Milldue’s Touch: modern vanities with organic appeal
I won’t be in Cersaie this year, but Milldue will. And it will be showing Touch, a bath collection by Michele Marcon that comprises freestanding and wall-mounted vanities in a Monolith design, as well as coordinating tubs, showers trays and mirrors.
Available in three widths—40, 63 and 99 cm—the vanities measure 87 cm tall and 39 cm deep. Each Monolith unit is equipped with two drawers and a door, has a matte lacquered interior and is offered in a variety of finishes, including 30 matte lacquered and four eco-friendly mortar colors. Made of water and natural materials, the latter is fire-retardant and recyclable and does not contain cement, lime, plaster, epoxy resins or harmful substances. It is hand-applied in multiple layers for a textured look and comes in cemento (off white), grafite (gray), argilla (putty) and terra (brown).
Personally, I’m kind of digging the wood veneers—hickory or natural or Black Spruce reclaimed silver fir—which lend a soft, organic quality to an otherwise streamlined design. The fir is salvaged from restoration work on historic buildings, which I’m sure are plentiful in Italy, and has been worked over for a softer feel. The Black Spruce version has a burnt look that seems to be gaining some popularity across the pond (Dogi, GD Cucine’s new bath collection, also offers it).
