description: The Affetto collection is a result of the desire to scale down elements of bathroom furniture and fittings, which are often excessive, and thus highlight their natural shape. The collection has a wide range of articles, each with its own strong personality but all indissolubly bound to the Globo brand identity. The Affetto fixtures are characterized by a single continuous surface, from top to bottom, while the washbasins (available with an integrated top, wall mounted, recessed, and hand-basins), made to appear lighter through the minimum thickness of the borders, seem to invite a level of physical contact. The range of washbasins is completed by a free-standing single unit, of asymmetric form and with a reduced size base which makes it easier to use. The collection even includes a free-standing bath tub, notable for its linear appearance and clean lines. The innovative feature of these fixtures and fittings can be found in the concept of bathroom furniture that may be used time and again, taken from house to house when moving, and therefore able to adapt to a variety of different spaces. The accessories send a massage of extreme functionality, in addition to having grace and charm, with a correct combination of values that give added dignity to even the simpliest object.
