Striking yet refined, bold and yet comforting, the Cameo collection exemplifies modern and elegant bathrooms. Designed by Prospero Rasulo for Valdama, the basins are distinguished by the perimeter of their tops – a visual element that will frame associated items such as tapware and toiletries.
The name Cameo relates to the ancient art of delicacy extracting shape from material, characterised by clear contours and reliefs. The sense of a dramatic statement combined with revealed beauty is clearly present in the form of the basins that make up this extensive collection.
The integrated hidden overflow system available through selected Cameo and Cut basins operates as follows :
Push Down To Open
When the top of the plug and waste is pushed down in order to fill the bowl with some water, a small opening in the ceramic adjacent to the waste hole is discernible.
Water Fills The Bowl
This opening leads to a self-draining “up and down” channel in the ceramic that is concealed behind the bowl. As water accumulates in the bowl it also fills “up” the concealed channel to the same level.
When the bowl reaches full capacity and if the tap is left running, instead of water overflowing from the bowl and onto the bathroom floor it will flow across to the “down” part of the concealed channel.
Water Draining Outlet
Then it will flow out the opening at the other end of the channel and discharge through the waste outlet of the basin.
With basins that have hidden overflows the risk of flooding is reduced while the styling is not impeded by a visible overflow hole that may be unsightly.
Designed to be wall or bench mounted, the contours of Cameo will help create contemporary as well as classic design aesthetics; complementing the likes of restored villas and ultra-modern apartments. Their smooth and fine details including the coordinating plug and waste with ceramic top, will bring to those rooms where they are featured both style and refinement.
Available in Australia through PARISI Design + and in 6 sizes, white or black with a matt or gloss finish and one colour, Nuvola with a matt finish. Cameo is a washbasin collection for lovers of design who seek a bathroom that will be inspiring and relaxing.
