Kora, Marble’s lightness
Kora is an elegant ellipsoidal marble bathtub, born as a complement to the Gong sink. Suspended from the floor, Kora gives uniformity and elegance to the bathroom ambience.
After the success of Gong washbasin Kreoo presents Kora, an elegant ellipsoidal marble bathtub, that gives consistency and elegance to the bathroom environment, evoking the ancient Tibetan bells.
Born as a complement to Gong sinks, Kora takes its name also from a traditional musical instrument of West Africa, characterized by an elliptical shape.
The reference to the music, and specifically to the sound of water, with its quiet and silent impetuosity, is the soundtrack of a new way of experiencing the bathroom, where Kora is its main protagonist.
As in Gong, Kora is cut from one single solid block, carved with a meticulous and fine technique, achieved by digging the stone, firstly with specialized technology and then handcrafted for details and finishes.
The tub rests on an iron tripod that supports its volume, giving stability and elegance.
Suspended from the floor, despite the strength of the material, the water finds in Kora a new lightness. Marble is free from its weight and floats in the air.
At Salone del Mobile Kora is presented in the version Bianco Estremoz but available in other finishes such as Bianco Carrara and Grey St.Marie.
Extraordinary creativity and experimentation in the field of marble processing and magnification of Made in Italy. Kreoo realizes furniture items with high design level for bathroom, living and garden, both for contract and home.The name Kreoo has a precise reference to the Greek verb kraino meaning “to create, to realize”: from Ancient Greece, Kreoo draws the instinct for perfection and harmony and translate it into a contemporary, aesthetic and innovative vocabulary.
