“Great design has emotional power and an innate ability to instil beauty into everyday objects,” states bathroom brand Gessi when discussing the new Venti20 range, which captures the essence of the era and allows us to rediscover the spirit of the ‘Roaring 20s…
Bathroom brand Gessi has collaborated with Spanish designer Lazaro Rosa-Violin to create the Venti20 collection, breathing new life into signature elements with its carefully edited retro notes, while at the same time, doing away with any nostalgic replicas.
Gessi believes that now, perhaps more than ever before, we need to draw upon our ability to imagine extraordinary things, to dream fantastical dreams, and to renew our pursuit of beauty. That we long for those things that bring meaning to life, and for the spaces around us to be filled with elements that bring happiness not only to our eyes, but also to our heart and spirit. The idea of an exciting present and prosperous future, here in the ‘20s of the 2000s, just like those of the 1900s, creates an emotional impulse full of energy, and a confident immersion into the spirit of an age devoted to enthusiasm, vitality, and a true celebration of life.
In the Venti20 Collection, elegantly detailed profiles pair with simple, pure lines to work together as a functional, contemporary work of art. The meticulous workmanship of the handles and the details at the base of the items, together with striking fluted bodies, recall a classic style that has been reimagined for a new era. This collection characteristically combines the Gessi hallmarks of craftsmanship, art and technology, in a single object.
Designer Rosa-Violan worked with Gessi to ensure that the detailing, the iconic style and the playful essence of the era was integral to the design. Yet importantly the collection is all about an enthusiasm for life and the future-looking optimism of that era. It is about taking that spirit, through design, into the most private spaces of contemporary living. In this visionary outlook lies the recipe for a new appreciation of style and the improvement to people’s lives today.
