Slide by Cory Grosser is a combination shelf and towel holder for modern bathrooms. The unique design allows towels to be displayed in the folded position and hung for drying after use. Defined by a pure aesthetic, slide is meant to create a graphic composition on the wall. The use of continuous lines and fluid surfaces allow the piece to appear minimal, yet warm and inviting to the touch.
Slide is made of Stainless Steel and Cristalplant Biobased, an eco-friendly, moldable material with a unique visual appearance and touch. Cristalplant® Biobased, is the world’s first eco-sustainable solid surface material. It is 100% recyclable and derived from 30% plant based resins and 50% aluminum hydrate recovered from the extraction of aluminum. It is low-voc and GreenGuard Certified. Cristalplant® Biobased is Made in Italy.
