The plumbing brand Kos announced the start of cooperation with international class design studios – the Italian studio Zaven and the American Visibility to create a set of washbasins. At this new stage of development, two original projects were launched.
Beam, signed Visibility, curiously combines architectural archetypes to redefine the concept of the bathroom. The collection includes a washbasin with a Cristalplant® Biobased top, available in three different colors (in addition to the classic white, there is a new terracotta and dove grey), with a shelf for containers in natural wood, available in two sizes. “Beam is a collection that aims to complete the home environment; We wanted to bring personality and style to an object that will become part of everyday life,” say Joseph Guerra and Sina Sohrab, Visibility.
The washbasins feature an internal lip designed to provide more space for accessories. The washbasin is combined with a solid shelf. The design of this object is a direct reference to the steel I-beam, a key modular element in architecture whose dimensions change depending on use.
In the Rise collection, designed by the Italian studio Zaven, the idea began with the visualization of a flat element intersecting a cylindrical volume. As Enrica Cavarzan and Marco Zavagno say, “form must be consistent, continuously evolving, in accordance with the fascination with simple geometric volumes and graphic signs.” The sinks are made from Cristalplant® Biobased and are available in oval and round versions. In the version with console and semi-recessed washbasin, the bowl appears to float on the shelf, creating pleasant ergonomics.
