Lucchese talks about Synergy
The designer Francesco Lucchese talks about Synergy project: bathroom tap collections with shapes that take their inspiration from nature.
Synergy, the concept
The history of the tap collections marked by the organic design, taking inspiration from nature
The matter takes shape
«We wanted to pay homage to nature: wind, water and sun have always been working together, shaping matter moment by moment, for hundreds, thousands, sometimes millions of years, sculpting it differently each time.»
Francesco Lucchese, Synergy tap collections designer
Sources of inspiration
The wind’s breath caresses the matter, shaping the contours, creating unique and singular landscapes.
The water, by means of its waves, leaves the mark of its passage on the sand and stone, moment after moment.
The sun rays warm the earth up, they veil it by a golden light, give it warmth and model the surface by erosion.
«Inspirations from nature led to the interpretation of everyday items such as taps, which allow us to manage a precious commodity like water. Leaving square, cylindrical and rectangular geometric forms behind, we went in search of a shapely and manifold object, with continuously varying contours, depending on the observation point.»
«The next step was to give the item different aesthetic characteristics in order to encompass a variety of tastes: original, trendy, classic.
To do this, we created three different handles.»
The result was:
Matter and colour
«Not only have we dedicated ourselves to the development of the contours, but also to the choice of materials and colours. We chose to combine the plated or lacquered brass that characterizes the body, with DuPont™ Corian® for the tap handles and shower heads, a material that is already well known in the bathroom fittings industry, and which now, thanks to the Synergy project, also makes its debut in the world of taps.»
DuPont™ Corian® solid surface is extremely durable and particularly suitable for creative manufacturing processes and innovative design. A highly versatile and long-lasting material that is practical and warm to the touch; characteristics that blend perfectly with the concept of these collections.
Types of bathroom
The last stage of our concept was to imagine these taps and shower heads in three different types of bathrooms, evoking the three styles we have defined as minimal, warm and luxury.
Ideas for Contract
For the Contract sector, the Synergy collections offer the possibility of customizing both the colour of the body and the handles of the items.
