SWITCH by CEA

Posted in architecture, bathroom, interiors by menno1976 on April 22, 2010

At the Salone I was really impressed by the minimal design of bathroom fittings and kitchen taps manufacturer CEA.
I think the SWITCH collection is their most interesting design, I’ve never seen a light switch-design being used in bathroom taps before! I tested them myself in Milan and these fittings are very user friendly.

What I find great about the company is that it strives for making more efficient fittings (limiting capacity to 5 lit/min opposed to the standard of 12 lit/min). Furthermore CEA has developed a system that supports the installation work of the wall fittings, getting rid of the built-in parts and constitutes a universal joint for all the wall fittings, deviator taps and thermostats.

Pavé by Kreoo

So I just got back from Salone del Mobile 2010 in Milan and loved it! I spotted a couple of trends such as combining organic and synthetic materials, psychedelic flowers, and rough, tribal, natural shapes and materials.

I really liked Pavé by Kreoo (owned by Italian marble processing company Decormarmi). These stools look like giant pebbles with driftwood and they can turn around a built-in axis.
