DeKauri is a freestanding enclosed bathroom vanity crafted from 50,000-year-old Kauri wood exclusive to Riva 1920. The piece takes inspiration from the traditional Italian credenza and brings its beauty and functionality into the bathing space.
“When it comes to the kitchen there are ingenious, innovative design solutions to hide and store everything. But that’s not always the case in the bathroom. I realized bathroom storage has at its core remained the same. That sparked the concept for a freestanding piece of furniture to house and conceal both the sink and storage."
With a washbasin crafted from Dekton by Cosentino and Kauri wood used for the credenza, the use of materials pays homage to the resilience of Mother Nature: the technology behind Dekton captures the beauty of natural stone with unparalleled durability, and the Kauri wood – excavated from New Zealand where it has been buried under mud and water for thousands of years—adds a truly exotic feel to the piece. A faucet from Fantini Rubinetti and lighting from Juniper Design complete the look. As an alternative, DeKauri can also be constructed from inlays of Walnut, Wenge and Cedar.
