A-Cero is perhaps best known for their architecture (and one-off oddities), but has a knack for statement-making interior designs and furnishings as well – this one-off venture into bathrooms, though, certainly befits their style. This ultramodern bathroom collection is just the thing to make a minimalist space feel out of this world.
The so-called Spirit Collection created for L’Antic Colonial features a set of interlocking pieces that can be arranged like artwork on the wall – a curved glass mirror, white ceramic sink with an independent metal fixture above and organic stone-faced wooden vanity below.
What is perhaps most interesting here is the transition the designers made from their usual architectural fare, in this case blending emotive originality with modular functionality and mass-market availability.
More from the designers
“Following the success of the Spirit collection last year, L’Antic Colonial and A-cero recently got together once again to create new designs for a series first launched at the last edition of Cersaie, in Bologna. The latest additions to a collection inspired by architecture and a combination of straight and curved lines comprise a washbasin and mirror, three bathroom units and two wall coverings.”
“Spirit II presents three new models, all with the same common denominator: interplay between lines and symmetry. The units all come in two versions, one that slopes rightward or leftward, so that the collection’s components can be combined in varying ways to suit each particular setting. The units in the Spirit II collection feature a wood veneer finish. With a bold pleasant-feeling finish, they come in a choice of Roble Intenso (brownish wood with dark veins), or Roble Ceniza (a greyish surface with contrasting black veins).”
“The Spirit II washbasin is conspicuous for its vertical design, unlike its earlier more horizontal-looking counterpart. Measuring 53.1×58.3×50 cm, it stands out for its curved face where the taps go, sloping round to the bowl. Available in A-cero Dark marble or A-cero Gloss limestone, it can be combined with bathrooms units from the collection to infuse smaller bathrooms with a sensation of visual harmony.”
