Time and Intimacy/ VitrA / Bathroom Design & Product Design

2016 /  I designed a conceptual project for the Turkish company, VitrA for an exclusive group exhibit during the Salone del Mobile (Fuori Salone).
“Menagerie” is a group of sinks combined together to create a unique, shared space inspired by the communal bathing rituals in Turkish culture, a space to share with your loved ones, full of warmth and domesticity, which enables “intimacy and togetherness” at the same time.
Each element is assigned a specific task to form an overlapping composition, a sort of spatial island you can move around and enjoy spending time in. It is a comfortable and “furnished” gathering point for the beginning of the day, or at the end, to share dreams and happenings – a magic place that accommodates all your needs.
“Menagerie” includes a low table area and stool “for taking care of yourself”, a foot bath for relaxation, a deep free-standing sink for multi-tasking, a spacious shallow-sink to indulge in, and a step for “little Junior” so he can reach his very own place to wash.
