folding bar

The new ergonomic folding bar Shade produced by Goman thanks to the support of the Goman R&D department, was created with the intention of continuing to open up paths and guidelines for bathroom furnishings Design for All where people’s needs and emotions are the core. The Shade folding bar is the result of a synthesis where the technical element hides like a shadow in the surface of the wall (Shade), blending elegantly with the other existing elements and with the refined atmospheres of contemporary design.

The opportunity

The starting point

The project began, unusually, from a technical element: a high-performance stainless steel movement system. This element, developed thanks to Goman’s R&D department, was already available and used for another product. Therefore, the idea developed around the possibility of re-using the system to bring to life another product that usually requires high performance in terms of tightness and load capacity: the folding bar, i.e. the support usually used in the bathroom for people with disabilities, especially people with reduced mobility.





Essentiality and transparency

Thanks to the optional structure available in the whole range of RAL colours and chrome finishes, the Shade folding bar deliberately avoids the orthopaedic and forcedly hospital-like appearance typical of classic folding bars, and fits carefully into any bathroom environment as an essential and transparent furnishing element.

Moreover, comfort studies confirm the greater user-friendliness compared to similar products, thanks to the tubular section that guarantees a good support surface.
