Concept

After the acclaimed preview at the Salone del Mobile, the innovative shower system, Albero, becomes the protagonist of the next Ceramica Flaminia exhibition at the Cersaie 2010. Massimo Abati has intentionally transformed an everyday household object into something very evocative. The shapes of the structure that reproduce the trunk of a tree and the green of the controls that reminds us of leaves, create a symbolic, fun and extremely practical domestic object. A hint of nature in the bathroom. The shower tray is composed of ceramic tiles which can be set in square or rectangular compositions of various dimensions. The tree itself can be placed in any corner of the selected composition while the designs in relief decorate the tiles as well as guarantee a non-slip surface. Once again, Ceramica Flaminia proposes an alternative to the usual use of ceramics through an ambitious and “visionary” project in which, as Massimiliano Abati explains, “an interpretation is applied to a function”.
