Rethinking The Bathroom (Pics)
Students from ECAL reinterpret a designer collection featuring uncommon washroom accessories.
Design students from the Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL) recently presented their creations at the Langenthal’s Designers’ Saturday in Switzerland. For the exhibition, students had to reinterpret and create new objects, taking inspiration from the Axor Bouroullec bathroom collection.
Among the various accessories created by students was Giulio Parini’s Zen Tools (above image), which are sort of play sticks that can be used to draw zen garden-like art on foggy mirrors.
Élastique was another project highlighted at the exhibition. Designed by Joschua Brunn, the elastic object can be used as new way to store bathroom accessories.
The Hideaway Covers by Sarha Duquesne are beautifully designed lids that keep personal belongings in your washroom dry while you are washing hands or taking a bath.
