Swan Bath (Multifunctional Bath Complex) by Ece Cokca
2012 - 2013, Bronze A' Bathroom Furniture and Sanitary Ware Design Award Winner
I am inspired by the swans for their esthetic curling lines . The cylindrical column is inspired from the body and the curved plates from the neck and the wings of the swan.
Separate bathroom elements namely; toilette, sink, shower and towel hanging are gathered around a cylindrical column instead of placing these elements on different walls.The cylindrical column carries different bathroom elements on curling blocks and it also serves a cover for the water pipes and drainage pipes inside. This design has the advantage of being useful in bathrooms with different sizes. It may be interesting for people who are looking for unique designs.
Design Challenges
The hardest part was to deal with the technical details such as which materials to use, and where and how to place water/drainage pipes. This design can be attractive to manufacturers and clients who look for unique designs.
Production Technology
The cylindrical column extending from ceiling to floor has a diameter about 60 centimeter and is made up of stainless steel. I have placed a structural system inside the cylinder consisting of 6 box profiles with 3x3 cm sizes. The curved blocks can be made from different materials, such as lacquered laminated plywood or DuPont Corian supported by metal profiles underneath. The profiles inside the cylindric column and the profiles of the curved blocks are connected to form firm supports.
