The James Hardie company's fiber cement panels can be butted to each other or can be installed with a reveal between each panel. I love this look for contemporary houses. It almost looks like steel, but it won't rust.
LP SmartSide panel siding comes in a variety of options for design flexibility, and it can be used to side all or part of a home. On this home, it's used in combination with LP SmartSide lap siding, trim and fascia.
