‘ingrid’ is a modular bathroom system that includes a sensitive full range of practical elements. designed by jean-françois d’or, with the collaboration of frédérique ficheroulle and the vika team, the collection allows each user to compose their own wellness place of high-quality materials, colors, and finishings.

at the start of the project, the collective thoroughly devised a way to increase the comfort of people during their bathroom experience. ‘a bathroom thats does not look like a bathroom. it is much more than a room to wash up. it’s a place to start off your day and to end it,’ said the designers.

using the normative grid as the basis, coats of blue and white highlight details of each furnishing. more specifically, practical solutions are embedded into each of the constructions. multiple surfaces within the shelves and sinks also operate as towel holders and handles. mirrors and sink are accompanied by hidden electrical outlets for hair dryers and charging stations. the overall ambience is controlled by spherical lights that blend into the decor with the ability to dim for intimacy and brighten for everyday use.
