The Cartesio system by antoniolupi is a spa-like micro-architecture for the bathroom

During Milan Design Week 2024, the renowned Tuscan bathroom design brand will exhibit Cartesio, a modular system that turns intimate spaces into luxurious sanctuaries.

For over 70 years, antoniolupi has been guided by the mantra of “Elegance redefined in luxurious baths.” Offering a wide array of meticulously crafted bathroom accessories, including washbasins, baths, and shower trays, the brand has continuously pushed the boundaries of design innovation, elevating the bathroom from a mere functional space to a sanctuary of style and sophistication.

antoniolupi’s Legacy

At the heart of the brand’s design philosophy lies a commitment to marrying form with function, and Cartesio, which the company will present during Milan Design Week 2024 epitomises this. The modular system is described as a micro-architecture for the bathroom, perfect for accommodating countertop washbasins by lifting them off the floor and for customising the shower area with seating and countertops.

The Cartesio System

Made up of balanced proportions, solids and voids, close-up and perspective wings, the Cartesio System is ideal for furnishing intimate spaces with elegance and perfection. What sets it apart is its seamless integration of essential and absolute forms, which transcend the confines of the shower space to redefine the entire bathroom environment. 

By elevating countertop sinks from the ground, the system not only enhances the visual impact of these focal points but also introduces a sense of architectural drama to the room. This marriage of form and function is further underscored by the system’s ability to accommodate facial care accessories and personal items, ensuring that every aspect of the bathroom is both beautiful and practical. 

A space to sit and relax or for practical storage, each element of the system is meticulously crafted to enhance the user experience. In the shower area, the Cartesio system’s monolithic forms serve as functional elements that amplify comfort and relaxation. Whether it’s a bench crafted from Bianco Carrara marble or a shelf in Rosso Levanto stone, each component is a testament to antoniolupi’s commitment to combining luxury with utility.

The Cartesio system is designed to transform the shower space into a sanctuary of serenity and indulgence. Meanwhile, customization options include a selection of premium marbles and stones, such as White Carrara, Nero Marquinia, and Pietra Luna, allowing for endless design possibilities and ensuring that every bathroom reflects the unique style and personality of its owner.

From compact en-suites to spacious master baths, the Cartesio system can be tailored to suit any spatial configuration, allowing users to create bespoke designs that reflect their unique lifestyle and aesthetic preferences.
