COTTO Another Perspective 2013

More than often, the functions inside a bathroom are designed to separate the “wet space” (the sink area) from the “dry space” (the vanity area where you groom yourself and change clothes). However, if we delve deeper into people’s daily routines, they often overlap the functions of these two spaces. For example, women who have to apply make up in the morning have to switch back and forth from their vanity area to the sink area to wash their make-up brushes on an everyday basis. Lavanity (Lavatory + Vanity) showcases new possibilities to unite these two spaces together, to minimise space redundancy, and blur the boundaries between the bathroom and the vanity area, offering a more functional space that better suits real-life usage.
