Rilievo Bath Ambience

Nominee
2019-20
Gessi has one established tradition of creating bathroom concepts that inspire sensations of purity and wellbeing, visual order and coordination in the space, products conceived to be beneficial to the user’s body and mind. Gessi engaged the international architectural Studio HBA (acronym for Hirsh Bedner Associates) to design a collection embodying all the values of simple elegance, clarity and harmony people demand today from a private space.


A CONCEPT OF TIDINESS AND HARMONY
If harmony, based on order, is dictated by a mathematical / geometric ratio between parts, the maximum expression of purity of form is – according to HBA’s intuition- the enrolment of a circle into a square. This geometric and architectural figure has been greatly evocative through time and across continents and cultures. The circle evokes eternal movement; the square symbolizes eternity and immutability. The coupling of these two geometries becomes the dynamic image of purity: the transition towards perfection and equilibrium. A circle inscribed into a square is the theme that RILIEVO by HBA for Gessi brilliantly brings to life. This design gives gracing touch and sight and it evokes that body and soul equilibrium take center stage in the bathroom. A new balance between style, emotion and functionality.


THE DESIGN OF PURITY
The concept of the circle inscribed in the square is taken up both in plan and in profile, on all perspectives on the product. In plan the rounded body on the back of the tap is inscribed in the square of its base. Sideways the same pattern is repeated on the circular cut of the lower profile framed in the square linearity of the body of the tap; finally, the circle inscribed in the square pattern is presented in an elegantly discreet way by the round detail embossed under the square end of the handle.


A DESIGN GRACING EVERY ENVIRONMENT
The hybrid nature of the design with its encounter of curvy and straight, makes RILIEVO match perfectly with both round and square shapes and fit perfectly in extremely diverse environments, be them minimalistic or decorative. The nimble aesthetic versatility of RILIEVO is an advantage for a product conceived for functional and elegant bathrooms in the world of hospitality as well as in private residences,
