Slide was awarded the Grand Prize in the Cristalplant | Agape Design Contest 2014. The prototype was shown at a Fuorisalone event during Design Week in Milan and subsequently included in the catalog of Agape—a world leader in the "Made in Italy" bathroom segment.
Slide is a combination shelf and towel holder for modern bathrooms. The unique design allows towels to be displayed in the folded position and hung for drying after use. Although a simple object, Slide is meant to create a graphic composition on the wall. Aesthetically, the project is defined by a pure sensibility. The use of continuous lines and fluid surfaces allow the piece to appear minimal, yet warm and inviting to the touch.
Slide is made of Cristalplant Biobased, an eco-friendly, moldable material with a unique visual appearance and touch. Cristalplant® Biobased is the world's first eco-sustainable solid surface material. It is 100% recyclable and derived from 30% plant-based resins and 50% aluminum hydrate recovered from the extraction of aluminum. It is low-VOC and GreenGuard Certified. Cristalplant® Biobased is Made in Italy.
