Modulnova: nature enters the bathroom
Environments featuring essential shapes and incredible technical efficiency. Yet a return to authenticity stands out and it is represented by natural materials
Wish for natural, warm, simple, little man-made tactile sensations. Thus, surfaces made of wood, iron, marble, stone. This is what emerged from the latest Sicam (Pordenone), that has just ended: hi-tech vocation ideally combines with natural materials. Therefore more authenticity and a little less “wood effect”, “marble effect” and so on. A special predilection was highlighted for “Piasentina” stone, that from Italian Friuli region has conquered the big brands. It is said its name comes from Udine inhabitants’ habit, who used to define it in dialect as a stone that “la piase”, i.e. much appreciated. Nonetheless, people like it for its physical and mechanical features, but also for its colour. These are its main characteristics: low coefficient of water imbibition; high breaking loads even after several freeze-thaw cycles; good flexion and wear resistance, unalterable colour in the presence of weathering (thus a perfect solution also for the outdoor). This stone is usually grey, with white and crystalline veins and brownish sections, although the different processing it is subject to, enable it to get interesting colour variations. Modulnova brand widely uses Piasentina stone, in particular in its charming and functional bathrooms. For instance in the Surf model, raw iron, coal oak, flamed Piasentina stone coexist. What about this bathroom’s main features? Undoubtdely slenderness and lightweight, aesthetic rigour, essential shapes and technical efficiency. But also transparency, brightness and naturalness which are the most updated trends. Thanks to glass, Modulnova bathroom turns discreetly its look to tradition without giving up the innovation of the most advanced processing methods of classic materials. Surf represents a minimal and essential bathroom model, in which Modulnova has achieved a brand new level of development to create increasingly exclusive environments.
