Contemporary bathroom design: Ryosuke Fukusada & Rui Pereira

Bug collection: The Bug collection aims to create a deeper connection between the bathroom area and the rest of the home by revisiting furniture typologies. We wanted to use a natural material that could co-habit with the moist atmosphere of the space. Wood was our first choice, but it requires a lot of maintenance. Since we have been working with cork in other projects, we found it to be the perfect solution for this one in particular due to its unique properties: impermeability to liquids, thermal and acoustic insulator, hypoallergenic and soft to touch. Our interest in creating a bridge between our cultural backgrounds gave birth to this collection. We drew inspiration from the relationship between the Japanese ‘geta’ flip flops and the Portuguese cork tradition to conciliate with the idea of ‘avoiding the wet floor’.
Tile Sashi: Nowadays is virtually possible to simulate the appearance and texture of any material in ceramic. Like Cotto’s Marmo granito tile, which gives you the feeling of a natural stone. Tile sashi (slice in Japanese) is a collection of bathroom furniture inspired by the act of slicing a raw material in order to build something new. By slicing the tiles in thin strips we are able to give a three-dimensional configuration to a flat material, making it become part of the surface of the furniture and, in this way, mimetizing it with the bathroom architecture. In order to give a softer appeal to the tiles, pastel colour is used in the junctions and other natural materials such as red clay and cork are mixed.

Ryosuke Fukusada was born in 1979 in Osaka, Japan. He studied product design at the Kanazawa College of Art from 1998 to 2002. He then worked for Sharp Corporation in Japan as a designer for consumer electronic products until 2007. After transferring to Italy, he graduated from the Domus Academy, Master in Interior and Living Design course. From 2008 to 2012, he worked for the Studio Urquiola in Milan. He started his own design studio in October 2012 in Kyoto, Japan.
Rui Pereira is a Portuguese industrial designer, currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark. Rui believes that the designer´s role is to educate the taste and create a collective environmental awareness in society through the media that surround us.
