Glacial white lets the swooping shape speak in the absence of color – no need to capture liquid in a basin or pierce this vessel, it simply sends water down to a floor drain and accents its path along the way.
Why such a sculptural approach? Aside from adding interest to an ordinary bathroom, it also accentuates water usage, encouraging people to (hopefully) use less. They call this piece “Abisko,” explaining that it takes its name from a Swedish National Park. Developed to appeal to people who care about conservation, the basin evokes the “freedom and simplicity” of pure, unspoiled water sources in nature.
“Abisko means a free and moderate treatment of water, without drain pipes and other unnecessary details around. the simplicity should enhance the water to something more valuable then ‘just water’. pure water is not a matter of course, but an exclusive product of nature that shouldn’t be accumulated in big tubs. just like in nature, you find your own way to catch the water to be used with carefulness and moderation.”
“Abisko is with its organic form available for everyone. the design allows free and creative usage compare to traditional basins. why not wash your tired feet in a mountain spring during your stay at the hotel? Abisko is also easy to keep clean and need no special maintenance.”
