Domus

Colour , form and material

- Presented by Giulia Guzzini

Traditiona­lly considered the domestic space that most lends itself to being regarded with a technical emphasis, the bathroom, more than any other space in the home, is associated with its functional role. A deeper language exists, however, that concerns the world of objects. A language made up of elements that are not limited to acting on the aesthetic-formal aspects of interior architectu­re but that interpret the components within the space as an interface between the user and their rituals. In this sense, the ultra-technical world of the bathroom manages to evolve in a new dimension that opens up to experience, where perceptive and sensory dynamics transform everyday actions into a practice that expresses a way of life. Viewed in this way, the colour, form, material and texture of objects play a fundamenta­l and interconne­cted role in communicat­ing more complex meanings to the user with respect to a flat, neutral surface. The objects brought together in this product review enhance the experience of the bathroom with tactile and visual sensations through the use of angles, curves, chequering and grooves, materials warm to the touch and colour used in an expressive manner.
