The team at Sussex are always looking for a better way to do things; which is why their taps continue to be a landmark of innovation in the industry.
June 6th, 2018
The Sussex designers create taps using rigorous methods that have been pioneered and refined again and again over the course of two decades. The six phases of the design and manufacturing process are conducted with the closest care and attention. Which is acutely expressed in the fact that the team has a Melbourne workshop, allowing them to carry out all the crafting and finessing on site.
As the only Australian tap maker with its own foundry, Sussex can melt and recycle precious brass shavings left over from daily machining operations. This sustainable practice has rightly earned the team praise and awards from the industry, but all that aside – the design of these taps is a thing to behold.
Suba: The Suba collection celebrates Australia’s love of minimalist design. The bold shapes of modernism inspired the design of the range, a collection that brings a sense of strength and balance to any setting. Understatement can be powerful and Suba’s restrained subtlety creates a striking effect.
Calibre: Inspired by European artistic practices; honed in the Melbourne studio – the Calibre collection was born from an appreciation of architecture and urban design. The vision for its unique and innovative lines has been realised in a flawless union of form and function.
Circa: There is no purer geometric form than the circle. The Circa collection draws upon this elemental shape to deliver timeless design, crafted to perfection. Elegant and brilliant, Circa is an inspired contemporary creation.
Monsoon: The Monsoon showerhead seeks to capture the invigorating sensuality of an open-air bathroom in the tropics. Its rich cascade will elicit a tingling wave of pleasure as it washes over you. Yet, as it’s crafted in Melbourne from the finest steel possible, the Monsoon has a reassuring solidness.
