This year Agape releases a new version of its DR bathtub using the Rain C Mosaic finish designed by award-winning Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka for Mutina ceramics.

Part of the Phenomenon collection by Yoshioka, the Rain Mosaics are made from homogenous porcelain straws in 5 mm thicknesses fixed together densely, replicating the pattern of falling rain. They also come in three colors: A, B and C.

A nice add-on to the DR original, a collaboration between Agape and Brazilian Studio Mk27 completed in 2014, this version follows the raw earth coating by Matteo Brioni introduced last year. This year Brioni welcomed visitors to check out his clay finishes inside the Agape 12 space, the brand’s innovative concept store at via Statuto 12.
