Bjarke Ingels

Lauded, technologically savvy architect Bjarke Ingels– founder of Denmark-based BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group – earned a reputation for creating tradition-defying sustainably minded buildings and projects. His innovative Taper™ by BIG Collection for KALLISTA marries form and function with architectural lines and an unmistakably urban vibe.

Taper by BIG reinvents minimalist design through shape-shifting geometry, turning the practical into poetry. From evolutionary architect Bjarke Ingels, in collaboration with KiBiSi, Taper is a concept that merges countertop, faucet and running water into one visually seamless design. The inviting contours of Taper reach forward, transforming cone to cylinder into a distinctive right angle that eliminates the escutcheon and turn-down tip. The result is a design that is unconventional, unexpected and playfully approachable.
