Designers Jean-François D'Or and Frédérique Ficheroulle have developed a modular system designed to let users create "a bathroom that does not look like a bathroom" (+ slideshow).
Designed for Belgian kitchen and bathroom brand Vika, the Ingrid range features fixtures, fittings and accessories that feature contrasting straight and curved lines, gridded surface patterns and a variety of finishes.
Items in the collection include sinks, cupboards, mirrors, lighting, power sockets, and various accessories like hooks and faucets, all designed so users can customise their standard bathroom.
"The grid is a tool to invite users to each design their own wellness living space, creating their own identity and atmosphere depending on their lifestyle," said Ficheroulle.
The range was developed as part of an initiative titled 5X5 for the Biennale Interieur fair, which took place in Kortrijk last October.
For the project, five manufacturing companies were given the opportunity to work with a duo made up of a junior and a senior designer for a year, to develop a new product.
"At the start of the project, we thought about how to increase the comfort of people during their bathroom experience," said Ficheroulle. "A bathroom that does not look like a bathroom – much more than a room to wash up in, it's a place to start off your day and to end it."
Prototypes of the Ingrid collection were shown at Biennale Interieur. Materials available include porcelain, oak, leather, powder-coating finishes and others available on request.
