We all know someone who’s a little too excited by something. Maybe it’s that cousin who won’t rest until absolutely everyone has heard about the latest folk band he’s been listening to, or perhaps it’s a co-worker with very strong opinions about dietary intake who refuses to allow you to eat your gluten and bacon in peace.
For Canadian manufacturer Vanico Maronyx, their obsession is glacial. No, I don’t mean it moves slowly – literally, their Origine line is flat-out inspired by mammoth chunks of ice. Everything from the erosion to the smooth curves, cool surfaces, and rock-inspired accents is pulled from visions of marching ice leaving its mark on the landscape of your bathroom.
Admittedly, for most people who aren’t involved in plumbing, drains are about as boring as it comes – we might notice them, but would certainly never give much second thought to their appearance. Origine changes that. Their oversized drain covers on the Origine line of shower pans provide glacier-touched accents to your shower space with smooth black slate or pebble-inspired finish, rather than a ubiquitous and utilitarian steel plate covered with holes. When you’re obsessed about something, you put it everywhere you can – even under your feet in the shower.
Next time Karen from accounting tries to convince you that mushrooms are as delicious as steak, maybe try getting her onto the topic of glaciers instead. After all, if you’re going to be obsessed with something, it might as well be something that lends itself to gorgeous bathroom design.
