Design: Keiji Takeuchi / 2018
Inspiration: The washbasin is discreetly suggested by a semispherical bowl recessed in the slab of stone or marble, which lies on a top with a contrasting material. Floe reduces the concept of the service sink to its minimum, making its presence almost invisible and additionally expanding the work surface in a precise functional and aesthetic code.
Description: A simple and rigorous shape for a sink integrated into a top in different material and with a slightly hinted perimeter to contain water and splashes. Floe’s unique aesthetic respects the typical thinking of Japanese design.
Technical features: Available in various stones: white Carrara marble – Crema d’Orcia – Pietra d’Avola – Gris du Marais.
with single basin L.1150 x 460 x 20 mm.
with double basin (fixed distance 900 mm.) L. 1510 x 460 x 20 mm.
basin diameter 370 mm.
“I like to think of luxury as something that we allow ourselves by reversing the conventions and what is usual and typical. I draw Floe starting from the material, choosing it precious to embellish all the simplest daily rituals. For the same reason, I made it simple, almost like a slab, to enhance the presence of the material itself, without overcharging its perception. I did not want to look at it as an object to be preserved. Floe must give the idea of a way to indulge in the luxury of a beautiful and, at the same time, functional object to use. All this to challenge the rule that the luxury of beauty does not always correspond to functionality. ” K. Takeuchi
