THE ELEGANT LESSON OF MINIMALISM
Gessi has the merit to have reinterpreted in a completely peculiar way the traditional image of the tap. In so doing, Gessi has anticipated and stimulated a revolution in the vision of the bathroom from a utility room to an environment to live and enjoy, to furnish and to personalize. The unprecedented minimalistic rectangular shape Gessi introduced in tap ware in 2002, transformed a daily use object into a small furnishing sculpture. Rettangolo is a design icon, it has the evocative and Gessi, with Rettangolo, created this pleasant dilemma in interior designers.
“THE ICON” GENERATES A NEW WORK OF ART.
THE RETTANGOLO K CONCEPT WAS BORN.
Crushing the shape of Rettangolo with an oblique cut, a diagonal line breaking it and changing its silhouette, reshaping its iconic outline and evoking a “K”. The result is astonishing: the object preserves its original harmony, but it is new, different and beautiful. A disruption generates an even more powerful form of beauty: what breaks, becomes more precious, as it is unique. This is very true for Rettangolo K.
