Morphing Console by Kos

Designed by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, the Morphing Console for Italian bath fittings company Kos is a washbasin stand that melts into the wall like a white ghost. Its simple shape and streamlined design feel completely contemporary: fluid, clean, and seamless. With only two legs, the Morphing Console morphs into the bathroom’s very structure, so unobtrusive that it virtually disappears.

Given its modern appeal, it would seem contrary to find the Morphing Console reminiscent of anything—but it reminds me of those large, gleaming, white industrial sinks once found in industrial kitchens and schoolhouse bathrooms. A little bit farmhouse and a lot laundry utility, the Morphing Console manages to allude to classic pieces from the mid-century.

With an overall height of 900 mm (35 inches), a depth of 515 mm (21 inches), and a width of 800 mm (31 inches), the Morphing Console fits well in both small and larger spaces. Keep it minimalistic in an all-white bathroom or punch it up with contrasting color—against a red or black wall, the Morphing Console stands out dramatically.

About the Manufacturer: Kos began in 1998 as a company that produced whirlpool tubs and multifunctional shower cabins. In 2001, the Italian company hired internationally recognized designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba to design their entire collection and oversee the company’s art direction. Ludovica + Roberto Palomba’s designs “reinvented the bathroom setting in type and morphology.” Then in 2007, Kos entered the Zucchetti group, and the two leading brands were “united by a shared philosophy and purpose.” Zucchetti and Kos design bathroom products for cosmopolitan clients who want to build “domestic panoramas.”
