Unusual and iconic – Rogerseller has unveiled the new Caldera and Eccentric collections.
February 21st, 2017
Conceptualised by Rogerseller’s in-house design team, the two collections celebrate the 120-year history of the brand, always a home of innovation and unprecedented expertise.
Caldera is a collection of basins inspired by earth’s greatest enigmatic processes, and the irregular shapes that are the result of these. As the name suggests, the basins mimic the shape of volcanic craters, and boast expressed crisp peaks that plunge into an elegant depression below the surface.
Available in both asymmetric oval and symmetric rectangular shapes, the Caldera range is finished in white Ceramilux, as well as Bianco Carrara or Emperador Grey carved from solid marble slabs.
The Eccentric collection by Rogerseller pays homage to the quirky nature of some the greatest minds in history. “Albert Einstein’s bizarre habit of picking up used cigarettes, Nikola Tesla’s daily toe exercises and Yoshiro Nakamatsu’s oxygen depriving deep dives are acts that tell of the individualism, wonder and curiosity found in many great scientists, explorers and inventors, and their rebellion against convention,” explains Rogerseller Product Designer, Nick Johnston.
When engaged, the Eccentric round mixer embraces quirky genius by progressively revealing an unexpected back-plate featuring cold and hot indicators, thanks to its axis uniquely positioned off-centre. Once the handle is returned to its closed position, the unconventional back-plate is hidden and balance is restored. The range also offers wall mounted bath and basin outlets that boast similarly subtle curves.
“Caldera and Eccentric by Rogerseller mark a new era of in-house design innovation that testifies the commitment to superior design and quality we’ve held for the last 120 years. Our past has not only prepared us for this exciting new journey, but forms part of our inspiration to continue innovating day after day,” says Rogerseller Brand Manager Tanya Sharpe.
Eccentric by Rogerseller received the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 as well as a Good Design® Selection in the Good Design Award 2017.
