The Swiss newspaper Neue Zurcher Zeitung (NZZ) is among the world’s best, and perhaps the least prone to hyperbole. Yet this Sunday’s edition raved about British designer Ross Lovegrove (TED2005) and his latest project, “Liquid Space,” a line of bathroom furniture and fixtures for Istanbul-based VitrA. Lovegrove fascinated us last February in Monterey, with his organic forms and high-tech materials; this new line fits right in. NZZ described Lovegrove’s commode as “The iPod of toilets: so elegant, so chic, so smooth that it could easily make the list of must-have lifestyle products. Could it be a lounge toilet?” (Tip and German translation from Bruno Giussani)
