24/02/2023 - Diesel Living with Iris Ceramica porcelain stoneware surfaces
were chosen for the renovation of an old apartment in the heart of Vilnius, Lithuania, designed by architect Prunskaitè and her studio Prusta.
The compositional project resulted from design expedients that led to define new spaces and architectural elements in a mix & match material between wood, plaster and concrete. A careful study of the materials was also done in the bathrooms to create heterogeneous scenarios.
An ad hoc study and material expedients run throughout the house
Bright and with a large shower compartment, the bathroom of the master bedroom is covered with Grunge Concrete Scratch
, the porcelain stoneware surface of Diesel Living with Iris Ceramica
with an industrial mood that recalls time-worn concrete, marked by scratches and cracks. The washbasin area and part of the shower interior are highlighted by the tones of Grunge Concrete Scratch Black
, while the other walls and floor play with the ice color of Grunge Concrete Scratch White

In keeping with the style of the other rooms, in the children’s bathroom the Diesel Living with Iris Ceramica porcelain stoneware surfaces cover wall portions: the area around the vanity top and the outside of the bath with the Ribbed Black
coating, with metal and craquelé finishes. On the other walls of the bathroom was applied the Camp Army Canvas White
collection, a surface that evokes the military textile texture playing with unpredictable effects of roughness.
Industrial furniture details and surfaces
The vitality of the project is visible thanks to the way in which the two floors of the house are exploited. The house is enhanced by design expedients such as the cubic structure on the ground floor, between the entrance and the living room, which crosses the plant diagonally concealing a large closet inside.
The choices of the Diesel Living with Iris Ceramica collection also generate colour contrasts in the other bathrooms
The ground floor also consists of large rooms, such as the kitchen characterized by an extreme simplicity of spatial components; the living area whose focal element is the wall fireplace; a double bedroom with study and guest bathroom. The upper floor, subject to profound changes that have affected the master bedroom and the children’s bathroom, is accessible by a light spiral staircase, almost suspended.
