Agape News - Immersion bathtub wins EDIDA 2018


Immersion wins EDIDA 2018

We are proud to announce that, after the success of EDIDA China, last Thursday night the Immersion bathtub designed by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office won the prestigious EDIDA 2018, the ELLE Deco International Design Awards, in the Bathroom category.

 

Voted by the 25 editors-in-chief of ELLE DECORATION around the world, the EDIDA recognizes global excellence in the interior design world in 13 categories.

The award, handed to Lyndon Neri, Rossana Hu and Emanuele Benedini during an unforgettable night at the Palazzo della Triennale, is yet another important milestone in Agape’s prolific collaboration with Neri&Hu.

 

When it comes to wellbeing, more and more often the western world looks to eastern cultures for inspiration. That oriental mood provided the inspiration for the first bathroom project from this Chinese design practice. The designers approached the theme of bathing by considering the needs of younger generations who live in small apartments. Immersion gets around the space issue by following in the footsteps of traditional oriental bathing vessels: its volume is created through depth rather than width. Minimal and elegantly proportioned, this tub is designed to allow a full-body bathing experience.

Not only. During the Milan Design Week some new elements of the Immersion family have been introduced: a multi-function bench and a washbasin, displayed in the over countertop or freestanding version. The basin, like the tub, is inspired by the traditional oriental wooden tubs used in Japan and China and, with its elegant and subtle edge, makes use of the latest innovations in the field of Cristalplant® processing.
