Balancing Act

It could be said that the Kult vanity certainly has a leg up on the competition when it comes to its own style. [Should it have been said is another issue altogether.] The piece is pretty much a one-liner. Asymmetry is a noble design goal, but tricky to achieve. Perhaps without the distraction of the rococo mirror [and the heinous faucet] the cabinet's redeeming qualities could be better appreciated. lacev-mobilacev.it


  1. I'm slow to respond to this. I've been trying to come up with a clever way of explaining how much I really like this heinous faucet without sounding contradictory, but everything I've come up with sounds exactly that. Also, I tried unsuccessfully to explain how the rococo mirror seems like the only thing possible to balance the asymmetry of styles that a postmodern sink and cabinet necessarily evoke. Without the distractions, the redeeming qualities of the faucet, sink and cabinet would hardly exist. They themselves seem like distractions. But I couldn't come up with a way of saying that. Finding the right words can be tricky. Balancing one's presentation can be difficult, sometimes impossible. So, I decided to say, nice post. I agree with you about the faucet. Where do they come up with this stuff?

  2. Bravo, Evan Jones! Well put and put again.
