Impronta 125 by Catalano wins Good Design Award 2014

The Impronta 125 washbasin, designed by Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas for Catalano, won the bathroom and accessories category in the Good Design Award 2014 run by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts.

First unveiled at Cersaie 2011 as part of the "Catalano for Architecture" project and already a winner of the Designer Kitchen and Bathroom Award, Impronta 125 features the soft styling with which Fuksas has interpreted the innovative and technological spirit of Catalano, by evoking the idea of sandy surfaces shaped by ocean waves, across which the water flows in sinuous patterns.

The organic matrix, which is a recurring theme in Fuksas's architecture, is skilfully contrasted with more rational structures and geometries and constitutes the common thread running through the entire collection, which also comprises shower trays, wall-hung, flush-mount and free-standing washbasins, which can be combined with towel rails, back-lit mirrors, dedicated vanity units and drawer units in polished steel and gloss white and black. The entire collection is now available on the market after a long process of fine-tuning necessitated by the complexity of the project.
