Ohtake from Roca brings curves and colour to the bathroom

The Ohtake basins, designed by the late architect Ruy Ohtake, are a cornerstone of Roca’s collection due to their eye-catching design. In honour of the famed designer, Roca has launched a new countertop design and added a matt black finish to the range…

Ruy Ohtake, one of Brazil’s most prolific architectural designers, is renowned for incorporating sweeping curves and round shapes into his timeless and elegant designs. The original award-winning basins do not disappoint and the new design is no exception. To create it, Roca has inverted the original shape to produce a sculptural design carved into a square surround for an innovative take on the countertop basin. All basin designs are available in six existing finishes: Gloss White, Matt White, Pearl, Beige, Coffee and Onyx, as well as the new Matt Black finish.

“All the Ohtake basins are stand-out designs, certain to create a focal point in any contemporary bathroom,” said Natalie Bird, Brand Marketing Manager, Roca. “I’m particularly excited about the Matt Black finish, which is so popular right now and can’t wait to see how people style these pieces in their own bathrooms.”

In both his architecture and design work, Ruy Ohtake often spoke of his desire to create daring shapes that could surprise people. It was this quality that made him such a good fit for working on the original project with Roca and it’s also the reason the new basin design is a genuine evolution of Ruy’s concepts it is a surprising shape and one that is destined to be a stunning centrepiece in its own right.

The updated Ohtake collection now comprises three countertop basins available in seven finishes: Pearl, Beige, Coffee, Onyx, Gloss White, Matt White and the new Matt Black.
