Timeless Insertions – Pinch and Eccentric Collections by Rogerseller
Highlighted in CG Design Studio’s Hawthorne House and Mark Szczerbicki Design Studio’s Hideaway House, Rogerseller’s Pinch and Eccentric collections express a timeless diversity as contemporary tapware offerings.
With a focus on locally designed and made tapware, Rogerseller has a 125-year history of supplying and producing unique tapware collections from its base in Melbourne. A proudly family-owned and locally concentrated company, Rogerseller’s ability to work closely with architects and designers has always been important to the brand’s story. Each design by Rogerseller is a representation of a contemporary relevance and steeped in a passion for sharing timeless and enduring design with the Australian market. The Pinch and Eccentric collections are conceived as bridging the traditional and the contemporary, with a fresh approach to form.
The Pinch Collection takes its name from the pinching action itself, and the resulting form is a gestural nod to the motion. The elongated handle stretches out from the classically rounded base and combines the conventional and expected roundedness with a more contemporary linear piece. Each element in the collection stems from this same fusion of forms. Utilised in the Hawthorne House by CG Design Studio, the suite is applied in a brushed gold finish where the basin, bath and shower tapware are all used together. Julia Stojanovic of CG Design studio says, “we selected Rogerseller fittings for the sleek and contemporary look to enhance the modern and luxe aesthetic we wanted to create for the client. We featured the gold fittings in the ensuite to give depth to the palette, resulting in a warm, fresh and sophisticated space.”
Hideaway House by Mark Szczerbicki Design Studio sees the Eccentric collection used for its contemporary formality. Instead of combining the linear and rounded approaches together, Eccentric leans more toward the modern tapware offering and brings a quirkiness to the detailing, adding a subtle hint of personality. Utilising the basin and bath mixer flush plate and towel rail, Mark Szczerbicki Design Studio has combined the brushed gold and matt black finishes together. The collection features an axis that is deliberately off-centre, adding an element of curiosity and a moment of the unexpected. The result sees a playful element added to the elements.
The Pinch and Eccentric collections both embrace the exploratory Australian design spirit, combining tried and tested traditional references with a fascination with the modern. Both Rogerseller collections are steeped in a future focused approach that will see the designs continue to be relevant for years to come.
