Italian bath products brand Gessi has introduced a new shower that combines water and light to help bathers improve their wellness, the company says.
The Afilo Collection features flowing water, glowing lights, and an illusion of floating in space, the company says, adding that the line represents a reimagination of the shower.
“This multifunction system brings beautiful visuals to the shower experience with fixtures that appear to be suspended in midair while diffusing soft lights amidst the streaming water,” the company says.
As part of Gessi’s Private Wellness Program, Afilo pairs the power of light and water to create a sensory experience that is designed to refresh and restore body, mind and spirit, the company says. Chromatherapy lights shine through and merge with the falling water, creating an effect that the company says is soothing yet invigorating for bathers.

Designed as an overhead rainfall/waterfall shower, the Afilo Collection includes fixtures in square, round and rectangular shapes that may be installed recessed into the ceiling or exposed in a boxed design. A slot along the showerhead’s perimeter is the source of the diffused light, while a thin steel outer frame and inclined inner walls reflect the light in such a way to create the “floating” illusion. Users may customize their lighting color choices, including shades of gold, blue, green and purple. It’s available in an array of finishes.
“Gessi’s Private Wellness Program is a signature concept driven by the brand’s commitment to innovation and designing products that enhance and improve the lives of their customers,” the company says in a release announcing the collection. The company says its shower concepts represent the world’s largest array of steel showerheads and shower elements for hydro massage. The “aim is to create everyday wellness centers in private bathrooms, in addition to bringing their products to professional spa settings worldwide.”
Gessi was founded in 1992 by Umberto Gessi, and has become Italy’s largest producer of premium original-design bath faucets, sinks, accessories and shower systems, as well as high-end kitchen faucets.
