Everyday elegance: Dornbracht presents Gentle
At the ISH trade fair in Frankfurt (15 – 19 March 2011), fittings manufacturer Dornbracht is presenting Gentle, a new product that fits seamlessly and elegantly into an everyday bathroom context. Something special in the day-to-day routine – Gentle represents quality of function and serenity of form. The Gentle truely expresses everyday elegance.
"Gentle helps to bring collective consciousness to a modern home," says Mike Meiré. "Gentle fits perfectly into a bright, open architectural language informed by clear lines and tactile materials such as wood, fabric, glass and ceramic. Urban typologies with memory-rich qualities."
"Gentle is the result of architect Matteo Thun vision for a new stylist, classic design", explains Managing Director Andreas Dornbracht. "Unlike other Dornbracht series, what makes Gentle so special is precisely how classic its form is. It signifies a very deliberate decision to open up our portfolio of traditional design."
Gentle's name describes its soothing character. It simultaneously implies something soft-tempered and cultivated. The lines of this easy-on-the-hands series has a stylish masculine undertone.
"Our main idea behind the design was based on simplicity, elegance and durability," says Matteo Thun. "Gentle is effortless and self-explanatory. The reserved form, the clear lines and the tactile experience make Gentle special." The result is a pleasing natural design that is there throughout the day without being obtrusive.
Gentle comprises fittings for washbasin, bidet, shower and bathtub and comes in chrome. Available for delivery in
summer 2011. The product was designed by Matteo Thun & Partners.
