The design direction for R.W.Atlas was clear from the beginning. This is one of the original Roman and Williams sketches for the line.
The preparation for launch of the R.W. Atlas fittings and District Tile has been a major team effort here at Waterworks. We are so pleased to introduce our friends and clients to our newest initiative that includes fittings for the bath and kitchen, accessories, a washstand and District Tile. For more than two years we collaborated with the design firm of Roman and Williams to create products that were inspired by precision-crafted goods from the past including microscopes, the Leica camera or the bezel of a Rolex sub-mariner watch. The results are designs that are not specific to any one historical period, but enjoy a familiarity with many objects from our past. This is a strictly American and original design sensibility, inspired by historic details but expressed in a modern way.
