The prestigious studio Foster+Partners has joined forces again with the Porcelanosa Group after both were chosen to undertake the full restoration of a symbolic building in New York, which is currently acting as a large showroom space for the company from Castellón. For the latest edition of Cersaie, an annual fair held in the city of Bologna and focused on the use of ceramics in architecture, the London-based studio has created the Tono bathroom furnishings collection for Porcelanosa. This is a collection combining different materials but which share a common factor – the balance between practicality and aesthetics.
As such, Tono is showcasing works crafted from ceramics, wood, marble and Krion. The works made from wood (walnut, oak and maple) give Tono an enhanced sense of style, the use of Krion aims to provide wear resistance, and both marble and limestone show flashes of elegance. Porcelanosa and Foster+Partners have not overlooked the introduction of technological innovation at Tono, as demonstrated by the inclusion of a fine adjustment device for water flow in sinks.
