— following text from roca —

we thought that it is time to make a tribute to this precious and fantastic element, let’s make a tribute to the beauty of water. waterdrop invites us to enjoy and explore water without even using a drop, thereby representing roca’s fundamental belief that innovation and sustainability can go hand in hand.

the central piece is a representation of the beautiful experience of a drop falling into water, creating an enigmatic movement and ripples. the installation uses innovative and sophisticated technology in an unexpected and inventive way to capture this captivating natural phenomenon.

a blue moving line surrounds and defines the space, communicating the importance of this element as well as acting as an invitation and a welcome. listening and understanding peoples needs and desires is important to us at roca so we allow an area where comments about water can be left appearing at the same time outside of the wall. the walls of the stand become an open speaker about this valuable element, water.
