That which the English describe as ‘stuff’, the Italian’s refer to so much more nicely as ‘Cose’. All sorts of different things. That’s precisely what designer Bertrand Joly wanted to achieve with his collection: a variety of accessories that can be used in many different ways.
While the first impression of Cose may be that of bathroom accessories, the bowls, jars and soap dispenser can also be perfectly translated into other rooms and functions.
"I see Cose just as well in the kitchen, where the jars can be used for the aperitif, or as storage containers. The soap dispenser is also of added value in the kitchen. What makes Cose a collection is that it is not limited to the bathroom at all,” explains Lejoly. The rounded lines fit perfectly into the simple and refined design language of the Belgian designer. “The accessories are present, but at the same time they are subtly adapted to any interior style, from modern to classic."
What’s more, the craftsmanship involved in the manufacture of these porcelain objects ensures that Cose does not look too sterile. The tiny imperfections make each object unique. The matt shades in off- white and coal-black also emphasise the mood, while the inside has been glazed to ensure ease of use.
