ANKE SALOMON PRODUCT DESIGN
“Like a piece of fabric that, hanging freely, forms a soft hollow.”
"The distinguishing features of the free-standing Meisterstück INCAVA bath are its ultra narrow rim and the unique, conical contour of the enamelled trim. Both lend the bath an extraordinary lightness. The contrast between the softly shaped interior and the geometrical exterior creates a new kind of elegance thanks to the delicate tension between straight and gently curving lines.
The organic, flowing aesthetic in combination with long-lasting, solid Kaldewei steel enamel produces an exceptionally exciting arrangement of design and material.” Kaldewei
As a manufacturer of iconic bathroom solutions made of superior steel enamel Kaldewei is one of Germany’s most successful brands.
“While working with Kaldewei, I got to know a team there who, demonstrating a love of their product, a passion for their material, steel enamel, and a huge awareness of quality, are dedicated to creating bathroom products. Naturally, for me as a designer, that is a fantastic environment. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity of working with this team on designing high-quality objects that will delight people for many years to come.”
Make good design and the quality of customary items become experienceable – that is the purpose of the Red Dot Design Museum located at the Zeche Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex, World Cultural Heritage Site by the UNESCO, in Essen/Germany. Meisterstück Incava and other Kaldewei freestanding bathtubs and their designers are presented at a special exhibition.
“Good design features a balanced synthesis of four qualities: the quality of function, aesthetics, usage and responsibility.”
