"The bathroom has never been more important in people's lives," says Clodagh of her latest design. Country Spa incorporates principles of Feng Shui and wabi-sabi, the Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in the passage of time, to exist as an intimate space that transports users from a world of work and worry into a simple, yet luxurious environment that captivates the senses.
To access the space, the guest must pass through a softly lit portal, designed to increase one's thoughtfulness and prepare the body for the cleansing ritual. The sound of gently bubbling water nearby soothes the mind and activates the space, further acting to immerse the user in an environment of relaxation. Earth tones and sensual textures seek to envelop the user in surroundings of total organic placidity.
Utilizing beautifully lit lines and axes, Country Spa is separated into five partitions and features products from Kallista® and Clodagh's collections of tile for Ann Sacks®. A sensitive appreciation for the juxtaposition of wood and steel creates a setting of Zen luxury, complemented by selections from the KOHLER® Purist® and Escale® suites. The interactions between human beings are celebrated in Country Spa. Space exists for two to enjoy the environment of experiential relaxation together, yet provides opportunities for quiet contemplation. A custom spa bed allows for invigorating, restorative massages, and a spacious shower featuring DTV™ II technology enables users to savor a lengthy steam together. A generously sized bath area, bathed itself in gentle sunlight, includes an expansive freestanding bath and a divan sumptuously furnished.
