Architect and designer Roberto Palomba visits Australia to talk about his eponymous bathroom collection.
January 29th, 2009
Italian Architects and designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba have been working together for over 14 years, founding the Milan-based Palomba Serafini Associati. The firm deals mainly with architecture, industrial design and exhibition design.
The Palomba’s have brought their vast experience to the floor for several notable clients, including Bisazza, Capellini Zanotta and many more. Since 2003 Roberto Palomba has also been a professor for the Industrial Design Department of Polytechnic of Milan.
The pair have been collaborating with bathroom manufacturer LAUFEN for a number of years to produce their range of award-winning (red dot award 2007) bathroom ware. The organic, asymmetric designs are inspired, not by clean modernist lines, but by the irregular shapes of the natural world.
The basins, bathtubs, toilets and bidets are definite style statements and aim to “represent the dynamic synthesis of rational, poetic and natural shapes”. There is something inherently relaxing about the shapes and curves in the Palomba collection.
LAUFEN Bathrooms and Australian distributors, Bathe, will bring Roberto Palomba to Australia and New Zealand in February, and will be hosting a seminar: ‘The Bathrooms of Tomorrow’ [details below].
