Ritho / Washbasin


The project was based on the contrast between the urban and the natural landscape, the technological and the handmade.
The top part made in ceramic with irregular shapes suggests a stone, and propose an innovative finishing combining the rough and matte external with a shiny interior. The base consists on a minimalistic metallic structure that evokes the rationality of the city.
As result, the ceramic bowl lifted up by the pedestal creates the idea of an important moment for celebration of nature, that highlights the special instant when we are in contact with the clear water, the moment to refresh, purify yourself and renew your mind.
