Oasis Bathroom Sanitaryware by Kostas Metaxas

Home > Winners > #36279


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Oasis

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bathroom Sanitaryware

INSPIRATION:
Oasis has been inspired by over 30 years of travel and living in the most exciting major cities of the world.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
OASIS is the distillation of the moods, shapes and icons absorbed from over 30 years of travel and living in major cities, distilled into a private sanctuary. Paris reflects opulence, elegence and sculptural grandeur. Milano, sporty motorboats, slender Pinin-Farina curves and racy colours. London is eclectic Black TaxiCab culture. Barcelona bathes the eyes in vibrant colours and exotic shapes. Vienna is cream-of-Hapsburg, whilst New York stares towards the future.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The operation flow of these bathrooms is to create a temple or sanctuary with objects that are sculptures to elevate a daily ritual into a relaxing pleasure and chance for self-reflection.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project was started in Paris in February 2013 and finished in Athens end of August 2014.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Oasis uses the current stat-of-the-art in sanitaryware [toilet and sink-basin] hi-pressure tooling as well as traditional drawn-plastics technology [acrylic, fibreglass and carbon-fibre] as used in the luxury motor boat or car industries to form the bathtubs. The objects can also be formed in solid metal using traditional sculpture technology [sand-casting or even lost wax].

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Bathtubs 1500 x 750mm Toilet Suites 400 X 600 X 600mm Sink Basins 400mm bowls

TAGS:
bathtubs, toilets, bidet, sculpture, sinks, basins, sanitaryware, bathrooms, luxury bathrooms

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Sanitaryware Technology has been limited to manufacturing quality with emphasis on making items small and ultra-minimal to fit into a tiny closet. Sink Basins have gone from the notion of water storage to water flow. Toilets have become more technical - electronic flushing to feet warming to music playing! OASIS brings pleasure to a task normally seen as a chore.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to go against the ultra-minimalist, hide-it in a closet tendency and create sculptures that were the centre of attention, that would put the pleasure back into escaping into your own private sanctuary.
