Cascade Washbasin Collection Washbasin by Maria Toro, Nicolas Ochoa and Luis Hurtado

Home > Winners > #63234


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cascade Washbasin Collection

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Washbasin

INSPIRATION:
Cascade refers to the natural flow of water. The cascade is the inspiring element, a place where water acquires strength and power. The water becomes a molder element instead of a moldable one, it goes from material to instrument, with its natural fall the water obtains energy, and through time, the ability to transform harder materials.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Cascade washbasin collection is a family of products brought in three different setup configurations: undermounted, overmounted and vessel. Inspired by the strength of the waterfall, the design makes an emphasis on the perceived quality. The thick walls and subtle lines give it a bold and refined appearance. The hallmark of these products is a flowing line, a single journey around the product that ends in the characteristic falling movement of the cascade, hinting a slight gesture towards the user.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Cascade washbasin collection has design details that enhance usability and cleanability. The flowing surface around the product avoids spilling water. The semi-flat well surface keeps liquids inside the sink and prevents accidents.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Cascade project started in June 2016 in Bogota and finished in September 2017 in Bogota, it will be launch into the market in March 2018.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
the Cascade washbasin collection uses 2 different types of techniques for making the products. One is a high-pressure technology from Porvair PLC; in this method, a resin mold is used. The second technique is called BMC (Banco de Moldes Colgandes, in English: banks hanging molds) with plaster molds, this method is implemented to form the vessel design.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Vessel 460 x 370 x 140 mm, Undermounted 487 x 421 x 175 mm, Overmounted 500 x 400 x 176 mm.

TAGS:
washbasin, robust design, corona, Colombia, cascade, sink, bathroom, ceramic

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research started with an ethnographic study of Latin American families with a focus on Colombia. The aim of this approach to users was to find valuable aesthetic and usability insights for the product collection. The next research target was the commercial team and installers, with their support, we found key insights about perceive quality and technical requirements that were valuable for the final design. The main insight is the need for a product that looks strong and durable, a life partner for families.

CHALLENGE:
The Cascade concept was a challenge for reaching the right appeal, as robust designs tend to mimic old fashion styles. Moreover, the vessel washbasin thick walls and the variable thickness of the overmounted design demanded a new technic to put the products in the kiln and achieve a perfect vitreous finish.
