Milan 2013: Lavanity by THINKK Studio
As this year was a Euroluce year at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, new bathroom products and fixtures were hard to find. However, showing at a space in Ventura Lambrate was an impressive collective exhibition called Another Perspective that was curated by ceramic manufacturers Cotto. The brand worked with 5 designers to create a collection that re-interprets the bathroom space.
One of the stand-out projects was Lavanity by Bangkok-based designers THINKK Studio.
The design aims to bring together elements of the bathroom space with the vanity space to create a seamless grooming area.
The freestanding unit features a teak dressing table with a ceramic basin and shelf for toiletries, an upholstered stool, a wall lamp, a full length mirror and a powder coated aluminum frame with rails for hanging leather storage pouches and a wooden jewelry holder.
