Lariana is a unique bath collection designed for Agape and it is a homage to Lake Como. The design of the bathtub is based on early 20th century Milanese architecture, featuring clean lines and a compact silhouette.
The collection also has two stylish washbasins, one with an oval format and other with a round shape. Both feature a curved bowl with a contrasting angular exterior and are supported by a small monolith. These designs are available in either Cristalplant® or marble.
Inspired by the wonders of architecture, the Rigo bathroom furniture system was designed by Urquiola for Agape. In this minimalist collection, two parallel beams run across the wall to create a linear opportunity to lay the washbasin and its accessories on.
Rigo also features a detailed set of trays and containers for a more efficient approach to the modern day bathroom. Patricia Urquiola used marble and wood as well as anodised aluminium in order to increase the aesthetic value and richness of the collection.
Laufen’s SaphirKeramik has set a real design trend for bathrooms and Urquiola fully embraced the material. Her aim was to explore formal and functional properties as well as the material’s decorative aspects and turn them into an elegant, innovative collection.
This exceptional collection is best defined by its expressiveness and minimalist style. Its formal language plays with arcs and angles, emphasising the slender lines of the exceptional material.
