Historic Copenhagen department store Illum was founded in 1891 by entrepreneurial visionary Anton Carl Illum, building off of a single building unit to create a truly unique retail location inextricably tied to the heart of the city. In 1972, a new concrete façade inspired by ‘casemate architecture’ was erected, which remains a signature of the building today. Throughout its century-long run, Illum has been a key arbiter of taste for fashion and design in Denmark and abroad.
Illum’s internal design team wished to update their washrooms to give shoppers a consistent level of experience throughout their high-end department store.
The Splash Lab was thrilled to create the hand-washing experience for Illum shoppers and staff in a beautiful store with a rich design heritage. Partnering with Illum, we designed and supplied our Monolith Basin System in Glacier White Corian, which utilised Corian legs with internal steel framework to make it fully self-supporting. IR sensor taps were installed to achieve a matching aesthetic and greater sustainability.
