A different bathroom design

Plasticity + design 

     When plasticity and design meet each other are able to create special pieces like this one. Context looks like carefully studied and creativity joined together. Breaking the rules and thinking again looks like a perfect combination for a, at least, really interesting design result.


     Born in 1979 in Osaka, Japan. He studied product design at the Kanazawa College of Art from 1998 to 2002.

After transferring to Italy, he graduated from the Domus Academy, Master in Interior and Living Design course.

     The contemporary tiles industry is erasing the boundaries between natural and industrial, raw andprocessed materials.Nowadays is virtually possible to simulate the appearance and texture of any material in ceramic.Like Cotto’s Marmo granito tile, which gives you the feeling of a natural stone. Tile sashi (slice inJapanese) is a collection of bathroom furniture inspired by the act of slicing a raw material in order to build something new.By slicing the tiles in thin strips we are able to give a three-dimensional configuration to a fl atmaterial, making it become part of the surface of the furniture and, in this way, mimetizing it with thebathroom architecture. In order to give a softer appeal to the tiles, pastel colour is used in the junctions and other natural materials such as red clay and cork are mixed.
