The washbasin by Marcante-Testa is a mini-architecture inspired by Roy Lichtenstein

Frieze, the new washbasins collection produced by Ex.t and presented at Maison&Objet 2020 looks at the Entablatures series by the American Pop artist, making reference to the stratifications of their lines and decorations.

The new collection of washbasins and bathroom accessories produced by the Italian brand Ex.t and designed by Marcante-Testa drives its inspiration from the architectural ornaments of classicism. The source of inspiration, however, remains therefore very specific and can be identified in the series of paintings and prints Entablatures that the American artist Roy Lichtenstein developed in the early 70s, inspired by some neoclassical facades of Wall Street.

Named – not by chance – Frieze, the collection is in line with the graphic taste and expressive use of textures and colours that distinguishes the interiors of the Turin-based duo of architects. Its identity is defined by the neat line of the sink, characterized by a geometric profile and the front decorations with grooves or grid patterns. Mounted on a wall strip and completed with upper and lower coverings, the washbasin can be integrated with a series of accessories including mirrors, storage units, towel hooks and shelves.

Declined in three models – Frieze One High, Frieze One Low and Frieze Two Lined washbasins – the collection allows the configuration of versatile solutions, playing with its modular compositions of ever-changing shapes and hints that adapt to the space and create a new code of pop elegance for the bathroom. Frieze will be launched with a sneak preview at the Paris fair Maison & Objet.
