Concept

Closer is the most eclectic of Zucchetti's recent creations.
Dynamic, flexible and iconic...this showerhead reinvents the movements we associate with showering.

In Closer, Zucchetti has interpreted modern life and created a product that captures the taste and sensitivity of a public that is searching for new experiences in the bathroom, both from a sensory and functional perspective.

Designer Diego Grandi’s starting point was an aim to bring the normally static bathroom space to life, through an object with strong expressive potential and plenty of scope for dynamism. “Movement was an essential concept for me right from the start, to the extent that I always imagined this piece set in the centre of the room, so that the whole environment becomes ‘the water's space’, not just a certain part of it”.

Closer distances itself from the usual formal references, instead offering a truly original, creative and functional reimagining of the shower column. It recalls the aesthetics of a lamp, and embraces all the poetics inherent to the idea of balance, capable of renewing itself and changing its appearance without warning. The cylindrical counterweight ensures that the showerhead is stable in any position and at any height, and acts as a visual counterpoint within the overall composition.

The whole structure has been designed to be adjusted and extended simply and intuitively.
It has a total of three joints, each of which has wide scope for multi-directional movement. This allows many different spatial configurations to be created, which in turn translates into an equally wide range of methods for the user to control and direct the jet of water, for a personalised bathing experience free from all restrictions.

Thanks to Closer, water can now dance in space...throwing off its usual shackles and becoming a free expression of our needs, providing unique wellbeing to experience every day.
