A Living Legend in Italian
Architecture & Design
Piero Lissoni is a world-renowned Italian architect and designer, a leader in the minimalism school of design.
He is at the forefront of the global architecture industry and has been recognized for his achievements in architecture, interior-, product- and graphic designs.
His glittering portfolio includes outstanding work for respected European brands such as Benetton, Boffi, Cappellini, Fantini, Glas Italia, Kartell, Lema and Living Divina. Today, Lissoni has expanded his architectural reach across the globe, with the Oberoi Resort Hotel in the UAE, The Swire Hotel in Shanghai and the Samsung Group’s Shilla Stay Hotel in Seoul being particularly fine examples. The secret behind the singular beauty of his work across all fields lies in the unique simplicity of his designs. It is the result of refined and meticulous thinking and a relentless quest for perfection in both aesthetics and function. Consequently, his work is imprinted with his DNA, and is instantly identifiable as a Lissoni piece. Lissoni has received numerous prestigious awards from the global design community, including the 13th Venice Bienale Architecture 2012, and he has been inducted to the Hall of Fame of Design in New York in 2005- one of the industry’s highest honors.
The collection is a classic Lissoni masterwork that displays all the hallmarks of his design DNA. It marries oriental artistry to the West’s rigorous design standards to create products in the ‘Sophisticated Simplicity’ style: Emotional refinement and complexity in the interplay of lines, light and shadow pared down to evocative essentials. Forms are minimized until only outstanding simplicity remains.
This influence of Italian Elegance in the ‘Pætchwork/ Collection takes bathroom product design to the next level. Every element - from patterns, forms, colors, textures, even the curvature of every item - complements and enhances each another to perfection.
The tiles have been designed with both matte and gloss finishes achieving maximum interplay between light and shadow.
The wash basins are rectangular with rounded corners and enjoy a spacious sink area. The sink tops are defined by the prominent contours of the raised edges while the wooden container is snugly integrated into the surface area.
The wall-mounted ceramic shelves were designed in ideal proportion to the tiles so that when installed the pleasing symmetry of the lines are not interrupted.
To capture a sense of fluidity, the faucets are designed to transform from a rectangular base to a circular spout.
Outside an elegantly simple exterior, the handshower is designed to incorporate a powerful internal mechanism that can output 3 different types of water flow for a more pleasurable experience.
Elegant. Exquisite. Classic. From bidets to toilet seats and everything in between, every square inch of COTTO sanitary ware has been meticulously designed and engineered. And with Rimless design from COTTO that makes it easier to clean, no one will have to sacrifice maximum hygiene for beautiful design.
The ‘Pætchwork/ Collection.
The harmonious beauty of outstanding simplicity.
