SIMAN | Lavabo By URBI et ORBI
Vasque à poser rond en béton
SIMAN basin is made of cast concrete. Design by Gian Paolo Venier in 2019.
A postcard representing the ancient Toghrul tower, situated near Teheran (Iran), that the designer received from an old friend, was the starting point for the conception of this is family of tableware. The name of the collection comes from the term “siman”, which means concrete in Farsi language. Marked by the iconic pleating, which creates ever-changing games of shadows and depths, the pieces carry a strong sculptural identity. As a collection of little architectures. Siman populates interior landscapes with a highly graphic and timeless personality, casting a new light on concrete, traditionally considered a poor and rude building material.
SIMAN Collection is a family of 8 concrete tableware objects conceived by Italian designer Gian Paolo Venier for our 2018 series.
A passionate traveler, Gian Paolo Venier is in constant search of afar atmospheres to contaminate his design vocabulary. A postcard representing the ancient Toghrul tower, situated near Teheran (Iran) was the starting point for this collection. The name comes from the Farsi term “siman”, which means concrete. Marked by the iconic pleating – which creates an everchanging game of shadows and depths – the 8 pieces – cake stand, candle-holder short, candle-holder tall, catchall, dish small, dish big, vase and basin – carry a strong architectural character. For a panorama of little architectures that populate our interior landscapes with a highly graphic and timeless personality. Available in 2 shades that highlight the texture of the concrete – light grey and anthracite – the collection is hand produced by UrbiEtOrbi in Greece.
