Conran and Partners joined forces with British brassware manufacturer, VADO, to design a sculptural bathroom collection. Designed to last, the range responds to the contemporary need for durability and efficiency, without losing sight of playfulness.
THE POWER OF COLLABORATION
Arrondi sees the result of a close collaboration between Conran and Partners’ imaginative approach to design and VADO’s technical and manufacturing expertise. VADO’s reputation, commitment to innovation and ability to inspire the design community across the globe has made them the perfect partner for this collaboration.
BRIDGING THE GAP
Conran and Partners’ award-winning portfolio has achieved worldwide recognition – but that has not stopped us from exploring new avenues and challenges across the vastness of the design realm.
Our understanding of scale, form, materiality, and spatial configurations allowed us to bring that extended expertise into the Arrondi collection, energising the design, and elevating it with ingenious architectural twists. We see it as a natural progression – of completing the circle and bridging the gap between architecture and product design.
In a market which typically sees strict delineations, Arrondi’s playful geometry challenges pre-conceived notions and blurs the boundaries between the traditional and contemporary.
Comprising a cohesive range of basin mixers, bath fillers and showering products, with lever or cross handle options, the spectrum offers a sophisticated blend of smooth, fluid lines composing a remarkable sculptural structure. Available in a chrome finish, the range is a testament to both VADO’s expertise of bathroom brassware technologies and Conran and Partners’ unique approach to design.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
Our design team sought to create pieces that ensure maximum functionality for its users. Each element is strikingly memorable, yet consistent. From the elegant conical form to the consistent 50mm base throughout the range, the Arrondi collection embodies refined and elevated geometry with timeless details.
As a studio we obsess over our end user’s experience. Our desire to appeal to all the senses is pivotal in our design process – from the macro to the micro. Versatile and unintimidating, Arrondi aims to create an uplifting experience, elevate wellbeing, and cultivate joy.
DESIGNED TO LAST
We understand the importance of being intentional with our choices, from the design process to execution. Together with VADO, we envisioned a timeless design with a gentle tactile quality, high-quality materials, and longevity in mind – a collection that can continue to serve and elevate its users’ needs.
Recognised with a highly coveted Red Dot award for Product Design, the Arrondi collection is now available in the UK and internationally.
