Design and architecture studio Sergey Makhno Architects has created the first monobrand salon for the world-famous sanitaryware manufacturer Dornbracht in Ukraine. In this space, the design team embodied the concept of the five elements. To the four that are already well known – water, fire, air and earth – they have added the concept of time. At the centre of the composition is a glass cube containing an exhibition area; here customers can test the latest technological innovations for which Dornbracht is famous, for example the Sensory Sky shower with its effects such as fog or summer rain, a horizontal shower, foot bath treatments and more. In the interior of the showroom, industrial features include rust-clad walls and metal frames with factory-style stamping while surfaces are embossed, alive and warm, like the earth itself.
