Graffio and Modula: ceramic gives opposites sensations becoming the protagonist in two lines of bathroom furnitures made by Mia Italia Bathroom
Janus represents the guardian of every form of passage and change, in this case two diametrically opposed surfaces that evolve from the same material: ceramic. Graffio and Modula are two lines of furniture that use ceramic as the surface of the doors. Same material, but diametrically opposite surfaces to the touch and sight.
