Patricia Urquiola’s designs showcase some unique creations with different materials and innovative ideas. She comes up with 3 new bathroom designs, Lariana, Cuna Bath and Sonar each with a delicate innovative characteristics.
Cuna weighs in at slightly more than 30 kilograms displaying the designer’s deep knowledge of materials, production processes and her delicate and feminine aesthetic.
The Larian family is completed by two versions of sink oval and round, resting or column. Both types maintain the characteristic contrast formally generated by the soft curvature of the invaded that opposes the geometric form and the linear path of the outside. This concept is also reintroduced in the version of the column where the basin, in an offset position with respect to the base rests on a monolith that can be completed with shelf or with mobile container in wood. The wash basins and the column are proposed in cristalplant biobased® or in marble. The element sink in cristalplant® is available in white or with outside variations in light gray or dark gray.
Patricia Urquiola proposes a collection of basins and sinks characterized by innovation and elegance. The use of the Saphir keramik allowed for a reduced thickness in the products, without renouncing to the typical resistance of ceramics. The collection is distinguished by its thinness and uniformity, which give lightness to the weight. The cannettata texture covers the edges of the products, accentuating the volumes severity, and allowing for an unconventional refinement. The rigorous geometries accentuate the plans and enhance the movements of the water: the inclined surface of the fund leads toward a transverse slot which hides the discharge with a simple gesture.
