A Dry Hamam To be present with your body in a bathroom does not necessarily have to mean that you stand under a shower. By making Hamam inspired products, we want to create another kind of wet room. In Iranian Hamam traditions the bathroom and its functions lies close to all bodily senses. The bathing ritual is spiritual in Iranian culture. We Iranian believe that the room is at least as important as the products in it. In our culture the room stands open to the humans various needs, it is the human, and how she uses her objects that form the room. The objects with their different materials in contrast and interaction with each other creates the character of the room.
From our memories and experiences of a Hamam, we have created new products that evoke life in old bathing rituals.
This project was made together with Mojdeh Hassani an Industrial Designer, studied at Konstfack. Our background and memories have brought us together in a project that resulted in the product line shown in Greenhouse at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013.
