This monolithic modular system brings classic Italian architecture to bathroom design

The newest range from antoniolupi premises to elevate any bathroom and elevate your daily ritual.


Iconic Italian design house antoniolupi are back with their newest bathroom release: Cartesio System. Designed by AL Studio, the collection is a modular take on bathroom design that turns even the smallest of wet spaces into sculptural vignettes.

The system is modular in concept, and is made up of volumes carved from solid pieces of natural stone. With both “seat” and “back” elements in the collection, Cartesio has flexibility at its heart, with pieces able to be combined or separated to create bespoke touches of microarchitecture in any bathroom space.

From evocative niches and statement shower seats, to countertop sink raises and beautiful shelving systems, Cartesio looks to be cut from the Dolomites themselves. Each piece seems almost quintessentially Italian: a piece of the earth that brings sophistication, finesse, and a touch of the unexpected.

In the shower, Cartesio can be installed to function in a number of different ways. The practical minded can bring indulgence to their space with Cartesio shapes providing storage solutions such as niches and shelves, while larger showers can feature a Cartesio shower seat for a truly relaxing shower experience.

In the basin area, the flexibility of the collection means Cartesio can also be used to accommodate countertop washbasins, either lifting them from the ground or creating a backdrop that plays off the volumes of the basin. In a space that provides the foundation for luxurious skincare routines and habitual self care practices, adding a sculptural monolith brings a touch of the sartorial to the sink space, elevating even the simplest daily rituals to something extraordinary.

Importantly, the curation possible in the products and their applications mean that the release offers a new way to elevate bathroom interiors. Designers are given the opportunity to extend an aesthetic vernacular throughout the entire room footprint, and create a visual statement with precious stones that create a dialogue with the sharp surfaces of the glass for a rich complexity in materiality and profile.

Available in a variety of size profiles and in a range of marbles and stones including Bianco Carrara, Nero Marquinia, Verde Alpi, Calacatta Viola, plus many more, the Cartesio Collection is the perfect fusion of classic design and contemporary aesthetics, and is set to transform bathrooms around the globe into microcosms of architectural magic.
