ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE


Curated by COTTO

From the past until today, our changing lifestyles and daily routines have transformed the way we interact with spaces within the house. A room that was traditionally used for one function such as the bedroom, is now utilised for other activities such as reading, working, or even eating. As spaces have become more multi-functional, the boundaries between the “bedroom”, “living room” or other rooms in the house have become more blurred.

The same goes for the “bathroom” that we use on a daily basis. The relationship of the bathroom with other spaces in the house has become more intertwined, which inspired us to rethink new possibilities that we might have overlooked about our interaction with the so-called “bathroom”.

A group of designers from around the world have come together in this exhibition to interpret their own experiences with the bathroom. These designs showcase different cultures, different backgrounds, and different stories to tell about how we will shape our “bathroom” today, and in the future. 


--------------------------------

LAVANITY
Designed by THINKK Studio


More than often, the functions inside a bathroom are designed to separate the “wet space” (the sink area) from the “dry space” (the vanity area where you groom yourself and change clothes). However, if we delve deeper into people’s daily routines, they often overlap the functions of these two spaces. For example, women who have to apply make up in the morning have to switch back and forth from their vanity area to the sink area to wash their make-up brushes on an everyday basis. Lavanity (Lavatory + Vanity) showcases new possibilities to unite these two spaces together, to minimise space redundancy, and blur the boundaries between the bathroom and the vanity area, offering a more functional space that better suits real-life usage. 

Materials : powder coated aluminium, teak wood, leather

UN-SEPARATION
Designed by STUDIO248/ Purim Kraiya


“Un-Separation” refers to a space that is not confined by any partition or boundary. As the city grows, space has become a commodity, which gives rise to multi-function rooms, where one single space offers many functions without the need to be separated by doors; for instance, cooking area, living area, sleeping area can be combined into one space. Answering to the modern lifestyle and the increasingly limited space in the city, Un-Separation creates a new function for an existing space, letting users choose where to change clothes, a function which is no longer confined to the bathroom behind closed doors. This makes it perfect for urban dwellers who have to share living spaces together.

Materials : ash wood, leather

MOBILE LIBRARY & MOBILE LAUNDRY
Designed by STUDIO248/ Jakkapun Charinrattana


Different spaces in the house exude different characteristics that influence our way of using each particular space. Similarly, when it comes to reading, the type of book also determines the specific time and space where it will be read. For instance, most people begin reading the newspaper as a morning routine on the dining table, enjoy reading magazines in the toilet, and end their day with a night-time novel on the bed. As people move around the house for different reading experiences, the conventional “static” bookshelf might no longer be valid. The Mobile Library offers a more “personalised” book storage system that allows the user to move the books to the desired location with ease. It consists of sub-folders that people can categorise different type of books as they would in a library.


Another item from the Mobile Series, Mobile Laundry is a laundry container designed to blend in with the décor of any modern house. Considered as a piece of furniture that should be admired for its aesthetics as well as function, the homeowner no longer has to hide their usual laundry basket in the bathroom.

Materials : teak wood, leather, granite stone

BUG Collection
Designed by Rui Pereira & Ryosuke Fukusada



This collection aims to create a deeper connection between the bathroom

area and the rest of the house, by revisiting furniture typologies.

We wanted to use a natural material that could co-habit with the moist

atmosphere of the space. Wood was our first choice, but it requires a lot of

maintenance.

Since we have been working with cork in other projects, we found it to be

the perfect solution for this one in particular due to its unique properties:

impermeability to liquids, thermal and acoustic insulator, hypoallergenic

and soft touch.

Our interest in creating a bridge between our cultural backgrounds gave

birth to this collection. We drew inspiration from the relation between the

Japanese ‘geta’ flip flops and the portuguese cork tradition and how to

conciliate both with the idea of ‘avoiding the wet floor’.


Materials : Cork, Steel

SIGNS
Designed by Jeremy Murier & Daniel Martinez


SIGNS  is a creation that transforms the mirror as an element related to the bathroom, combined with the  exploration of the nautical flags codes. Coming up with a communicative object that announces a “Welcome” in the space that is located. Creating an unexpected surprise with the first meeting due to the combination of the clean aesthetics together with a graphic game that creates the reflections and shadows of the surrounding elements.


Materials : Copper (Matt & Brilliant finish)
