Exuberance and sophistication: the Dot316 and Haptic collections for The Meishan Cat House in Taipei

For the project of The Meishan Cat House, in Taipei (Taiwan), a singular home designed for peaceful and respectful coexistence between the owners and their pets, Ritmonio supplied the taps and fittings. A home of refined minimalism, characterised by a stylistic coherence between relaxing environments designed for such special needs.

Architecture and pet therapy

Medical studies show that sharing one's home with pets has health benefits: it helps lower blood pressure and heart rate, lowers cholesterol, normalises breathing and reduces stress. It gives children security and helps relieve separation anxiety when their parents are not at home. Furthermore, playing with a pet stimulates imagination and curiosity.

A refuge for owners and their pets

The Meishan Cat House, a project by Shih Shih Interior Design, is a true refuge with design features conceived and intended to accommodate the personalities and needs of owners and pets. One example? Furniture with vertical heights, important for cats, has been favoured, and a large outdoor area has been created where dogs can play. Large glass walls act as an osmotic link between indoor and outdoor, so that the owners' little friends can stay inside in peace, while the owners relax outside without losing sight of them.

Harmony and fluidity

A quest for harmony and fluidity that is enhanced in the bathroom, characterised by wall coverings in soft shades of pink and the choice of Ritmonio tapware in its most essential declinations, in line with the stylistic imprint of the home.

Pure, rigorous lines

The wall-mounted washbasin mixer is part of Ritmonio's Dot316 series. The pure, rigorous and rational lines of the collection, alternating with round and soft volumes, create a play of joints that demonstrates the brand's desire to create a naturally elegant product.

Eclectic and with personality

In the shower area, the Haptic tapware by Ritmonio in Brushed Dark Bronze finish with Cemento control was chosen, eclectic and with a strong personality, to make everything even more intimate and cosy.

Between form and function

Designed to amaze and excite, Ritmonio solutions respond to minimalist and refined tastes. An identity, balanced between form and function, that makes the tapware ideal for 'less is more' style contexts, as in this case, characterising bathroom environments.
