The modern spa is simply a version of an ancient custom: using water to rejuvenate, relax and reinvigorate.
Our Shanghai design team led the design exploration of the Beitou collection, seeking to place natural experience first—a reflection of Asian values of nature, peace and tranquility. If a product could capture the essence of water in its natural environment, it could embody luxury.
Concepts that highlighted the simple beauty of water created a strong emotional connection—its movement, reflections, the feel upon fingers and its gentle sound when allowed to run free. The team drew inspiration from rivers, their meandering and passage around and over stone. Water rises, spring-like, and flows in a channel seemingly worn by water. There is intentionally nothing more. It is bound by the most basic geometry. Beitou’s cantilevered spout supported on a honed cubic pillar is designed to recede, creating a simple form that complements many settings.
