ANIMA announces that its DUNE collection has won even the European Product Design Award 2018.
The European Product Design Award™ was created to recognize the efforts of talented international product designers who aim to improve our daily lives with their practical, well-thought-out creations. We reward the strategic thinking and imagination which goes into making a great product.
Obviously ANIMA is over-joyed with this further award, and it is a recognition of its maturity in terms of creativity and production excellence, guided by the renowned experience in bathroom fixture design of its art director, the designer Paolo D’Arrigo, and the high quality of materials and production processes of the producers and businesses who are the embodiment of the tradition and values of “made in Italy”.
The Dune collection is the concrete representation of a concept which takes contemporary design and re-invents it without having to forego the authenticity and coherence which is a part of its Italian nature. It is an enormously attractive product that stuns with its fluid form and its almost feline softness in shape is matched by its feel which incites you to reach out and caress its undulating curves and explore the passage from its natural solid teak, one of the traditionally-used materials, to Teknostone, a solid surface which has been developed through advanced innovation.
The wavy surface of the washbasin top naturally forms spaces for the bowl and soap dish, thanks to highly-advanced production process technology, and etches out solids and vacuums to create space that welcomes you and overwhelms with its pure sense of pleasure. The console is the jewel in the crown and a co-ordinated part of the Dune collection, comprising tops, consoles, open bathroom cupboards, radiators, mirrors and tapware.
