PROJECTS FOR NOORTH — ITALY

2017

ROMA

Graphic geometry meets the nobility of an ancient stone column. Up to 3 stones in 4 diverse shades and textures are stacked upon each other like fractions of a column, allowing for uniform to contrasted compositions.
Shades range from white marble to black granite, while the expressivity can be further augmented by combining different tactile qualities such as a matte sandstone texture, a slightly irregular vertical lined texture, and a rough texture reminiscent of old stone floors.
Large mirrors paired with a smaller luminescent screen are evocative of the classic geometry in architecture. The collection is complemented by simple free standing metal towel rack.

AZUMA

Azuma translates the warm sensibility of the Japanese bath into a contemporary language. Artificial and natural elements are harmoniously combined.
The abstract white feel of Milltek - used for the sink and bathtub -becomes warmer through a soft shape and its combination with wood and cork.
Like a drop of falling water, it evolves from a circular top that gradually transitions into a square shape at its base.
Wooden bathtub trays recall large pebbles smoothed by the flow of water; wooden screens with vertical strips with mirrors allow the light to be modulated with a continuous interplay of shadows, transparency or reflections, and are fitted with knobs and towel rails for hanging bathrobes and clothes. The wooden clothes stand is an archetypal sign traced in the air. It is offered as a wall-mounted or free standing hanger and also as a stool with a high backrest that serves as a valet stand. The collection concludes with a series of small stools made from wood and cork - solid geometric shapes which replicate those of the washbasins and bathtub – that can be placed in the room as rocks in a Zen garden.
