The home space is constantly evolving, including the interior of the bathroom – every year we want to see it more aesthetically pleasing and functional. Responding to the demand of the new time, designers and brands are surprising with form, finish, and technology. A prime example is the system ABACO from the Italian brand CEA.
Concise design The modular linear system ABACO was developed by designer Natalino Malasorti, founder and art director of CEA based on his 20 years of experience in plumbing design. The main trump card of the system is a combination of minimalist design and modern technologies. Minimalism in the bathroom is an actual trend, but it is quite difficult to achieve it here.
ABACO is a red thread through my life,” he says. Natalino Malasorti. “It started when I was still a boy, following my father to construction sites, I watched how the water supply was laid. The bathroom is the environment that I care about because it’s rich in technology and innovation. My professional life has always been filled with a search for simplicity and order. I began to reflect on the beauty of creating a modular container that would accommodate all the functions of the bathroom but would be simple and understandable. All this could be conveyed only by steel: an extremely hygienic, antibacterial material, a keeper of experience, knowledge, innovation, and a friend.
One-size-fits-all approach The central element of ABACO is a toilet unit that combines the functions of drain, flush, and bidet, a patented invention of Natalino Malasorti. The toilet module is conceived as absolutely universal – equally convenient for both men and women. Additional comfort is provided by an ergonomic heated seat and built-in lighting – it is located on the plinth and on the back of the monolithic composition, providing spectacular multi-level lighting.
