL KITCHENS AND baths were honored as part of the second annual Fantini Design Awards, presented by Fantini USA. Recognizing excellence in kitchen and bath design throughout North America, the awards called upon architects, designers and building developers to submit eligible projects inspired by water and with a passion for Italian design that show how Fantini products helped turn their visions into reality. Seven winners were chosen overall, with six from the category of completed projects and one from a future project, a new category in the competition. Entries were evaluated by a panel of judges, including Stefano Giussani, CEO Lissoni Inc.; Jaime Derringer, founder and ex- ecutive editor, Design Milk, and Arianne Nardo, Home + Design editor, Robb Report, on the basis of creativity, design, inspiration and quality of the submitted materials. One representative per winning project traveled to the Fantini head- quarters on Lake Orta in Pella, Italy as a part of a four-day, all-expens- es-paid trip. Winners received a tour of Fantini's recently renovated, state-of-the-art factory and headquarters designed by Piero Lissoni, and stayed at Fantini's exclusive new resort, Casa Fantini/Lake Time. ▪ Water and Italian Flair Inspire Designs BY ANITA SHAW Winners of Fantini USA's second annual design competition showcased European style in spaces that incorporated the company's dedication to water delivery. 5TH AVE. LOFT — Andrew Pollock Architect, PC This New York City loft required clean, low-maintenance bathrooms, so Andrew Pollock chose to go with a minimalist spa style. The inspiration for the three baths came from different 20th century landmark buildings that can be seen from the home. The baths include Boffi & Fantini's Aboutwater AF/21 Fukasawa collection in chrome and Fantini's Milano collection, sourced from Ferguson. 1309 MAPLE STREET — SMD Interiors Designed as a respite from the hectic world, the kitchen and master bath in this Vancouver, BC home were created to suit the time of day or seasons, of- fering a beachy vibe in summer and a cozy feel in winter, according to designer Sahra Samnani. Boffi & Fantini's Aboutwater AF/21 Fukasawa collection from Cantu Bathrooms are showcased in the bath and enhance the clean, calm aesthetic of the space. GRAMERCY PARK RESIDENCE — Eric Petschek LLC Historical met contemporary in this older New York City apartment being updated for the luxury rental market. To modernize the two bathrooms in the space yet be respectful to the building and its neighborhood, designer Eric Petschek incorporated classic influences using natural materials, as well as Fantini's Mint collection from Ferguson.
