How does one incorporate a Japanese philosophy of impermanence and incompleteness in a bathroom? Shivani Ajmera of Quirk Studio shows us how, with their render of a gorgeous semi-open space…
Keeping in mind the narrative of minimalistic, slim and modern design that incorporates Kohler’s new ModernLife Edge line, we decided to use Wabi Sabi as our inspiration for this bathroom. The Wabi Sabi philosophy celebrates the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. ‘Wabi’ stands for understated elegance in Japanese, while ‘Sabi’ represents enjoying the imperfections. We have used IPS, a concrete countertop, black-and-white patterned tiles, wood, black metal with a whole lot of greens and natural sunlight to tie the space together and create a mood that de-stresses and helps one reconnect with nature.
