Completed projects

Project Yard
Client Ravak
Year 2021
Description The name Yard is based on the location of the area between the walls. This creates an intimate space for hygiene products. The washbasin collection is inspired by classic hanging washbasins, where a storage area was always present without the need for furniture. In the bathroom, we surround ourselves with a multitude of everyday products and these cause a great deal of visual ballast. The main advantage of washbasins is the location of the storage area under the edge of the washbasin, so that products are visually suppressed but still at hand. The shape of the washbasins is based on a blending of circular and angular morphology. The design of the washbasin is supported by a steel console that hides the fittings and hot and cold water valves.The washbasins are available in the following versions: 40cm, 60cm, 80cm, corner and basin.
