Vela / bathroom concept


Vela is a bathroom concept inspired by material specific possibilities of solid surface, wood and concrete. The interior matches the idea to be recognized as close to nature: rocks and wood are natural phenomenons. For this interior design the shapes and colours of natural appearances are abstracted in order to create a comfortable environment within bathrooms. The pillar in the middle of the bathroom unites many functions such as water control for bathtub and shower. The shape of an oval triangle repeats throughout the design. The shower can be entered steplessly with a slide inclination within the floor in order to ensure effluent.
