Bath Fixtures and Furnishings:
Onto by Duravit
Duravit's new Onto bath collection by Matteo Thun looks at the idea of console on ceramic instead of ceramic on console. The sink becomes the support for the console, which clads the basin in a smooth curve of plywood. The sandwich-like structure of the plywood is exposed at the edges to highlight the material. Bonded layers prevent warping and the edges are oiled to prevent water absorption, making it suitable for use in the bath. The collection comprises 16 furniture designs, illuminated mirrors, an upholstered drawer unit, a tall cabinet, a floor-standing vanity unit, and tubs.
