06/02/2019 - 2019 is for Ex.t
a year full of femininity: the Florentine bathroom brand inaugurates a new collaboration with the two designers of Milanese studio Bernhardt-Vella
. Two women, friends and professionals with a common vision of design based on emotion and poetry. For the first time they challenge themselves by designing for bathroom interiors, using a creative approach that comes from the home design world.
For Ex.t they’ve created Nouveau
: a collection of washbasins, cabinets and mirrors featuring geometric and sinuous lines, born from a balance of basic and classic shapes such as circles, semi-circles and parallelepipeds, creating a game of volumes in a succession of full and empty spaces. Freely inspired by early twentieth century Art Deco, the collection takes refined suggestions from that era and reworks them with the taste and sensitivity of a contemporary perspective.
Nouveau washbasin is characterized by asymmetrical shapes with bold edges that serve as practical support surfaces. It can be wall mounted or a countertop - supported by a metal structure that elegantly defines its shape. The structure is available in brushed bronze, satin-finish brass or matt black finishes and can be combined with various accessories such as towel rails, wooden drawers, marble or stone storage tops to offer a functional and complete product. With Nouveau, for the first time Ex.t inserts color in a collection of LivingTec washbasins. The first color proposal is an antique Rosa Cipria.
Ribbon + Rest
Along with this new entry, Ex.t confirms its long-lasting partnership with Norm Architects studio and German designer Sebastian Herkner, presenting the Rest Armchair
and Ribbon Square
Norm Architects enrich Rest
collection with a small upholstered armchair. The design is inspired by the way Japanese people are accustomed to sitting on the floor and lean on the surrounding furniture to rest: thus, the low and wide backrest can be a regular support for the back when in a sitting position or a comfortable support for a short rest if standing. Like the entire Rest line, the small armchair is characterized by a tubular metal structure refined with small brass details. Available in black eco-leather or green velvet, the cushion and backseat create a graphic game of circles that overlap when viewed from different angles.
Ex.t on ARCHIPRODUCTS
Sebastian Herkner, nominated designer of the year 2019 by Maison & Objet, enriches Ribbon
collection launched in Milan 2018 with Ribbon Square
: a square-shaped wall-mounted washbasin with small dimensions, designed for cosy spaces. Like the oval sink and the bathtub, Ribbon Square is made in LivingTec and finished with a satin steel or brass band, a functional and aesthetic element that inspires the entire collection, giving brightness and preciousness to the product.
