Ludovica & Roberto Palomba. Bathrooms From Inspiration to Lifestyle
Ludovica and Roberto Palomba are architects and designers of furniture, lighting and kitchen fixtures for such brands as Design Within Reach, Crassevig and Schiffini, but they are best known for their luxurious bathtubs. The Palombas create generously sized tubs for companies such as Iris Ceramica, Kos, Zucchetti and Ceramica Flaminia. Their simple, clear forms--some are just giant stone bowls--and their unconventional sinks, whose soft, organic curves recall feminine forms or the sinuous banks of a lagoon, are in perfect accordance with the current trend toward luxury bathing. The duo have headed up their own company since 1994, designing lighting, mirrors and modular furniture to compliment their tubs and sinks and creating persuasive, modern settings that have already won a variety of design accolades, including the coveted Red Dot Award.
