ABOUTWATER is a partnership between two companies: Boffi and Fantini. Their partnership is based on the concept of creating an innovative collection of taps with a modern and elegant design, conceptually excellent with flawless production, distributed cooperatively in order to enlarge the market beyond their respective segments.
Every item of the ABOUTWATER line is lead free, in compliance with the most progressive international standards safeguarding public health: the Aboutwater faucets do not exceed 0.25% in lead content.
This collaboration is a fairly recent one: it was launched during the 2010 Milan Design Week, presenting two tap collections designed by Piero Lissoni and Naoto Fukusawa. Since then, the collection has gained considerable momentum and widespread recognition within the industry.
Moreover, the AF/21 line by Naoto Fukusawa is now available in 304 gauge stainless steel.
Boffi + Fantini are a match made in heaven: they embody two consolidated realities of excellence in Italian design. Both institutions distinguish themselves through their exceptional production qualities, a high level of creativity and a solid international profile.
Despite their international presence, Boffi and Fantini retain their passion for properly-made projects and their artisan origins, to make this enthusiasm their key point for their competitive advantage.
