Time for design

Plumes, a new cockerel-themed line of hand-painted Limoges plates, from Pinto Paris.

Alberto Pinto must have more hours in the day than the rest of us. On top of an international roster of projects that includes homes, jets, offices, yachts and hotels, in a matter of months, he's also launched a line of faucets with THG Paris, published a new book, and added to his growing line of ceramics and home furnishings. And if that's not enough, this October he'll open his eagerly anticipated furniture and accessories showroom, Pinto Paris, at 14 rue du Mail.
Today, from Flammarion, debuted in the U.S. this January.

Pinto's Le 11 line of faucets for THG Paris was named after his legendary office's street number on the Place des Victoires . Note the minimalist tap identifiers... tiny red and blue crystals.
