The timeless
washbasins range
Scarabeo Ceramiche
Bathroom design
Conceived to be ahead of time and yet timeless, Mizu, the washbasins range designed for Scarabeo Ceramiche, changed the face of the company for good. Boldness and innovation have been awarded by the design world through several prizes: from Design Plus to Iconic Awards and German Design Award and by the market – inevitably – with copious sales.

Japanese culture as inspiration

The central cut is the result of two symmetrical shells coming together to hide the draining system. It’s been designed to embrace and mimic the water flow, the name itself – borrowed from Japanese culture – means vital fluid, adapting to new conditions on its flowing.

Refine the way of thinking
and producing

Mizu was presented for the first time to the market in 2015 during ISH after a long and in-depth research into the alarming situation of the bathroom interior design and products sector. New materials had been introduced to change the game and to be back in business ceramic washbasins producers had to lift the bar and refine not only the design offer, but the whole way of thinking and producing.

Ceramic has
nothing  to envy to
the most high-tech

This is what our design asked Scarabeo Ceramiche to do and the company responded beautifully, showing that ceramic has nothing to envy to the most high-tech materials being able to be thin but resistant or bend to sharp corners as well as incredibly sinuous shapes.
It’s not a washbasin, but the sexiest piece of architecture one can imagine and – at the same time – a compelling abstract painting.
