Mamoli bets on the great architects and raises the stakes with the Gio Ponti collection relaunch

Mamoli, leading kitchen and bathroom faucet brand through the past 80 years, honors the great designers of days of yore by bringing back architect Gio Ponti’s iconic collection - first designed in 1953.

A new product line entirely “made in Italy”, faithful in proportions and design to the original. Gio Ponti is apparently based on a traditional widespread sink faucet design, but this edition comes equipped with ceramic cartridges and next-generation water saving Neopearl aerators. Innovative, environmentally conscious technology and materials that are seamlessly integrated into the original design, just like Gio Ponti would have wanted. The handles, reminiscent of three pointed stars and strongly wanted by Gio Ponti himself, are designed to for a three fingered grip, and operate through 180° “pontian”angle rotations. A perfect combination of contemporary taste and traditional decoration, naturally segueing into a collection with a timeless flare. The bathroom line is available in three finishes: chrome, 24 carat gold, and burnished brass PVD.
