We sit down for an exclusive chat with Caroma’s Luke Di Michiel to talk about how the role of the bathroom has evolved, uncover the design intent behind Caroma Vogue’s latest collection – and why the Urbane II basin mixer is the designer’s personal favourite.
Across Australia, the design industry has seen brilliant minds push the limits and look beyond the boundaries to create products and experiences for the spaces of tomorrow.
Design is a beautiful thing: it has the power to bring creative minds together to create game-changing designs that challenge how we perceive the world, reimagine our everyday spaces and foster the growth of humankind.
In its 75 years in the business of bathroom design, iconic Australian bathroomware brand Caroma has seen plenty of change. At least one thing however, has remained a constant.
The past century has seen monumental feats in the world of design. During this period, the complexity of our landscape has seen ground-breaking innovations that have redefined the way we see, use, and experience our everyday spaces.
The humble bathroom has transformed from outhouse status to become a valued extension of our living spaces – a safe haven of luxury and refined self-expression.
Amongst the evolution of changing lifestyles and approaches to design, Caroma is at the forefront of reimagining the modern-day bathroom into an artful residential retreat.
Beyond the seeming simplicity of beautiful bathroom design is an engineering pedigree and forward-thinking focus – that is, if Caroma has anything to do with it.
Last night Caroma officially launched the Elvire Collection designed by Luke Di Michiel to a room full of prominent architects, designers and end users. Habitus was proud to be there in support.
For Luke Di Michiel, Caroma’s lead industrial designer on the Elvire Collection, the challenge was to keep the designs as simple as possible, and not to overdesign the products.
