ryosuke fukusada styles temple-like bathroom collection for morning rituals

ryosuke fukusada, in collaboration with rui pereira, creates ‘small steps’ as a softer, more gradual and more enjoyable way of starting the day. the collection was exhibited as part of cotto 2017, where seven groups of designers from five countries were invited to work under the curation of naoto fukusawa and interpret the phrase ‘good morning’ into bathroom designs.

providing a serene atmosphere to both physically and mentally prepare for the working day ahead, ryosuke fukusada’s ‘small steps’ is shaped by italia collection’s bianchezza series. the material, styled as a tri-dimensional grid, creates a temple-like aura where users can perform their small but daily rituals. ‘small steps’ also features a selection of accessories, which, with their minimalist yet elegant forms, fit the holy-like atmosphere. these design re-contextualize many traditional japanese items, such as a towel holder tray.

showcased at cotto 2017 as part of the ‘cotto another perspective 5’, curated by naoto fukusawa, the collection also creates an illusion that builds upon a very modern issue. due to commutes and early starts, many of us are not able to see the first rays of light at sunrise. however, the setting includes an integrated mirror that perceives and reacts upon people’s presence. as the morning rituals begin, the object gradually and gently glows by a brighter and pulsing light that evokes complete well-being.
