Archetypical characters

For Alape, sieger design has created the Scopio series, with basins that open up to the user like stylised chalices

A reinterpretation of familiar silhouettes – for Alape, sieger design has developed a family of high-quality basins whose conical forms evoke the archetype of the washbasin, the classic enamel bowl. The minimalist designs of the washstands being presented for the first time at ISH 2017, as well as the striking dish basin, radiate a feeling of clarity and lightness. The Scopio models fit harmoniously into the desired milieu or – for instance as floor-standing solitaire units – set stylistic accents in the room.

Expectations for interior furnishings and our aesthetic perceptions are undergoing a global transformation. Internationally, classic and minimalist styles are fusing to create an eclectic interior, combining strict geometric forms with more pleasing softness. Scopio is a defining element in this design tendency. 

The conical basin form opens itself to the user like a stylised chalice. Its delicate frame and the softly rounded contour towards the centre of the basin underscore the material lightness of the glazed steel series. In accord with the product matrix that was developed, Scopio encompasses different variants, all following the minimalistic design principle: a worktop basin, floor-standing or wall-hanging washstands, with or without a tap wall bracket. The clear and elegant design makes the basin, as a solitary pillar, the aesthetic centrepiece of the room.

Supplementing the Scopio series, sieger design has also created a family of high-quality mirrors that set design accents. A clear language of form and a harmonious aura of light underscore the objectual character of the four rectangular and three round models. For this purpose, indirect LED lighting that provides illumination from the side is installed behind the surface of the mirror. The different variants provide even lighting, are individually dimmable and can be combined freely with other washstands and furniture from Alape according to application.
