SODA Designers are at the very cutting edge of design, crossing epochs and genres to bring design that is absolutely the most current. Its contemporary not because it leaves the past behind, but rather that because it incorporates design history into a brand new context. For Rapsel, that blend of tradition and trailblazing is the epitome of modernity. Take, for instance, the ARNE bath that SODA has designed exclusively for Rapsel. SODA reimagines the comfort and clean lines of a mid-century furniture icon into the bath setting. Why shouldn’t a bath be as comfortable and inviting as a plush chair? This simple ingenuity matches Rapsel’s design aesthetic perfectly.
SODA is the husband and wife pair Nada Nasrallah & Christian Horner. Based in Vienna, Austria, the duo has worked across medium and style to build an eclectic but comprehensive design resume. Their past work with Rapsel, TAVOLINO limited edition portable newspaper-rack with integrated table, expressed an understanding of function and utilitarianism that is too often missing from design. Their other clients, like MDF Italia, Ligne-Roset, and WITTMANN, reinforce their impressive reputation. The ARNE bath is available at AF NY.
