Toilette Contemporary Exhibition by Amanda Zotesso Damha, São Paulo – Brazil

December 18th, 2015 by retail design blog

Within the Brazilianness theme proposed by Casa Cor São Paulo 2015, I sought references in two significant moments of our history: the era of gold during the 18th century and the cycle of coffee, between the 1800´s and 1930´s.


From these records of the past, a space in tune with the present has been created, re-reading history reveals to choose all the materials:
An assimetric metal coating, the faucets, the bathroom accessories and pending lamps in matte gold color make the rereading of the gold time. The coffee time contributed to the palette of colors ranging from brown to dark red. The wood coating choice for the wall brings warmth and coziness to the space.


The Toilette Contemporary goes beyond its basic functions. It is a living space, a space that it is not just a toilet but also a place to have a conversation and relax. Every detail has been thought including the floating flowers pots inside and outside the cabins. The lighting project was designed to enhance not only the environment but also to value all coatings from the modern furniture to the pieces of art. Everything was carefully chosen to create an environment where past and present could communicate with excellence.
