Light and Water: Apollo is a collection of showerheads that brings these two elements together, connecting them in a single composition of pure forms. It is a hybrid object in which neither function prevails perceptively: it is a lamp, but at the same time a shower head. Apollo introduces a new type of showerhead that at first glance can leave you a little perplexed, because it is not easy to understand its dual nature capable of emanating light and water, but the typological ambiguity is part of its charm.
The showerheads are a composition of tubular lines that subvert the paradigm of existing showerheads, while the lamp, which can take various forms, is summarized in Apollo in a circular sphere. Apollo is therefore a source of light and a source of water that makes the shower experience particularly pleasant: allowing yourself to be flooded by a primordial luminous rain, which creates a relaxing atmosphere also thanks to the visual comfort that is generated, creating a holistic experience that satisfies multiple senses.
Apollo is the god of the sun in classical mythology and therefore of light and heat, but his birth took place in water and the two elements are perfectly integrated into the symbolism of which the collection is the bearer. The collection consists of a wall element and two ceiling elements. The most iconic piece, the wall element, is made of cast brass in a Y shape and is the result of careful reflection on the architectural aspect of the showerhead product system, in which the three water-light-fixing branches are conceived equally.
The technological aspect plays a fundamental role in the entire project, because it allowed the full implementation of the original idea, especially from the point of view of the miniaturization of the components.
The IP67 LED lighting turns on simultaneously with the water supply.
