Cara is made of thin stainless steel plates in matt black or white and thus moves away from the familiar materials used for washbasins. A hybrid coating makes the surfaces hardwearing, which thus lend themselves for use in wet rooms. An open shelf provides storage for towels and accessories. Cara is made with a Japanese sheet metal and welding technique. This dispenses with high-temperature firing, unlike with ceramic washbasins, and contributes to a CO2 emissions reduction effect.
Statement by the Jury
Cara is reduced to the essentials and captivates with an extraordinary materiality that breaks with conventions to set its own accents in the bathroom.
