Dutch designer Bo Reudler and company were recently invited to take part in a restoration project in a 19th century house near Amsterdam. The designers were challenged to bring a touch of contemporary design flair to the antique bathroom interior whilst retaining some of the character and features of the original.
Most modern bathrooms are shrines to function and sterility. This design sought to bring the space alive. Drawing heavily on natural forms, the copper pipes are left exposed and unfinished, to green with time and use—along with the copper sink and floral tile details. The ceiling's cornicing, playing with classical interior features, gives the impression of water dripping upwards as you kick back in the antique bathtub.
Check out the tap details and plenty more pics on the Bo Reudler site.
