January 10, 2022

Fantini USA has announced the winners of its fourth-annual Fantini Design Awards program, recognizing excellence in kitchen and bath design throughout North America. Architects, designers and building developers were called to submit eligible projects that feature Fantini products.

Fantini’s guiding influence is water. With the power to move and to inspire, to invigorate and to offer peace, water has continued to be a wellspring of creativity throughout the company’s 70-year history. The winning projects have been selected with this appreciation of water as well as artistic vision in bringing Italian design to North American audiences.
