Fuji 70R with console
Washbasin and console
Fuji was born from an accurate research aimed to the development of a very simple product with an emphasis on detail from which the idea of the central detail arrived.Scarabeo is a company producing high-quality products:our design aims to make it clear at a glance.For this reason we stressed the idea of soft surfaces and tried to look for a characterising graphic element giving strong personality to the sink.A small accessories line complete the offer:console,towel rack,mirror and shelf.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This elegant design creates emotion thanks to the smooth and graphic lines but is at the same time very functional.A careful choice of materials and the precision of the manufacturing process guarantee a high quality product
.Ceramic is a low-tech material used as a high-tech one,getting it closer to materials having softer outlines and hiding the drain hole with the ceramic plate.The console in steel bar has been chosen to give the same charm and elegance of the sink and to make the bathroom system cosier we inserted a shelf in wood
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The console table can be used as a support for the basin, as a towel bar and as a countertop for towels or other things.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in July 2013 in Vittorio Veneto and finished in April 2014. It was exhibited in Salone del Mobile in Milan in April 2014.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
the basin is made of ceramic; the console table is made of iron-rod and the shelf of solid wood.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
wash basin: 700 x 430 x 140
console table: 790 x 440 x 750

At first we have tried to distinguish the main competitors design language and comparing it with Scarabeo's.So,we have identified the unexplored areas,which the company could work with.The objective was to design a simple yet unusual object,with a light humor and a touch of femininity but without emphasising too much on these characteristics.A traditional methodology was used.After the previous analysis,we started sketching,sketching and sketching.Fuji seemed to be the best solution to overcome where the companies portfolio lacks.
The main issue after the choice of the concept was its development.
Because Scarabeo is an artisanal company, the 3D files were not the right format for them. So we had to print the projects and go there to make the first prototype together with the craftsmen, trying to make it more similar to the concept.
