H2O is an elegant Vaselli bathroom collection, designed by Irene Goldberg. Consisting of a bathroom unit, shower tray, bathtub and accessories, it is inspired by the idea of research and innovation behind a scientific laboratory to develop a successful blend of two natural materials: stone and metal.
Stone has been used in the ritual of bathing since ancient times. It remains the substance, which comes into contact with the water and the body, whereas the pure white coated metal gently embraces the stone units.
The shower tray is a variation of the same concept of the H2O bathroom unit. The tray is made by hollowing out a single slab of marble to create an undulating movement of circles, which brings to mind the unpredictable arrangement of laboratory glassware.
More specifically, the two intersecting circles provide a bathtub in the large circle and a practical, teak, anti-slip area within the smaller radius.
One side of the shower tray holds the iron grille, which acts as a screen.
Irene Goldberg’s vision is one of contrast between the softness of the stone elements and the rigidity of the metal structure containing them. It recalls the balance between traditional craftsmanship and Vaselli’s technological innovation to create designer shapes and functions without any compromise.
