Shower Accessory “FALDA”
Falda represents the idea of a shower as a furniture piece. So why not putting a bookshelf into a shower? It wants to be intentionally provocative, but can change and improve the perception of the whole bathroom.
These angled“bookshelves” are the main distinctive element of FALDA, with their sheer effect they’re able to create an interesting graphic, conveying at the same time lightness and uniqueness.
The system offers a wall shower with thermostatic or progressive water valves equipped with 4 way water diverter that orientates the stream from the rainshower to the vertical water fall, from the handheld shower head to the body jets.
The two seating options, free standing and attached to the wall, follow the rhomboid shape of the shower box and at the same time, if combined together, they can become a spacious container.
The “bookshelf” module, useful to contain many different products, can be placed at different heights becoming comfortable to use for adults and kids. It can be used connected to the main column or out of the shower box.
