Brick and Corian, smoked glass and moss, bog oak, marble and Brushed Dark Platinum, cognac-coloured leather and purple carpeted floors: here traces of wear meet new gloss, curved arches meet monoliths rich in edges, nature meets architecture. The bathroom as a progressive area of tension between tradition and modernity. Thus the fluid boundaries of Transitional Style are impressively in motion.
In interior design, the Transitional Style describes a mix of traditional and contemporary elements: a healthy balance of established and new that looks inviting, and in which you can quickly feel at home. Dornbracht invited the architect Rafael de Cárdenas to interpret the Transitional Style in his own way – to provide an innovative insight into the interior trend.
Rafael de Cárdenas' ideas and inspirations formed the basis for this bathroom architecture for VAIA in Brushed Dark Platinum. Situated in round alcoves, VAIA is orchestrated on a monolithic-looking washstand made from cubes of different materials. The brick structures form a dramatic background to the fitting’s Brushed Dark Platinum finish, a dark, silk matte colour with light brush strokes.
The “Ton sur Ton” collage describes an elegant, neutral world with a subtle colour palette and finely combined material textures. Marble, with its brownish tint and large grain, reflects classic elements, while concrete and Brushed Dark Platinum bridge the gap to modernity.
