RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As a concept all the the objects of the set are free standing and have peculiar shapes.Therefore an intensive research has been conducted to develop production methods,assembly parts and auxiliary parts.

CHALLENGE:
MONOBLOCK BASIN: The shape of the object is so that the surface area is very small and there is no connection to the wall.In order to achieve this goal a special assembly part has been developed to connect the basin to the floor.On the other hand special apparatuses have been developed for casting,transportation and firing of the greenware with such small foot area. CLOSE COUPLE: It is a combination of wc pan and monoblock cistern.As the seat area of the wc pan is flat,the wavy appearance was given to the seat.The seat overlaps the wc pan top surface and bearing the waves at the sides which follows the contours of the seat to create an image as if they are one piece.Again the top of the cistern bears the same wavy appearance of the family. BATHTUB: It has similar appearance as basin.The ergonomic features has taken into consideration in internal design.The outer part has been designed so that it hides the joining parts and the foot part without scarifying the overall appearance of the family.
