FRIEZE is the new bathroom collection designed by Marcante-Testa for Ex.t which debuted this week at the Maison&Objet furniture fair in Paris. Designed by Italian practice Marcante Testa the range is Inspired by “entablatures” (a horizontal part in classical architecture that rests on the columns and consists of architrave, frieze, and cornice).
Designed by Roy Lichtenstein, the project is articulated through different levels of signs, materials and colours where the washbasin stars as central element of the bathroom to organize the accessory elements. The architectural approach of the designers involves the entire spatial dimension of the bathroom: the position of the sink is defined from a central wall strip, the upper and a lower part of the wall can be covered in different materials, creating space to install the mirror, shelves, furniture and towel hooks. Featuring three washbasins Frieze One High, Frieze One Low and Frieze Two Lined, along with various accessories, it offers a very versatile system both spatially and stylistically. The combination of different shapes, colours, finishes and materials allows a lot of unique and original combinations.
