Designers Matthew Hilton, Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway and Oliver Heath have been approached by bathroom design company Kohler to create a series of bathroom interiors, which are unveiled this week. The Hemingways’ Fun Family Room features timber panels from sustainable forests and ‘shapes from everyday life’ as a recurring theme. Hilton has designed an indoor pavilion with a partially sunken bath with different water settings, coconut fibres and a screening structure from deep red steel. Heath fuses new technology such as a news monitor with the more natural elements of a giant overflowing bath, designed to ‘soothe the senses’, Heath says.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
