iSpa. Biodesign

The iSpa project fosters a more human-centric approach to designing objects and develops a concept of “visual simplicity” with a concept of “Biodesign”, which is morphologically simple and organic, as inspired by biological forms. The stylistic feature of the collection is a rectangular shape made smooth by corners rounded as smoothed by the water itself. This is a friendly and reassuring form easily felt as one’s own, pleasing to the eye and to the touch. Gessi attains the result of a design with an edge yet not radical: the glamorous minimalism of Gessi is softened and acquires a new charm. With iSpa Gessi realizes for the first time a Collection designed from the very project for the complete furnishing of a bathroom; in fact it spans from the faucets proposed in numerous high-tech models, to accessories, wellness systems, ceramic-ware, mirrors, up to the first bath tub designed and manufactured by Gessi

With its substantially formal perfection, the iSpa mixer calls to mind the idea of an architectural work; the well-engineered interplay of proportions between a lean base and a wide surface on the tap mouth makes the metal plate look lighter and somewhat suspended, with water oozing out of thin air.

Elegant but not blasé, iSpa’s language is rather empathic and communicative; simple shapes inspire confidence with the collection objects – their soft, sculptural and pleasantly rounded looks produce strong tactical attraction and communicate the relaxed sophistication and absolute serenity of a personal spa to each bathroom.
