We’re always on the lookout for functional yet design-worthy hardware for the bath, so naturally we were intrigued to learn that Australian designer Marc Newson had turned his attention to the humble shower drain.

Above: Infinity Drain collaborated with Marc Newson to create a new line of linear drain covers that feature a hexagonal cutout pattern inspired by the interiors of the Lever House Restaurant in NYC. Making its debut at the upcoming International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, the Infinity Drain Marc Newson Series will be available through Infinity Drain Authorized Dealers starting in June 2013.

Above: Infinity Linear Shower Drains are placed along the shower wall or entrance. Unlike center drains which require the shower floor to be pitched in four directions, linear drains work with the floor pitched in one direction, allowing you to use virtually any type of flooring material.

Above: The new Newson-designed decorative grate will be constructed of substantial 12-gauge stainless steel and offered in five finish options: satin stainless steel, polished stainless steel, oil-rubbed bronze, powder coat white, and powder coat black.

Above: Some of our favorite designs from Renegade industrial designer Marc Newson include his range of Colorful Cooking Appliance for Smeg and a collection of Bone China Picnic Ware for IDEE

If you are not renovating your shower anytime soon, consider replacing your current standard shower drain cover with an Artfully Designed Shower Drain.
