Salone 2024 Preview: Inbani’s Heritage 50

The groove is the thing with Patrick Norguet’s Heritage 50 Washbasin for Inbani.

Exhibiting next week at Salone del Mobile.Milano, Heritage 50 is the latest iteration in Inbani’s Heritage collection, a grouping of washbasins and bathroom furniture with a formidable, monolithic presence.

Like all washbasins in the collection, this one takes a cue from classical Greek Architecture: “recreating the elegance of Greek columns through the presence of vertical grooves that give the object rhythm and vibration.”

Indeed, Heritage 50 manages the nifty trick of embodying stillness/solidity and movement at once, its monolithic nature nicely juxtaposed with the deep grooves, whose vertical orientation suggests a palpable rising effect.

The showstopper here is the solid surface basin, but Heritage 50 also features an understated support shelf for some nice separation off the ground.
