Kamala's inspiration comes from ancient tribal rain drums. Rain drums are common to many cultures across Southeast Asia and are considered sacred symbols that epitomize aesthetic beauty. The basin of this lavatory is covered with a low relief pattern that begins at the vessel's edge and covers the surface with alternating bands of elevated dots, ridges, scrolls and links. Towards the center of the basin, a ring of columns direct the water's flow toward the integrally cast drain.
Kamala was a material exploration that was achieved through a partnership with a Utah based foundry to achieve the level of craftsmanship and finish in the bronze casting that was required.
