Can the quality of our surroundings lift the quality of our lives?

One of the mantras on the Foster & Partners website has the following:
the quality of our surroundings can lift the quality of our lives

At Soak we like to apply this ethos to every bathroom we design.  You may be wondering about the quantum leap from Foster & Partners to bathrooms.  Foster & Partners also design products, and we can offer the Foster range from Duravit.
Foster bathroom from Duravit

Foster basin by Duravit

Is it design or is it architecture?  Whatever your opinion, it is genuine Foster.  Sensational, like all his work: The Gherkin in London (aka 30 St Mary Axe) and Chek Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong, the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank and the new German Reichstag.  The architect and designer Norman Foster has excelled himself and created a bathroom suite that pushes the boundaries, which defines the bathroom anew.  
How has he done this?   Quite simply.  
Two adjacent circles define the geometry of the whole range. 
Plus the archetype of two cupped hands scooping fresh water.  
Bathroom Foster.

So it is no surprise to see this stunning building - the Zayed National Musem in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The Zayed National Museum will form part of the emerging Saadiyat Island Cultural District. 
Its design draws on the landscape and culture of the Emirates and the galleries are housed within five feather-like forms, which function as solar thermal towers and contribute to a highly progressive environmental strategy.

So let Soak bring some inspiration to your new bathroom so you can have the bathroom of your dreams.
