Ingenious Bathroom Designs
Gemelli Design a Sofia-based design studio have completed two separate bathroom projects (On Oasis in a Sandstorm and H20 Geometry). The ingenious bathroom designs have been completed for private homes in Bulgaria.
According to the designers, Bulgarian twins, Branimira Ivanova and Desislava Ivanova the contemporary bathroom designs have been designed with tranquility and relaxation in mind in a contemporary environment.
An Oasis in a Sandstorm
“We designed a bedroom and a bathroom separated from each other with a fireplace and a glass wall.
“The main objective of the spaces is to provide a complete relaxation of the senses – in the bedroom the colour of the imagination and spirituality – the purple; Yellow is used for the bathroom. In this way the bathroom is like an oasis in the desert.
“We chose two different types of sinks, a small round sink and wide long one, which can be used for different purposes. We decided to use console bidet and standing toilet. The bath is located next to the window with a nice view to the sea. The bathroom favours quiet conversations. While one is taking a bath, another person can enjoy a glass of wine on the sofa enjoying the fireplace.”
H2O in Geometry
“The bathroom is a very important room in the house and is probably the only one place where you’re alone where you can relax, contemplate and dream.
“We chose the name H2O in geometry, because water is a leading element in the idea of our bath project. It represents the natural connection between this room and man.
“According to our Japanese researcher, Masaru Emoto, water can memorise all effects of the surroundings, including our thoughts, changing its structure. Then, with these new properties, water can affect us. All known forms of life depend on water.
“The bathroom is divided in two areas at different levels with specific functionality. Despite of this separation we aimed to design the bathroom as an entire organism. The wash-basins, the toilet and bidet are located at the lower level while the shower, at the upper level. The two levels are connected by stairs (which can also be used for sitting). Each area is determined so as to give freedom of the body and the spirit.”
