We look at the intricate design details behind Meneghello & Paolelli’s new design for Arbi

Italian bathroom brand Arbi Arredobagno has won a Red Dot award for its Today washbasin collection designed by Meneghello Paolelli Associati. Today is a new washbasin collection that aims to combine concepts of strong aesthetic design, and practicality. Designers Sandro Meneghello and Marco Paolelli explained: “Today is our interpretation of how the values of a company like Arbi should be expressed. It is the expression of our everyday life, concepts which have to coexist with those of the typical values of a bathroom clarity and fluidity. This collection became the ideation of simplicity but richness at the same time, in terms of the aesthetic and functional values that we were able to add to the collection in order to make it become a part of our everyday life.”

The new collection is made from a mineral composite solid surface and is characterised by the contrast between the wideness of the bowl and the lightness of the edges, combined with an elegant and essential design.

“We tried to design the basin in a way to make it integrated into the console, like a fusion between these two parts,” added Meneghello and Paolelli. “This made the collection extremely fluid and elegant at the same time, with a slight curve that slowly transforms itself into the whole washbasin structure and leaves the space for the mixer.”
