Hand Made exhibition during last Milan furniture fair, José Lévy
has designed a bathroom collection called Jungle Wash
for the Italian marble specialist company Up Group
The collection includes a shelving, a sink, a tap, a mirror, a foldaway stool and even a toothbrush: a wild and offbeat shower; an oasis of freshness in the Amazon jungle.
The designer has devised a suite from rough blocks of emerald green Guatemalan marble; only the functional parts are highly polished. A mineral stack smoothed by water from a waterfall and overrun by dense vegetation alluding to an improvised bath “a bit like washing in nature after tropical rainfall, when the water is held in stone blocks…
” summed up the French designer blending luxury and luxuriance with this paradoxical line where man’s intervention is reduced to its simplest, but also to its most direct expression. A gem of a camp: literally and figuratively.
