Milan-based architects and designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba have been working with Italian bathroom brand Kos since 2001. Together, over the years, they have created an impressive portfolio of designs including three striking washbasin collections that are united by their simple lines, perfect proportions and balance between form and function.
Sophistication, innovation and design are the values "‹"‹that unite the collection of KOS washbasins.
Italian designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba explain: "Kos products are made to relate to space. We have studied forms, surfaces and proportions that are capable of creating a 'golden relationship' and of imparting 'perfect balance' among the components of our project: rich in style and designer flair, they fit harmoniously into any ambience."
Introduced in 2011, the Morphing line is made up of Morphing Console, Morphing Unit (a console with an integrated washbasin) and Morphing Steel (another console with an integrated washbasin). The flexible design nods at classic models, while being characterised by fluid, mutant aesthetics.
The square and round Faraway freestanding washbasins were launched in 2009. The round version is characterized by an asymmetrical base, while the square version can be combined with cabinets made of heat-treated ash.

Finally, the sculptural Lab 01, 02 and 03 were all launched in 2008 with smooth flowing forms made from silky Cristalplant® or Pietraluce®. Lab 03 integrates a handy towel rail into its design. For more information email email@example.com call +39.0322.954700 or visit www.zucchettikos.it

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."
