The shape of water

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

VitrA has launched a new bathroom collection, courtesy of Italian designer Claudio Bellini. And while the press release might talk about ‘the fusion of organic shapes found in nature with architectural lines present in the urban environment’, PiP thinks the emphasis is more on the geometry than the curves. We’re particularly enamoured with the ‘suspended’ sinks hanging from thin, black metal rails, with integrated mirrors, downlight and towel rail (pictured). All bringing a touch of angular ‘industrial’ to the otherwise fluid ablution experience.
