The American architect Daniel Germani designed a special project for the bathroom furniture of very high artisan quality called DeKauri, styled according to a type of Italian credenza. It is a truly important piece of furniture hiding a washbasin inside, which can fit any environment even outside the bathroom. DeKauri combines two exceptional industrial techniques: the ultra-compact Dekton surface by Cosentino, world leader in floorings, and the very old Kauri fossil wood extracted in New Zealand and processed by Riva 1920 in Cantù, Italy.We are glad Daniel Germani chose the AF/21 tap designed by Naoto Fukasawa for his project. AF/21 is part of the Aboutwater product range, a brand co-owned by Boffi and Fantini. This piece of furniture, available on request, was first displayed at the booth of Cosentino Group at KBIS (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) in Orlando, Florida, in January 2018. It was given the prestigious silver award as part of the Best Show prize in the bathroom segment.
“As for the kitchen project – says Germani – the design solutions to hide objects are often innovative and brilliant. It is not always like that for the bathroom. I therefore thought of a single piece of furniture as interior design featuring a particular function for concealing the washbasin and the shelves. The result is an object, which could fit perfectly in any master suite, bathrooms or bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom in an open space where the two environments are joint together”.
DeKauri will also be displayed by Riva 1920 and Cosentino at the upcoming Salone del Mobile in Milan (17-22 April). Outside of the Salone Tradeshow, the company Cosentino will similarly present a preview of a new kitchen project partnered with Daniel Germani.
