Obliqua Design Roberto Innocenti
As our claim says, this design has been inspired by nature, this new shower system has a subtle elegance and allure in total harmony with the environment.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Obliqua, designed by Roberto Innocenti, is a new design shower by Zazzeri, which has a vertically developed shower head to create a simple, minimal look. The extremely slender Obliqua adheres to the wall with an innate elegance, naturally blending into the ambient. The clean, essential lines of Obliqua harmonize perfectly with any bathroom furnishing solution.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
All the versions of OBLIQUA offer sensations of purity and simplicity combined with high efficiency and functionality. They will provide every bathroom ambient with a harmonious beauty that naturally invites the user to enjoy moments of relaxation and meditation. Moreover, the various finishes and different models available make it possible to personalize the shower according to the user’s tastes and requirements, even in terms of the price. All these features make OBLIQUA a truly simple product that is extremely easy to choose and buy.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Obliqua’s sensational, comforting water flow is achieved through the innovative directional Flyfall Rain System that offers perfect control of water flow direction, reducing the area of water fall on the floor.
This shower system has been designed for normal personal hygiene as well to enhance psychophysical relaxation. All the models have a thermostatic mixer with high flow regulator cartridge, filters/lock and 1/2” inlets and outlets. There are also four outlets controlled by two diverters with stop (rain showerhead, waterfall, body spray, hand shower).
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
OBLIQUA is available in three versions (with slanted head, without slanted head and without slanted head with separate hand shower) each of which is available in a semi-recessed version with white LED backlighting and a built-in version without backlighting.
The inspiration came from an architectural Renaissance element, the “lesene”. Obliqua had to be a really thin steel lesene with a little thickness in all its parts, including the part outside the wall; a light element with dimensions that could fit every single bathroom
It is a new architectural way to imagine the shower room, the main idea was an empty room with water coming out from the wall. To achieve this image in reality we had to overcome some design challenges like how to maintain very low thickness (12mm) for all the length of the shower also when outside the wall, how to control the water uniform filling of vertical shower against gravity and how to let water footprint on the ground be as next as possible to the wall in order to save space.
We have solved all these challenges with the Flyfall ® water system. After Virgin and Shirò, Obliqua® is a job on one another way of us to imagine the relation with space and water.
