Just a few weeks in the past, I wrote about Italian design firm antoniolupi on this blogpost and launched you to their world of rigorously designed and crafted improvements for the lavatory. The corporate repeatedly invests in innovation, expertise and creativity and collaborates with famend worldwide architects and designers for his or her stunning, timeless and punctiliously crafted items. As we speak, we can have a better look into one in every of their latest improvements which let you add character and a private contact to any toilet: Cristalmood.
Cristalmood was created in-house by antoniolupi because of their steady analysis. It’s a resin that’s manually poured into moulds and sanded manually after extraction to take away all imperfections inside and outside and so as to add brightness to the item. This guide course of makes every bit distinctive, with slight variations in shade, dimension and floor texture. Two sinks of the identical design won’t ever be equivalent.
This materials innovation, out there in 13 completely different colours, is ideal for producing sinks and combines nicely with different supplies for a refined combination of each shade and materials texture. Take Albume for instance, designed by Carlo Colombo, which mixes a stable base and a coloured basin. This design affords so many prospects for customisation and lets you discover the right personalised piece to your area. You possibly can mix a black marquinia marble base with a Nebbia basin, or go for a extra female look with a white carrara marble base and a Ginger basin, the chances are infinite.
After introducing Albume, the analysis into the chances of Cirstalmood continued and consequently, Carlo Colombo and Andrea Lupi collaborated on the design of Opale and Vitreo (seen within the final two photos). The identify ‘Opale’ refers back to the geometry and the infinite reflections of treasured stones present in nature whereas as ‘Vitreo’ is a gem that ornaments the setting with its decagonal form which produces infinite reflections generated by the perimeters of the design.
Cristalmood consists of top quality polyester resin and coloring pigments which will be cleaned with frequent detergents. The transparency of the fabric lets you see the move of the water, which is such a pleasant impact. The fabric could be very sturdy, simply cleaned and maintained and can be utilized in a choice of design sinks, a shower tub and even smaller residence objects. I had the oportunity to attempt the Masa and Nisi vases in Amber and Ocra in my own residence and the standard on these hand-finished objects is superb. I like the way in which they’re translucent, however opaque on the similar time, permitting you to see the contents of what’s inside, however fading them out in a subtile means.
The Reflex bath tub designed by AL Studio (seen within the first two photos) is the primary clear bathtub tub within the antoniolupi assortment and it’s an actual assertion piece. This freestanding design is customisable into any of the 13 signature colours and I like how the completely different colours change the look of the design. The black Fumé materials offers the Reflex design a heavier look, whereas as the colours add a lighter and extra playful contact to the natural traces of this balanced design.
The mixtures and personalisation prospects with Cristalmood are infinite and the designs are good for including character to any toilet design. This blogpost was written in collaboration with antoniolupi , nevertheless all opinions are my very own after all. If you need to know extra in regards to the model and their big selection of loo merchandise, be sure that to take a look at their web site.
