WARP, DESIGN CARLO DAL BIANCO
Collezione Warp in DuPont™ Corian®; design Carlo Dal Bianco; foto Rexa Design, tutti i diritti riservati.
Warp molds, curves and distorts DuPont™ Corian® techno-surface to create all the elements of the bathroom system. A wall lined with DuPont™ Corian® tiles, extending three-dimensionally outwards, uses the same material to create all the elements of the bathroom system.
The Warp project is a perfect expression of the language used by Carlo Dal Bianco: it blends the contemporary with the past. The project originates from the classical two-dimensional development of a modular system of tiling using DuPont™ Corian®, an extremely flexible and workable material. The wall takes shape, combining a composition of large and small elements, and superimposing a dedicated system of elements: mirrors, receptacles, bathtubs, washbasins, shelves and shower trays with various accessories. These three-dimensional elements “spring out” of the wall, warping themselves to emphasize the possibilities and characteristics of this noble material.
The distorted effect that gives the project a contemporary feel, is contrasted by the reassuringly classical and iconographic language of the diamonded tiles, reminiscent of the past. The boiserie can come out from the bathroom to decorate and equip other house environments.
