SALLE DE BAIN
The Salle de Bain series plays on an oft-overlooked architectural detail: the bathroom tile.
Everyday it exists in the corner of our eye, an invisible actor of our daily routine.
Out of context it becomes an object full of the rituals it witnessed.
On the "wrong" surface it attracts the eye - desires a touch.
Used the "wrong" way it is this newly found friend - that was always there.
By displacing the familiar shape from a quotidian surface to its own distinct form, the cast-in- concrete tray becomes a stage in which you can curate and display your favorite belongings for easy use.
Three different sizes in simple geometries accommodate a myriad of items and routines.
ORIGIN: Oakland, CA.
MATERIAL: Concrete, Mirropane.
Each individual item is a single piece, hand-cast in high performance gypsum cement.
The aspect and feel is of fine ceramic with the added strength / resistance of concrete.
