Agape presents new collections and a retrospective exhibition of its 40 years designing bath furniture

From Agape’s latest products – presented during Milan Design Week – to the origins of the trademark, which has now a 40 years’ experience in bath furnishing behind it, Agape  presented a retrospective of the 40 years’ activity in the new concept store Agape12 in Milan. The Drop collection, designed by Benedini Associati, or the DR bathtub designed by Studio MK27, among the nolveties of the brand. From “Drop” designed by Benedini Associati - Agape’s latest product launched during Fuorisalone 2014 - to “Erion” - the first modular bathroom furniture designed by Giampaolo Benedini in 1974, symbol of the business continuity-, the exhibition is structured like a trip backwards by means of 42 iconic models represented by pictures, sketches and genuine products. Four items have been chosen to mark each decade: Erion and Pump by Giampaolo Benedini, Gabbiano by Giuseppe Pasquali and Pear by Patricia Urquiola. The whole ground floor was used as a setting for the retrospective. In the bathroom spaces placed at the entrance of the store,  the new DR bathtub, which is the first result of the  partnership between the Italian company and the Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, and the new Drop system found their location. Along the central aisle, a backlit gallery of 24 photos led to the last room, with other 20 images, set on a suggestive mirrored wall, together with some pieces of history displayed as proper museum objects. Aside, the sketches of trusted designers like Angelo Mangiarotti and Giuseppe Pasquali. Drop Collection by Benedini Associati "With Drop we took on the difficult task of designing a bathtub that can be used simultaneously in different positions by more than one person. Drop adds to the production of Agape bathtubs made of Cristalplant® biobased, a material ideally suited to responding to Drop’s requirements." Completing the design project is a washbasin designed to sit on a shelf and a free-standing pedestal version. DR Collection by Marcio Kogan & Mariana Ruzante (Studio MK27) The first project in collaboration with Marcio Kogan and Studio MK27. DR is a flexible tub for two. To quote the designers, “The intention is to create a friendly, sensual and charismatic object. The smooth, flowing lines of DR offer great versatility. Take your place, and welcome!” Made of bent wood outside and solid surface inside, with wall or floor mounted taps. Size 185 x 140 x 55 h.
