Hitching Post

Continuing the unintentional theme of this week's posts—wood—here's an item that was just shown at Cersaie, the sensory-overloading Italian trade fair of ceramic tile and bathwares. This radical interpretation of a vanity is part of the Dressage collection. I think I see a playful visual pun at work, here; the precision movements of the equine ballet are echoed by the controlled placement of the sink and storage units, aligned atop a wooden frame whose four legs are arrayed in a trot. Designed by Studio Lombardo Nespoli & Novara, it's made of solid canaletto walnut. graff-faucets.com
