Clarity and harmonious forms

    The O-O project sees the return of Bartoli Design to the world of bathroom design and the start of the collaboration with Rexa Design, specialised in creating products made of solid surface materials.

    With this family of basins, the Studio expresses some of its peculiar design features – clarity and harmonious forms bringing about an understated elegance.

    As Bartoli Design explains: “O-O implements our design research to reach both a structural and aesthetic balance: in this case, two cylinders with very different proportions are combined to result in a family of washbasins. A wide basin, placed horizontally, stays on top of the column with a remarkable overhang.”

    This leads to a studied balance of forms which, in their simplicity, take on sculptural relevance.

    Besides, the Studio adds: “The offset of the basin creates a place for the tap, distinct form the basin – which thus stands wide and neat – or it serves as a tiny top over the column when the tap is wall- or floor-mounted.”

    The geometric composition, studied by the millimetre, achieves an iconic appearance using simple and intelligible shapes. The strongly cantilevered basin shows a sort of suspended balance striking for its harmonious grace.

    Offsetting the axis of supporting column and basin, and combining neat cylinders, with no junctions, each stating a specific function, the design interprets the freestanding washbasin category in a contemporary way.

    Another issue is the product cross-over nature, first in the placement options. O-O are designed to be mounted in the centre of a room, or next to a wall with two options: with column and basin axial relatively to the user, or rotated parallel to the wall.

    Then, for those not requiring a freestanding sink, the O-O basin may be placed alone as well, top mounted.

    Finally, Bartoli Design explains: “We decided to show O-O in an ancient and noble material as marble, finished with a beautiful silky touch. The Corian option is also available in the Glacier White, Cloud Grey and Nocturne Black colours.”
