DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Uplift Tech Cabinets

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bathroom Furniture

INSPIRATION:
Robern wanted to provide a program that could meet the unique needs faced with executing complex, multi-space projects for clients with discerning tastes. Our designer identified that these projects required more than a cookie-cutter approach calling for versatility and flexibility to adapt to the many spatial configurations that come naturally with the job. The Profiles Collection is a one-stop shop of product choices no matter the project or space requirements.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Add a little drama to your styling space with statement pieces that won’t sacrifice modern functionality. Introducing Robern’s Profiles Collection - mirrors, medicine cabinets, vanities, and lighting that pays tribute to art deco with a modern twist. Clean, modern styling and the latest in technology come together in an integrated approach offering ala carte cabinetry and vanity sizes, lighting options and finishes for sophisticated solutions.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The beauty of this product is that is asks nothing new of the user. It is a simple design but uses Robern's Modularity System to allow custom arrays of mirrors, cabinets, and lights to build an array of product to suit the project needs.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 2017 and finished in April of 2018 in Bristol PA. It was exhibited in the National Kitchen and Bath (KBIS) show in Orlando FL in January of 2018.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Profiles Collection is primarily made from mirrored glass and aluminum. The aluminum is extruded from 6063 Alloy, machined, polished, in the case of plating, or acid etched in the case of gold or black anodizing. The glass is typical silvered mirror or in the case of the drawer system, colored or painted glass is used.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The medicine cabinets are offered in a range of sizes, with widths of 12 inches, 16 inches, 20 inches, and 24 inches; heights in 30-inch and 40-inch choices; and, 4-inch and 6-inch depths. Profiles modular lighting is offered in 30-inch and 40-inch heights and 3.5-inch and 5-inch widths. It has a high lumen output and 90+ CRI (Color Rendering Index) to render remarkable, realistic color.

TAGS:
Retro, Profile, Framed, Chrome, Nickel, Gold, Black, Bathroom, Cabinets, Lighting, Mirrors

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Architectural details in high-end and Euro-inspired bathrooms has made a resurgence in cities like New York and Chicago. Historical data on bathroom design and specifically cabinetry and lighting has been archived by Robern and Kohler going back over 100 years.

CHALLENGE:
The project was based on the revival of the 1920's design aesthetic using chrome and nickel plated details in bathroom cabinetry and lighting. Due to Robern's involvement in custom high-end architectural projects, we are regularly receiving requests for this type of detail. The challenge was really in the details, producing the parts with consistent tolerances and attention to finishing detail. All parts are customer machined and plated or anodized in state-of-the art facilities.
