AF Signature Collection

DUNE
By Caroline Beaupère

INSPIRATION
New York / French Designer Caroline Beaupère creates an alluring bathroom series that embodies one of nature's most interesting and beautiful phenomena. "The Dune Collection", writes Caroline Beaupère, "was inspired by the most serene place I have ever encountered: the Siwa Oasis in the Libyan Desert in Egypt. Surrounded by wind sculpted dunes and majestic mountains, the oasis is a magical haven, a place out of time where you forget about the outside world. Being able to escape the hectic pace of modern life is a luxury. The whole concept behind the collection was the create a tranquil environment for the ultimate relaxation."

"The egg shape tub wraps around you like a cocoon, creating a safe and inviting space. The soft curves of the smooth version exude purity and sensuality while the version with ripples takes a step further into bringing nature into the home.

"Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté, Luxe, calme et volupté.
There all is order and beauty, Luxury, peace, and pleasure."

- Charles Baudelaire, "L'invitation Au Voyage"
