British designer Tom Dixon explains how he worked with VitrA to create his first ever bathroom collection in this video produced by Dezeen for the bathroom brand.
Dixon and VitrA collaborated to design Liquid, a range of fittings and furniture that encompasses all elements of the bathroom.
The pieces, which include furniture alongside sanitaryware, taps, tiles, shower systems and accessories, are designed to work together or as stand-alone pieces.
The collection is characterised by a minimal approach to design, with chunky forms and soft lines. According to Dixon, these forms arose from a desire to create a stripped-back collection designed for intuitive use.
“What I’m trying to get to is almost an expressive minimalism, where what you’re trying to do is have a very visible functionality and reduce visual noise,” Dixon told Dezeen in the exclusive video interview.
“If they’ve got personality and they feel almost like a comic book representation of the artefact, I think that’s a good thing,” he continued. “There’s something fun about a soft, fat edge.”
