For an elegant yet hardworking kitchen, look no further than Mick De Giulio, who has crafted award-winning spaces for more than 45 years and can teach us a thing or two about form and function.

For his latest collaboration with Kallista, the designer kept technology and aesthetics top of mind when creating the Juxtapose collection, which includes a professional kitchen faucet with advanced cleaning features like Sweep spray and Boost. De Giulio focused on streamlined proportions and elegant aesthetics that fold a faucet into a room rather than make it a focal point.

Take this Roselle, Illinois, project—a master class in mixed materials and refined touches. Various applications of stainless steel on the hood, countertops and hardware add a richness and reflection, while the iceberg quartzite backsplash keeps the mood light and airy.

The Juxtapose Semi-Professional Faucet in Matte Black by Mick De Giulio for Kallista features a pull-down spray head and Boost technology that increases water flow.
