Brian Messana and Toby O'Rorke of Messana O'Rorke are thinking Back to Basics. Taking a first stab at industrial design, the architects conceived the MO'R Building Block, manufactured in Italy for AF New York, to demonstrate the infinite possibilities of a single rectilinear form as a kitchen and bath fitting. It's solid brass, available either in polished chrome and brushed stainless-steel finishes or as is. Specify sizes in any ¾-inch increment.
For the launch, Messana and O'Rorke focused on eight kitchen versions and 11 bathroom options. The kitchen lineup comprises deck-mounted and swivel-spout faucets, each with three spray options, and two wall-mounted levers. For the bathroom, consider wall-mounted or deck-mounted sink faucets, showerheads, and tub fillers as well as coordinating accessories such as grab bars and toilet-paper holders. 212-243-5400; afnewyork.com.
