Waterworks Finot

Waterworks partners with Gachot to unveil Finot

Waterworks has unveiled Finot, a new bathroom and kitchen fittings collection developed in partnership with design studio Gachot. 

Comprising over 50 styles, Finot is the second collaboration between the brands, following the creation of the Bond collection four years ago. The collection is inspired by sleek industrial design, tailored fashions and Modernist sculptures. Each element has been meticulously cast for precision and balance, with simple, pure shapes transformed into nuanced sculptural pieces that celebrate minimalism. The classic lever handle, for instance, showcases a subtle tapered look, while the spout – created in one seamless, swooping piece – has a distinctive curve. 

“We have accomplished something special and rare with Finot. Finally, a contemporary fittings collection done the Waterworks way,” says Peter Sallick, CEO and Creative Director of Waterworks. “Finot reflects a painstaking integration of our experienced design eye with our engineering expertise, and our instinct for humanity in the physical objects we make. In Finot, we see how the smallest details elevate the overall product and how refinement creates value. It’s a true expression of the unique capabilities and sensibilities of both Waterworks and our design collaborator, Gachot.”

John Gachot, Principal and founder of Gachot, adds: “We are proud to present this new collection as both the evolution of a friendship and an ongoing creative collaboration with Peter Sallick and the Waterworks team. We found inspiration in the honesty of the objects that encompass our everyday lives and the many histories we study and draw from in our work. Finot, for us, represents the power and beauty of balance, rigor and simplicity.” 

The collection extends beyond fittings to include additional pieces that can be used to elevate any interior. Lighting offerings include single and double wall sconces, as well as ceiling mount fixtures with an elegant box form and radiused corners. The Finot collection also includes touchable hardware like knobs and appliance pulls, as well as graceful glass shelving. 

Our brand’s original roots were in traditional design, before we moved into transitional, which we truly mastered,” Sallick explains. “Finot certifies our place in the contemporary world and our passion for its sleek, precise forms. It enables us to support all the best designers and projects across the world, with these pieces that feel at home in every space.” 

The Finot family of fittings and accessories will be available in Waterworks showrooms and at waterworks.com from June 2024.
