Sussex Taps embodies the uncomplicated beauty of wabi-sabi, the Japanese lifestyle philosophy turned interior trend, with its range of living finishes.

Based on the acceptance of transience and imperfection, wabi-sabi can be translated to an interior style that embraces the beauty of weathered materials, textures and shapes.

Sussex’s living finishes are raw, or electroplated, left without a lacquered seal, welcoming age, oxidation and patina. Each tap develops unique imperfections, and reveals a sheen of brass at the most frequent touch points, bearing signs of life and rustic character.

Manufactured in Melbourne from recycled brass shavings, Sussex’s sustainable processes extend from sourcing materials to the longevity of its products.

The Worn Black finish embodies Sussex’s commitment to environmental responsibility and organic design processes.

“The rise of the wabi-sabi ethos as an aesthetic in interior design feels perfectly aligned with our own brand philosophy. The beauty of unusual, bold finishes is something we are always drawn to. Our living finishes are designed to not only stand the test of time, but to hero the passing of time, too,” says Sussex’s Creative Director Vanessa Katsanevakis.

Working alongside organic and natural materials such as wood, linen, leather and concrete, Sussex’s range of taps in living finishes brings soul and character to the home.
