Prime. For All.

Goman aims to design products for All, which may be suitable in the most varied contexts. After Flight and Flat Washbasins and New Age furniture, the company adds to its catalogue, the PRIME washbasin, the first countertop basin for everyone. Goman is opening other doors to obtain new solutions in for All bathroom.

Thanks to the decennial experience of the designer Francesco Rodighiero in the field of inclusive products, and with the collaboration of the R&D department, it was possible to develop the first countertop washbasin, coordinated with accessories and components, able to guarantee compliance with regulations, to respect for the dignity of individuals.

With a few simple installation precautions, the accessible bathroom can blend with the elegance of the reception structures, and with the elegance of the most refined domestic environments. Once again we wanted to demonstrate that the bathroom must be an environment open to everyone, and with style.

The idea

No harsh indications

The front edge, normally, presents itself with a pronounced concavity in the sinks dedicated to people with disabilities. It has also become the symbol or stereotype of the ‘washbasin for the disabled’.

A distincive sign

This distinctive sign has become an integral part and in continuity with the overall curvilinear design of the entire external perimeter, and has been synthesized in an element with an ‘enveloping’ shape for the person, almost a “platform” for the personal hygiene.

Contemporary bathroom

Solutions with countertop washbasins are increasingly common, and reflect the taste and needs of contemporary furniture. The goal was to create a product that until then wasn’t available on the market, ensuring compliance with the regulations and needs of disabled people.

Inclusive hospitality

Each accommodation facility (hotels, pensions, tourist villages, campsites, etc.) must have a certain number of rooms accessible also to people with reduced or impaired mobility. Thanks to Prime it’s possible to design all rooms with accessible bathrooms, guaranteeing the elegance in the Design for hospitality.

Home scenario

Renovation of the bathroom by users of the fourth age (over 74 years olda) is increasingly common. This is the case of the typical small and realistic domestic bathroom, in which the bathtub is replaced by the shower.

Interviews e co-design

Collecting feedback and building prototypes

Knowing that we were doing something new, we needed to have a feedback from the end users, to understand how to make the product as functional and comfortable as possible. The only solution was to involve users in the design process, as Design for All requires. And keep in mind all the comments and suggestions that Goman has received over 20 years of experience.

After many models, several elbow rest prototypes were made to be tested and to find out which features made it more comfortable. In this way was possible for us to understand the correct use, behavior and needs. Thanks to 5 users aged between 25 and 70 years, was achieved the right ratio between the support surface, inclination and, most important, the soft edges.
