Ceramica Flaminia -- Interior Design, 8/15/2005 12:00:00 AM
Geometric shapes and a living-room aesthetic inform the collections of Ceramica Flaminia, which has been producing sanitaryware since 1955. In 1997, under the art direction of Giulio Cappellini, the company designed Acquagrande, a member of the early generation of square washbasins. Making a splash at this year's Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan was the Work in Progress line, designed around the concept that each item can either stand alone or be a part of a sculptural ensemble united by rigorous geometric shapes. Witness Miniwash, a petite wall-mounted washbasin with an integrated back. With a 71/2-inch-high backsplash and offered in 15-inch-square, 19-by-14-inch, and 10-by-16-inch sizes, the fixture is available in Blue Indigo, Chestnut, Milky White, Anthracite, Edelweiss, white, black, and sand. The Panca Miami vanity has a 71-by-22-inch wood slab atop a stainless-steel post and is offered in light and dark oak and zebrano finishes. For the sensual IO, an ovoid form slices through a rectangular or square lacquered oak shelf. The tub is Pietraluce resin, and the sink is ceramic. The oak comes in white, black, marine blue, beige, sand, and red finishes. 54,630 S.S. Flaminia Km., 01033 Civita Castallana (VT) Italy; 39-0761-542030; ceramicaflaminia.it.
