The rc40 walls are an important design element. Customised units are constructed from front and back walls. They serve as room dividers or are free-standing when connected to toilets, bathtubs and vanity units. Mirror cabinets and other cabinet elements can be integrated into the walls. None of the plumbing fittings remain visible.
THINKING IN SPACES
The furniture system rc40 combines design with interior architecture. What renowned experts say about rc40:
Ulli Finkeldey and Kai Uetrecht (right) from nexus product design in Bielefeld are considered bathroom product experts.
Ulli Finkeldey: "rc40 makes it possible to create island solutions, which is not only practical and innovative but also in keeping with a contemporary style. The system could potentially become a classic."
Kai Uetrecht: "rc40 is a calm, self-contained product. The plain, elegant design allows the furniture to be used in many different ways, for example for walk-in wardrobes or for connecting an en suite bathroom to the bedroom with wall-mounted cabinets."
Stuttgart-based architects Henning Ehrhardt and Giorgio Bottega (right) from Bottega + Ehrhardt Architekten love room concepts.
Henning Ehrhardt: "For me as an architect, rc40 is exciting because the system allows free-standing designs, away from the wall. Another added value is that all of the technology is hidden inside the furniture or unit."
Giorgio Bottega: "This furniture system allows me to design a bathroom in a way that I would usually only be able to do with drywalls. rc40 gives me the walls and the fittings all in one, which is cost-efficient."
